provides paid internships to college students who are struggling to pay down college debt and in turn helps local nonprofits
by providing needed support. Interns help local organizations shape their outward brands by improving their websites, updating photos and videos and leading campaigns.
The innovative organization is hosting a benefit
Dec. 17 at a secret location in the Cincinnati neighborhood of College Hill and is inviting the community to participate in an unorthodox way of retrieving a free ticket: a scavenger hunt video with clues leading to its location. The video with clues leading to the location of the tickets was recently posted on Charitable Words’ fundraising website.
The benefit will feature free food and live performances by three bands: B. Shields
and Coconut Milk
Partygoers will be able to bid on different items like a one-week stay at a two-bedroom condominium in Scottsdale, Ariz., Reds gear with four infield box tickets to a 2016 regular season game, a two-month Title Boxing Club
membership with gloves and hand wraps among other prizes.
The location of the benefit will be announced 24 hours prior to the event, says Tyler Mechlem, a graphic design and animation intern at Charitable Words. Tickets are $10 and tax-deductible, with proceeds benefiting Charitable Words and its interns.
