Global Paint for Charity is seeking a dynamic PR and Marketing intern to assist with internal and external marketing and a variety of other tasks and projects. Are you passionate about the world and want to make a difference? Global Paint for Charity is looking for a person with a background in external and internal marketing for nonprofits or sports and entertainment to help us bring awareness about our paint recycling and donation programs, and other programs such as recruiting volunteers for our frequent painting projects for low-income families and homeless in our communities.
The Global Paint for Charity, Inc. ("GPC" or "Global Paint") is a notable 501(c) 3 non-profit organization works with companies, Home Improvement Retailers, households and manufacturers to salvage paint and supplies to change lives, transforms communities and protect the environment. The paint and supplies are then donated to various channels for construction, rejuvenation and beautification of schools, hospitals, churches, women’s centers and family homes in developing countries and certain communities in the United States. Through our Paint Project & Beautification programs, we have worked with local and international humanitarian, faith and community groups, and volunteers from many corporations to paint in neglected areas within our local communities.
At Global Paint for Charity, we believe a coating of paint on the walls can have a significant, positive, and powerful impact on people’s lives for many years to come. And we know that here in the United Sates people love colors. And colors are an essential component of success, creativity and commitment to arts and culture. But 1.6 billion individuals can't afford a gallon of paint to paint their home. The cost of a gallon of paint is simply too high.
It’s estimated that 80 percent of the world’s homes and schools face the dreary reality of unpainted walls, and more than 70 million children have never had access to a painted classroom. Thousands of gallons of paint can be shipped in sea containers paid for by contributions from generous people and corporations. Paint does not only make communities brighter, but it also protects against mold, bacteria and dangerous germs. The presence of which have a significant the health of less fortunate communities. And of course, the environment is better protected by recycling paint, instead of dumping it in landfills.
