By Katie In PR or any business, it's easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day. The nitty-gritty, if you will. We all experience it. Finding an aspect of the job that feels special, valuable and worthwhile, well, it makes the gritty all the more bearable. We have the privilege of working alongside and helping to promote an incredible organization, the Joyful Heart Foundation. Working with JHF puts things in perspective, and to put it simply, feeds our spirit. The Joyful Heart Foundation, which was founded by “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” actress and advocate Mariska Hargitay, works to foster a community that turns toward the issues of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse. JHF provides knowledge, courage and compassion to survivors in order to end the cycle of violence and abuse and bring joy back to their lives. In the past year, we have helped Joyful Heart Foundation bring to light important topics, from the implications of vicarious trauma, to the vast number of rape kit backlogs that exist in our country due to the lack of policies requiring lab testing. These are issues that affect more people than we like to imagine. Later this month, we will celebrate a successful year, alongside leaders of this organization and supporters worldwide, at the Joyful Heart Foundation 2011 Gala (a recap of last year's event can be seen here). We couldn't be more excited, honored and proud. It is an understatement to say that it is our pleasure to support this great cause. What feeds your professional spirit?
