Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America (SARDAA), has been designated a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and is working to help this underserved population and their families.
I designed a logo and invites for SAARDA and they didn't even use them. They never really communicated with me about why they didn't want to use them or what I could do to fix them.If they don't want to work with remote people they should advertise to use local people.
I love volunteering for SARDAA. I'm able to help with web design and social media campaigns remotely. The volunteer coordinator is wonderful and provides quick feedback and guidance when I need approval or info to finish my work.
