Geared Advertising brought my nonprofit to fruition

Amid the COVID pandemic, Career Sparks was imagined, a nonprofit helping disadvantaged children with career exploration via a virtual setting. Being the Executive Director of Women's March Foundation helped me navigate the extensive paperwork and business requirements needed to start a nonprofit organization but I needed help architecting the platform and overall program.

The one guy I knew could help me was Bil O'Neill from Geared Advertising, as we had worked closely together for several years when I held the position of VP of Marketing for Fatburger Corporation. Without hesitation Bil poured his passion, innovation and laser focused thoroughness into building my nonprofit. From crafting the initial concept, throwing his whole team on developing the online platform to test marketing the newly created site --Bil held my hand the whole way. He nudged me out of my comfort zone, challenged me to think bigger and supported me when I took flight. His level of care and attention to detail has always been his strong point, but what makes him special is his raw creativity. Usually you'd have to sacrifice one of these qualities for the other at ad agencies, but Bil seems to deliver both with ease.

Now a 501c3 national powerhouse, Career Sparks has grown nationally...3,000 members strong and continues to provide opportunity to those children that need it most. Hands down, our platform would not be available today if it wasn't for the perseverance and sheer will of Bil O'Neill.
