“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands — one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Audrey Hepburn
Here at Persist Digital we wholeheartedly believe this to be true. Our agency is a small one, but with persistence, teamwork and positive attitude we are and will continue to accomplish great things.
Recently we collaborated with Compassion Action, a charitable foundation that supports kindness, humanity, and mercy while serving the needs of African American communities through social, cultural, educational and religious programs.
How Persist Digital Helped Compassion Action Website Shine in a New Light
As a diverse company, with teammates from various backgrounds, we can fully support their cause and were happy to help them out when they were having issues with their website. Namely, they lost their website due to hosting account close up and lack of backups. Our team helped install backup plugins to make sure they don’t experience these issues again.
We also moved them to a super fast dedicated VM hosting and redesigned their website. With a little help from us, they have now learned a lot more about WordPress so they can maintain their website on their own.
Compassion Action Values and Goals
Compassion Action Foundation strives to bring awareness to inequalities due to illness, unemployment, psychological and physical disadvantages, to aid with education, health services and to promote the unity of the community. Much like Persist, they think big and with their effort the change is evident.
Some of their programs we think are just awesome are Activity, Sports and Art program and Mentorship program because they bring the youth of Newark together in sports and positive activities rather than crime. Since Newark has been infamous as one of the most dangerous cities in New Jersey, we think this endeavor can turn things around and cast a positive light on the future of young people in this city. Positive role models in the community together with support and guidance can go a long way in brightening someone’s life.
Persist Digital Inspiring Change, One Small Step at a Time
Persist team is one small family and we take care of each other as we take care of our clients. We would like to encourage you to do the same. Be proactive in your community. Trust us, you will feel fulfilled and overjoyed to have made a difference, however small it may seem.
One way you can help is by joining the Compassion Action’s volunteer program. Community services don’t have to be boring! On the contrary, there is something for everyone’s interests – from book clubs to trips abroad and friendship dinners! We really enjoyed working with them on the new website design. What’s work without a little fun and good company?
Persist Digital Agency will always, as a team, try to contribute to causes we believe in. Donating our time and work for a foundation like Compassion Action has been a pleasure and a privilege. Our company thrives on meaningful work, creative experiences and giving back. We are united in doing something greater than ourselves, thinking big and achieving our dreams! Our unique personalities together form a wonderful synergy and we think that is a great example for the world today. We dare to not just imagine but to create a better tomorrow, for ourselves, our society and our clients. We persist in oneness.
