One of the greatest things about being a marketing agency is working with organizations that give back to people. Trilix has been a proud supporter of the James Arthur Albert Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children in Belize. The foundation awards scholarships to children in Belize who cannot afford the costs of school, books and uniforms, and also raises money to build their classrooms.
By sending these children to school and building their classrooms, the foundation gives them the opportunity to achieve their dreams of earning an education to become lawyers, teachers, doctors and more. Many scholarship recipients have since graduated high school, and with the help of the James Arthur Albert Foundation, now attend university.
When Trilix President Todd Senne joined the foundation’s board, Trilix began helping with the organization’s main event — Books & Bricks for Belize, a fun-filled live and silent auction. We help with event preparation and management, invitations, programs, materials, video and more. This year, we also redesigned their website, showing multiple children’s success stories.
Since 2010, the foundation has awarded more than 1,700 scholarships and has purchased $250,000 dollars’ worth of textbooks, uniforms, shoes, school lunches and fees. At this year’sevent, we raised more than $114,000. This money will help send 200 children to high school next year who otherwise could not, and up to 20 will attend a university. On top of that, we also raised money for an addition to the two-story building we built last year at Julian Cho High School. It was a great night to support a great cause, and we are already looking forward to next year’s event! We are honored to be part of such a wonderful organization.
