On Joy, Hope, and the Year Ahead

Tracy Marlowe  |  January 5, 2024

Giving back is one of our greatest passions at Creative Noggin. For the 2023 holiday season, we gave back to both our clients and communities to spread joy and hope far and wide. 

Spreading Joy to our Clients 

Each year, we put our noggins together to select a gift to be shared with all of our clients. In 2023, we decided to enlist the youngest members of our Creative Noggin family to envision and create the gift. 

Little ones aged 4 to 12 designed notecards based on this simple prompt: “What brings you joy?” 

Answers included: 

  • “Rainbows, glitter, and all the pretty things.” – Kennedy, age 4 
  • “Rainbows, pets, and my mom.” – River, age 6 
  • “Baseball and new shoes.” – Doug, age 10 
  • “Nature’s beauty.” – Rev, age 12 

Spreading Hope to Our Communities

As you may know, we are a fully remote team with primary “offices” in San Antonio, Texas and Sacramento, California. With that in mind, we chose two organizations in these regions to support with a donation in 2023. 

Those organizations were Family Violence Prevention Services and Women’s Empowerment. 

Women's Empowerment educates and empowers homeless Sacramento-area women with the skills and confidence necessary to get a job, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and regain a home for themselves and their children. 

Family Violence Prevention Services is a San Antonio organization working to break the cycle of family violence by providing shelter, transitional housing, and parenting education. 

We are honored to help these incredible local organizations continue providing hope, support, and life-changing services to those in need. 

Reflecting on 2023 and Looking Forward to the Year Ahead 

I feel prouder of our team at Creative Noggin than ever. From uplifting our clients’ brands with innovative strategies to hiring exceptional new team members, we are the strongest we have ever been. 

I am thrilled by our achievements—not just our success, but about the communities and organizations we touch. I believe that intentionality and continuing to focus on our mission (to empower smart, passionate women to enjoy their work and life) will be the key to making 2024 a year of profound impact and growth. By staying true to our values and continuing to forge connections within our communities, we'll not only achieve our goals but also uplift those around us. 

From all of us at Creative Noggin, we wish you a 2024 full of joy, hope, and success!
