The HERoine Legacy Online Magazine Debuts!

In honor of Women's History Month, we're bringing The HERoine Legacy- an online magazine highlighting the women of today who will bring forth a legacy for tomorrow! We were so inspired about these women individually and I hope you choose to come back to read their stories time and again, if you're feeling defeated. Hope you enjoy!!

This is dedicated to the great-grandmother, Rev. Addie L. Wyatt, of our creative director, Brian K. Wyatt!!

FTP Celebrates Women’s History Month with an Online Magazine Launch

Fresh Touch Publicity will be launching The #HERoineLegacy online magazine in honor of Women's History Month. Instead of highlighting all of the amazing women of our past, #theFRESHteam decided to highlight the women of today who took advantage of the path created by those amazing women of our past. The #HERoineLegacy will give you a first look at these lady heroes who are making strides towards etching a legacy for themselves- big or small.

The #HERoineLegacy's official publication date will be Wednesday, March 23 at 3:08pm, in honor of Addie L. Wyatt's recent March 8 birthday, who will be featured in the magazine and who is the great-grandmother of our Creative Director, Brian K. Wyatt, Jr.

"I decided to take an assessment of the women around me and I got excited that I am privy to know some great, everyday women," said TJ Jefferson, FTP's owner. "Their stories may not normally make your national headlines but I bet when you read their stories, you're going to want to know more about them."

The women included in this inaugural edition are (in last name order): Sherpri Giles, LaKeisha Harrison, LaKisha Johnson, Lauren Mattox, Ashley Northington, LaTrice Ryan, Tami Sawyer, TaSheba Thornton, and Karen Williams. This group consists of entrepreneurs, corporate climbers, community drivers, purpose walkers, and faith followers.

"It's a diverse group as far as background," Jefferson said. "At the end of the day, we're all women so some parts of their stories may be similar but the key takeaway is there is more than one way to overcome an obstacle or get to the road of success. These women take you on the journey with them and it's a beautiful view. I can't wait to everyone reads their stories."

In the meantime, follow us on Facebook to read quotes from these dynamic women. There are no immediate plans to expand the online magazine beyond March except to honor a new set of women next year.

Meet the #SimplyGiving Project Scavenger Hunt Participants

MEMPHIS, Tenn.- Seven Memphis-based community leaders and advocates will be representing local nonprofit organizations in a city-wide scavenger hunt during Fresh Touch Publicity's 5th Annual #SimplyGiving Project, a week-long grassroots fundraiser for local nonprofits, October 4-10. The date of the actual scavenger hunt is Saturday, October 10, 11 a.m. beginning at The Candle Bakery located at 2838 Hickory Hill Rd, Ste 11. Back in May, these nonprofit organizations were nominated to be represented during the scavenger hunt: the Memphis HBCU Scholarship Foundation, H.U.S.H. Inc, It's a Girl's World, Old Path Ministries, Our Grass Our Roots, Liberated Audio, and Raising the B.A.R.

The community leaders randomly will select the nonprofit that he or she will be trying to win the grand prize for. They will be paired with a representative of that organization and they will be given clues to different businesses around the city that will lead them to the finish line.

"It was important for us to use community leaders who know the city, who are already supporting local businesses and who advocate for the smaller nonprofit organizations," said TJ Jefferson, Principal Owner of Fresh Touch Publicity. "We choose people who may not always get spotlighted but they're doing the work anyways."

Volunteers are needed to help make the event a success. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/sg5volunteers. We will have a volunteer orientation but if you have any questions before then, contact Volunteer Coordinator Amber Covington at simplygiving@freshtouchpublicity.com
