Help The Blind Project come up with a name for their new initiative!

 

Our friends at The Blind Project have two major initiatives, one is Biographe, and the second is ___________.  They don’t have a name for it!  They have come up with some great names, but they are unable to use those due to duplication of names with other organizations.  They have tried, “reveal”, “restore”, “mend”, and nope, nope, and nope…they are all taken.

No worries, because we have you: An army of creative minds, and we are sure you will think of a descriptive, hip, and worthy name for our __________ initiative.

Here are some details.  The Blind Project will accept input on their facebook page until next Saturday, March 6th.   At that time, TBP staff will vote on the names, and announce the chosen name and the winner one week later.  The people that submitted the top three names, as chosen by TBP staff, will receive a TBP logo t-shirt, and our appreciation.

Mission Statement: ___________ is an initiative that focuses on holistic renewal of those people that have been exploited by the commercial sex trade or are part of an at-risk population in South East Asia by offering restorative programs for health and well-being with our partner organizations.

So here is how you can help

  1. Click on the blog and read the bost so you can understand what this initiative is about. (check, you have done this)
  2. Go to their facebook page (Located Here), find the post called, “Help us name our new initiative!”
  3. Leave a comment with the name you came up with, and then tell them what inspired you.  That’s it.
  4. Oh, and tell your friends about this open-source contest!  We always appreciate that.

This is what makes DACS so special. The fact that artists from all around the globe are united to fight trafficking. To all the DACS artists, Thanks for being such an inspiration!
