A cause I’m personally fond of
A portion of the money you spend with Wizard of Ads Johnny Molson, Ltd, is regularly donated to The National Speech & Debate Association. For almost 90 years it was known as The National Forensic League, and it was in this special group of people I found my own voice. Our ability to communicate clearly with each other is both vital and often overlooked. In a world that is increasingly intertwined, complicated, and confounding, a student’s ability to clearly speak out an idea can make all the difference.
From the mission statement: “…communication skills are essential for empowering youth to become engaged citizens, skilled professionals, and honorable leaders in our global society. We connect, support, and inspire a diverse community of honor society members committed to fostering excellence in young people through competitive speech and debate activities.”
It’s something that has always been important to me, so while I am helping you communicate your message, you are helping me help these good folks. For that, I thank you.
