Case study: Smart Pups – Charity Copywriting

Helping a small charity raise awareness

I recently took some time away from work to have a little break and, in that time, discovered Smart Pups. Just as Seeing Eye Dogs make the world more navigable for the blind, specially trained Smart Pups help children with special needs gain independence and confidence.

Copywriting for press releases and case studies

After making contact with their publicity manager, Suzie, via my Facebook page, I offered my services to her free of charge. So far I’ve helped them produce:

  • A clearer definition of who they are and what they do.
  • A press release.
  • A case study for the Sunny Coast Kids website.
  • A recruitment letter for Smart Pups ambassadors.

In a previous post, I talked about writing free of charge for charities when you’re starting out as a copywriter, to help build up your portfolio. But I would also suggest to established copywriters that the occasional stint of pro-bono copywriting is a great idea. Using your skills for good is a great feeling and is often more valuable to a charity than a cash donation.

If you’d like to learn more about Smart Pups, make a donation, or sponsor a puppy, then visit their website.

Client feedback

Here’s what Suzie had to say:

“I have great pleasure in recommending Kate for any copywriting requirements you have. Kate is currently working with SmartPups Autism Assistance Dogs and has delivered high quality work. She understands exactly the message that we wish to convey, has always got back to us in a timely manner, and is a pleasure to deal with.”

    I’ve been doing some freebies for not for profits this year and agree with you. It’s a great way to gain experience and do something positive for the community.

    • Yep – sadly I’ve done a bit less this year but I intend to put that right next year.
