“Pro bono publico”, in Latin, means “for the public good.” This generally refers to services provided by companies for free, especially to non-profit organizations or causes the company personally believes in. Over the decades, pro bono projects have become more essential and substantial, and are considered a significant chain in NGO (non-governmental organization) projects and CSR (corporate social responsibility) campaigns. Remarkably, many corporations are now more aware of the responsibilities they have to employees, customers, and communities. Pro bono is an advocacy in itself; a service that’s aimed at helping, not gaining profit.
Acknowledging the huge impact, the campaign had on Vietnamese society and the value of all community projects done by other enterprises, Ivy Nhi Chau, CEO of Ivy+Partners has pledged her commitment to providing pro bono projects at least once every quarter.
“As a PR agency focusing on culture, Ivy+Partners always aims to bring practical contributions to the public. With the creative ability of an experienced team and the strong network with press and influencers, Ivy+Partners wants to contribute a part of our strength to brands and organizations in their journey of conveying positive energy and life-changing messages to the community,” said Ivy Nhi Chau.
