Armed with a healthy dose of goodwill towards others, Campus Media Group hit the road for our inaugural volunteer day on Friday. This year we gave back to our community by volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, a Minnesota-based non-profit organization with additional locations in Illinois and Arizona. Their mission – “Feeding God’s Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit” – became our mission for the day and we dove in. With our teamwork we were able to help feed 16 kids every day for an entire year.
It was a fun and rewarding volunteer event for all of us. Not only did we get to help starving children in nearly 70 countries, we got to work as a team towards a noble goal. We are planning to make our volunteer day an annual event – any suggestions on where we should head next year?

Campus Media Group has begun accepting applications for the 2011/2012 College Newspaper PSA Program.
Every year, Campus Media selects one nonprofit organization that has an important message to share with college students. We will work to have that organization’s PSA ad placed in some of the nation’s top college and university newspapers free of charge for the 2011-2012 school year. Where available, online ads can also be provided to papers having an online edition. Hundreds of college newspapers throughout the United States participated last year, donating thousands of dollars in free advertising space.
Campus Media Group is a college marketing agency that represents more than 1,800 college newspapers nationally. Its extensive experience working to place ads for national brands has given Campus Media the ability to work with student publications to also help non-profit organizations who rely on donated media space.
In previous years, Campus Media has worked to build awareness for organizations such as: Inspire USA, The Campus Kitchens Project, the National Council on Problem Gambling, and the National Students of AMF.
Anastasia Goodstein of the Inspire USA Foundation, says, “Being chosen for the College Newspaper PSA program was wonderful for ReachOut.com. Our ads ran in hundreds of newspapers across the country driving traffic to our site, which offered resources and inspirational real stories from college students who have made it through a tough time. Working with Campus Media Group was a breeze and a pleasure. I highly recommend any non-profit organization trying to reach college students to apply for this program.”
This program is open to nonprofit organizations in the U.S. Those organizations looking for national exposure to a college audience about a cause that will resonate with students are encouraged to apply.
