Nine nonprofits chosen for 2013 Dalton Cares Initiative
Check out full versions of all the Dalton Cares posters for the selected nonprofits at www.DaltonCares.com.
We are excited to unveil the artwork for the nine local nonprofits selected to participate in the annual Dalton Cares charitable initiative. The nine finalists were selected out of more than 550 nominations for nearly 200 nonprofits in the Atlanta, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa areas.
“We are overwhelmed by the great response to Dalton Cares. This is the first year we have expanded this campaign beyond North Florida, and we are glad that we did,” said Jim Dalton, president and CEO for the Dalton Agency. “It is rewarding to see all the passion that people have for these deserving organizations and we look forward to helping these excellent nonprofits raise awareness and promote their important work.”
Each will receive an Agency-designed creative awareness poster that is valued at $5,000. All nine nonprofits will receive their poster artwork to use as they wish.
Posters created for the nine finalists will be showcased at the Dalton Agency’s Jacksonville office’s storefront windows March 5 through the summer and digital versions are located at www.DaltonCares.com.
Public votes can be cast online through www.DaltonCares.com or at the Agency’s storefront windows by scanning the poster’s QR code with a smart phone’s QR code reader app. Members of the public are encouraged to use social media to share their favorite poster design and vote for the one they feel should be the overall winner. The Dalton Agency will award the nonprofit with the most social media votes a $1,000 cash donation.
“The goal of Dalton Cares has always been to raise awareness and conversation around these great nonprofits that so often get over looked as we go through our busy days.” says Kevyn Faulkenberry, Dalton Agency VP/executive creative director. “We want to do everything we can to promote these nine organizations on our social media networks and remind every one how fortunate we are there are so many real people out there working to make our communities better places.
The winning nonprofit, which is determined by public voting, will be announced April 23.

Here’s our own Misty Skipper, director of strategic communications and public affairs, with Buddy Valastro, TLC’s “Cake Boss.”
Tom Coughlin Jay Fund is being featured on TLC’s “Cake Boss.” The first airing of the show is January 7 at 10:30 p.m. It was filmed with Coach Coughlin and pediatric oncology patients from the New York/New Jersey area and Giants players during the charity’s annual ice cream social at the Giants’ training facility. The highlight of the episode is a special cake reveal from the “Cake Boss.”
“Helping to coordinate the filming of the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund episode of TLC’s ‘Cake Boss’ was a really special experience,” said Misty Skipper, director of strategic communications and public affairs. “Not only did we get to spend the day with Coach Coughlin and Giants team members as they gave behind-the-scenes tours of their practice facility and held an ice cream social for local pediatric oncology patients, we also got to meet Buddy and the Carlo’s Bakery team. While I have watched the show for years and looked in amazement at the masterpieces they create, nothing compares to seeing (and tasting) the true artisanship in person.”
