Non-Profits we SupportOur company has gone through some dramatic changes since June of 2010, and as a result of those changes, we’ve really had to re-focus on what is important as a company. Prior to June, we were a happy-go-lucky small business, doing well with a couple of large corporate accounts here in Atlanta. Well, life happened.
The owner of our little company had to get a kidney transplant, a life-changing surgery that threw us for a loop – but also put us on to an entirely different path. By the altruistic help of an amazing woman and a caring community, Chris received a kidney transplant on November 12th, 2010 and both he and his donor are doing well.

We were also fortunate to be able to share our story in a podcast about how this blessing has transformed our lives and company:
Through this incredible journey, we as company realized that our role is not to simply make money and take care of our families – but to also be a contributing partner in our community. To this end, we decided as a company to take an active role in our communities and help in any way we can Non-Profit organizations that make a tangible difference for the people in their areas of concern.
Whiteboard Promotions is committed to assisting Non-Profits who demonstrate a genuine care for their local community, and make a significant impact into the lives of those whom they serve.
