Another one of my responsibilities has been creating and sending out a newsletter to volunteers using a program called Mail Chimp. Mail Chimp is a FREE e-mail service that allows you to create templates for a newsletter or ad for a company and send it out to different e-mail groups. I’ve enjoyed learning the ins and outs of how to operate Mail Chimp and think it will be helpful in future career opportunities. It’s been extremely helpful to CASA because I was able to take all their e-mail addresses from Emma, a paid e-mail service CASA had been paying for, and transfer them into Mail Chimp so that they no longer have to pay for Emma. Before CASA, I had never heard of Mail Chimp.
Above is the flyer I created for a fundraiser CASA had, as well as the front of the postcard.
