As the age-old adage goes, “To do well, we must do good,” this is a mantra we take to heart at Gale Branding. The power of giving-back cultivates a thriving community and is often the cornerstone of many successful public relations campaigns.
Our agency is committed to building long-term partnerships with charities, causes, and not-for-profit organizations that are committed to unbiased healthcare, philanthropy, cultural inclusivity, and creating a global culture that brings us together and raises us all up.
SOROKA MEDICAL CENTER
Since 2016, Gale Branding has supported public relations efforts on behalf of the American Friends of Soroka Medical Center. Soroka is Israel’s leading healthcare institution serving the country’s most diverse and fastest-growing regions. Their work exemplifies a deep commitment to outstanding medical care and peaceful coexistence by providing exceptional healthcare for all, regardless of race, religion, or politics.
STAR OF DAVID PROJECT
Fundraising and the Arts
In June of 2018, the agency partnered with renowned artist and filmmaker Marc Bennett to host a Day of Giving. This event raised funds for the “Star of David” Project. These funds will allow Soroka to commission Marc Bennett to create an original work of art that will become the focal point of the Comprehensive Cancer Center’s healing garden. This partnership will also generate a continual revenue stream for the Cancer Center through merchandising of the artwork at the hospital, in addition to a percentage of worldwide art sales and licensed merchandise in perpetuity.
