Meet Our December Sponsor Spotlight – Do It Local
WHAT IS DO IT LOCAL?
Do It Local, LLC, co-founded by Heather and Patrick Brady in Mohnton, PA, is a cause-marketing-fundraising company that connects locally owned businesses in Berks County who care about our community with local charities, nonprofits and organizations to create mutually beneficial relationships through cross promotion.
After selling advertising for regional and national companies for a decade, Heather Brady’s passion for helping local charities and local families drove her career in advertising to focus on connecting local businesses with other local organizations. It never made sense to Heather that local organizations would sell national coupon books for fundraising, when local entrepreneurs would support their cause. On average, local businesses donate twice as much as national chains to local organizations. By selling national coupons, organizations were promoting national chains rather than local business. Heather knew that if there was a medium dedicated to the mutual success of both locally owned business and fundraising for local organizations, that it would deepen relationships and boost success, all while strengthening our local economy. Heather’s husband, Patrick’s, passion for technology and IT complimented Heather’s passion, and the Do It Local app mobile was developed.
