Personalized promo pens can help raise awareness

The Rape Abuse Incest National Network gives us a sobering statistic. It is a sad fact that every 2 minutes in the U.S. someone is sexually assaulted. We’re convinced that those numbers will drop if we all work together.

I was given the nicest little promotional pens the other day and it got me to thinking about getting some for work.  These were easy to write with and had a crisp clear logo. Best of all, I could tell what company the pens were donated from at a glance. That is exactly what you want in a promotional item. However, it isn’t always what you get.

At Hope for Healing.Org we have talked about buying a supply of engraved pens sat work for awhile now. The personalized pens can be an affordable way to get the word out about the nonprofit and raise awareness at the same time. Custom pen sets can also be used as gifts for volunteers or used as a donation incentive.

These days, almost any item can be personalized to fit your needs. We have also considered tote bags, stick-up and magnet calendars and plastic water bottles. Everyone is interested in going green these days. Eco friendly tote bags have also hit our radar screen.

If we purchase customized pens (or totes or another product) our mission to raise awareness of domestic and sexual violence will always be the same. We will continue to spread the word that no one deserves to be sexually assaulted or abused in any way.

To educate the public about sexual violence, Hope for Healing.Org is welcoming ideas and any other advice for marketing that you may have. To make suggestions feel free to email me or leave a comment below.

  1. All of the ideas you have come up with sound very useful for spreading the word. I think pens are great for the reasonable price point of most of them. rcj
