Asheville, NC – Darby Communications, a boutique public relations agency specializing in the outdoor, fitness and wellness industries, introduces the Stand Up Initiative for 2017. The new program will support environmentally-focused non-profit organizations by providing PR related services to those groups working towards environmental and sustainable advocacy, or the preservation and protection of public lands.
“The environment is woven into the fabric of our industry,” Founder of Darby Communications, Coral Darby states. “The Stand Up Initiative is a way for us to give back to the organizations who stand up for the wild places we all enjoy.”
Darby will select noteworthy organizations that exhibit a goal of protecting clean air, clean water, climate change, and/or deforestation mitigation. Selected recipients will receive the support of a team of experienced PR professionals to assist with fundraising efforts, event promotions, and/or social media campaigns.
