Good business and doing good for the world around us are ideals that Creative Approach has never seen as mutually exclusive. In fact, we have found that supporting our local communities has helped us do better business. Since we first opened our doors in 2005, we have put a focus on giving back in every city we support.
We are committed to making the world a better place as part of Creative Cares through our service to our customers, our communities, and our team. We work to support causes close to the hearts not only of our leadership team but of every team member. We work every day to be an integral part of our local communities as both an employer and a creative hub.
Every year, Creative Approach supports more than $100k to non-profits in Savannah and Atlanta through charitable giving, in-kind donations, and discounted non-profit pricing. We have pledged to build our a revenue sharing program to be available company-wide by the end of Spring 2019 that will allow our customers to dedicate a portion of an orders profit to help support to local charitable causes.
We built the foundation of Creative Approach on supporting local non-profits. I firmly believe that we owe a large part of success due to their efforts and support.

Equality is more than changing our company logo one month a year to include a rainbow background. We believe that all people should be treated equally and with respect regardless of the sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, ability, race, religion, or birthplace.
Creative Approach has proudly been a certified LGBTBE (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans Business Enterprise) as part of the NGLCC since 2015. We are 100% LGBT owned, and strive to make Creative Approach a safe haven for creatives from all walks of life. We proudly support the Human Right Campaign Atlanta, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of LGBTQ persons in Atlanta through activism and fundraising events.
We are also proud members and sponsors of both the Atlanta Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (AGLCC) and Metro Atlanta Association of Professionals (MAAP). Both organizations work tirelessly to connect and promote small to medium size businesses that are LGBTQ owned and connecting them through a partnership with larger organizations including Coca-Cola, SunTrust, and more.
The communities we live and work in play a critical role in how our employees and business thrives. Because of this, we are constantly seekings new ways to provide support to the organizations that impact the lives of those around us.
When Master Firefighter Michael Curry died in the line of duty as a member of the Savannah Fire Department, we came together with other local businesses to provide critical services and goods.
In the brisk cold of December, our team and friends came together for the Santa Speedo Run to raise more than $2.4k for Chris 180, an organization that protects thousands of abused and neglected children.
We’ve also participated in the Miles For Meals, a 5k Run/Walk that helps benefits SCI’s Meals on Wheels program to help provide more than 9k meals week to seniors in need throughout coastal Georiga.
We’ve also been proud to partner with other organizations such as the Atlanta Beltline, Walk A Mile In Her Shoes, Midtown Alliance, Food Well Alliance, and many more.
I think one of the most rewarding elements of becoming an established business leader is the ability to provide support to local organizations. As a SCAD alumnus, the groups that utilize the creative arts hold a special place in my heart.

The Local Arts
Without artists and creatives, the world would be a very boring place indeed. That’s why we partner every year with WonderRoot, and non-profit solely focused on activism through the arts. They tackle difficult social issues and face them head-on by using art to spark new conversations. From legislation and protests work to showcasing the importance of support for local neighborhood restoration and preservation, WonderRoot has changed the landscape with which Atlanta artists can make a difference in their communities.

2018 Q3 Recipient:
Lost-n-Found Youth is the outgrowth of Saint Lost and Found, an LGBTQ homeless youth fund project of the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
You can help LNFY end homelessness among LGBTQ young people in Atlanta. Our mission begins with the hotline and drop-in center which offer hope to anyone 13 to 26 and provides basic necessities including showers, food, a computer lab, referrals, and supportive services. For young people 18 to 26, LNFY extends a range of care from emergency and transitional housing, to educational opportunities, help with job applications, links to medical care, and individualize goal setting and support. Our current three-year strategic plan calls for an expansion in services through the additional housing, expanded drop-in center hours, and engagement with additional partner organizations to meet an ever-growing need.
