Every year, community members and donors alike highly anticipate theChive’s Gold, Silver, and Black (GSB) Coin Dinner and Chive Charities’ Green Gala Weekend, aiming to celebrate their donors, recipients, and community members by spreading happiness in the world and making it 10% happier.

As the event dates draw near each year, flights are booked, road trips are planned, and accommodations are secured as Chivers from various states eagerly anticipate their pilgrimage to Austin, Texas.

Through meticulous planning and direction, I ensured the acquisition of high-quality visuals that not only showcased the event’s ambiance but also highlighted the featured products in their best light.

Simon’s Last Shot | Social Media Campaign

Simon, a 5-year-old boy, and his mother, Alina Gorniak, visited theCHIVE HQ to raise awareness about Sanfilippo Syndrome, a degenerative disorder caused by a missing enzyme, leading to toxic material buildup in the brain. Simon’s condition causes memory loss and will eventually result in the loss of motor skills, seizures, dementia, and death. Alina shared how Simon’s development has plateaued, but he works hard to maintain his skills, using focus and basketball to exercise his brain.

TheCHIVE and Chive Charities decided to help Simon’s family by raising funds for his immediate health needs, including an Augmentative Communication Device, an adaptive stroller, rock climbing for flexibility and endurance, and yoga classes. They also provided $10,000 for equine therapy, swim lessons, and yoga therapy. The community rallied together and achieved the $15,000 goal, offering Simon more precious time with his family.

The campaign became one of the most important efforts by theCHIVE and Chive Charities, with Simon’s life hanging in the balance. The community’s support and donations were greatly appreciated, and the family expressed gratitude for the love and care shown.
