Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”
“We are pleased to announce the Gettysburg Foundation has received a Silver Telly Award for our Giving Tuesday – Gettysburg Gives video series, directed by Brie Dadich, the Gettysburg Foundation’s Marketing Digital Media Content Producer,” said the Gettysburg Foundation’s Vice President for Advancement and Communications Elle Lamboy. “Thank you to all who supported our 2020 Giving Tuesday campaign in time, treasure, talent and encouragement. This is a huge win for our collective Gettysburg Foundation team,” added Lamboy.
Today’s announcement caps a year-long celebration of creators defying the limitations by embracing platforms to increase awareness about injustices and promote solidarity for movements, as well as geographical, like developing fully remote pipelines for dispersed teams.
