One month from today... an industry changes

Good Morning All:

In exactly one month from today, 15 eager and promising leaders will arrive to TM Advertising here in Dallas to present the first assignment.  The assignment: "Develop your own ad agency brand".  Since the team was selected in March, they have been meeting with one another virtually to develop a brand identity and website for the agency that they will run for the summer.

We are eager for the 5th class of our iCR8 summer boot camp and truly know that this year's group is going to be incredibly dynamic and diverse, as they are coming from 5 different countries outside of the United States.   We are excited about the global perspective that they will share with one another and the insight that they will add to the clients that they will work with this summer.

We hope that you can aid in the success of the students by participating in our donation drive SUPPLY & DEMAND.  We are asking for those who are able to send gift cards from Walmart, Target, or local restaurants for the boot campers who will be spending their summer in an unpaid internship.  More details about the drive can be found on our website at:

Also, please visit our site if you would like to make a monetary donation or sign up to volunteer.  We also accept positivity, well wishes and prayers for a successful summer. :)

Thank you continuous support of our organization and most importantly the future and changing face of our industry.  Please email us with any questions or if you need any more information.

Yours in service,
