Atlanta Advertising Agencies Team Up to Help Local Nonprofit Organizations

BKV is helping co-founder of Sideways8 promote a free headshot day for local nonprofit organizations.


Atlanta advertising agency, BKV, is helping promote Co-Founder of Sideways8 and 48in48, Adam Walker’s, latest act of kindness. Over the past few years, Walker has been hard at work helping local nonprofits through the creation of websites, content and more with he and Co-Founder Jeff Hilimire’s event 48in48, which builds 48 custom websites for 48 local nonprofits in 48 hours. This year, he is taking his philanthropy one step further. Walker along with Co-Founder Aaron Reimann and the rest of the Sideways8 team have worked with Polar Notion to arrange a free headshot session for local nonprofits.

“One of nonprofits’ biggest obstacles is looking professional to their audience,” explains Walker. “We want to help our local nonprofits get over this hump by providing them with professional headshots to use in any and all of their marketing efforts.”

BKV has partnered with Sideways8 to help Atlanta-based nonprofits in the past.

This nonprofit picture day will take place at the Center for Civic Innovation on September 22 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.

“We have worked with Adam in the past and we absolutely admire his determination and innovation when it comes to helping the Atlanta nonprofit community,” BKV’s EVP, Director of Marketing and Nonprofit Accounts, Virginia Doty states. “BKV is committed to helping nonprofits both local and national achieve greater success, which is why we are eager to help spread the word of this generous event.”

This nonprofit picture day will take place at the Center for Civic Innovation on September 22 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. Any and all Atlanta nonprofits are welcome to attend, free of charge. Those who attend will receive two to four high-quality, professional headshots within a few weeks of the shoot.

The Center for Civic Innovation is located at 115 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Atlanta.
