Aritst and visual Journalist Michelle Micalizzi and fellow fearless entrepreneur with a heart, Tyler Butler, CEO of 11Eleven Consulting, are teaming up together on a community awareness series that will focus on one company’s social responsibility mission and the charities that they support. The goal of the project is to creatively demonstrate through visual journalism how giving back to communities is not only smart business, but the real reason most companies are even in business. Micalizzi owner of both Fearlessly Deliver and Fearless Art Works feels “that every human being is by our very nature a fearless work of art and that in fact that everything about life, art, business and community is a miraculous extraordinary work of art.”
As an artist Micalizzi, believes in painting with a purpose and using her chosen medium to impact positive change. Through the Art of Fearlessly Giving Back, Michelle has engaged Tyler Butler of 11Eleven Consulting to identify and highlight an outstanding corporate citizen. Butler, having deep roots in the realm of community relations, knew immediately that WebPT would be an ideal company to showcase.
“Volunteerism and community involvement has been at the heart of WebPT since our humble beginnings,” said Heidi Jannenga, co-founder and president of WebPT. “In fact, it’s one of our core values. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of generous people in our community, and we wholeheartedly believe in paying our good fortune forward. We are incredibly honored to be part of Michelle’s Art of Fearlessly Giving Back; it’s a brilliantly creative way to spark a dialogue about the impact of philanthropy and the role businesses play in growing their communities.”
Fearlessly Deliver, Fearless Art Works, 11Eleven Consulting and WebPT are joining forces for good and will be impacting six significant causes to give them additional visibility and raise funds on their behalf. A portion of the proceeds from each of Micalizzi’s 14 paintings will be contributed to the charity that they were inspired by. Charity partners for this innovative campaign include: Conscious Capitalism, PT Day of Service, Support My Club, The Arizona Science Center Girls in STEAM initiative, United Blood Services and the Desert Labrador Retriever Rescue.
This project has importance on many levels. “Companies and brands must act and communicate about how they positively impact their employees, communities and environment,” Butler said. “Brands that address these changing expectations increase loyalty, build trust, and ultimately strengthen their business and impact society.” WebPT is a prime example of operating with a conscious and together with Fearless Art Works their good deeds will be shared not only in Arizona, but also in the greater US and abroad.
