Charity Corner

This corner is used to feature 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organizations/Charities. This space has been established with the hopes to feature your organization, for FREE, in an online forum. Bi-monthly, new organizations will be featured. We are currently accepting organizations that hope to solicit donations for causes which serve communities throughout Illinois and the Greater Chicagoland areas. This is your opportunity to take advantage of FREE publicity for your organization as well as expand the possibility of donations. If you would like to see your organization featured in the #CharityCorner, please email Vau’ve Davis at: Also, feel free to tweet us using, (hashtag) #CharityCorner to share local organizations/charities, which you would like to have featured.

Why a “Charity Corner?”, Vau’ve Davis, founder of Official Anais Public Relations Firm, have always tried to find ways to give back to those less fortunate, ‘any way possible.’ After watching television shows like Secret Millionaire and Extreme Makeover Home Edition, she realized that there are countless small ways we can give back in our own right. Providing this platform for charities throughout Illinois to receive FREE publicity, is one of the many ways she plans to do so. Most small not-for-profit organizations simply can’t afford to hire marketing/PR teams to reach the people necessary to help fund their causes. This is just one of our ways of giving back; by learning more about causes that support our communities and building new positive relationships. Join us!

We enjoyed volunteering for 100 Black Men Chicago’s Scholarship Fair!

21st Century Youth Project: The 21st Century Youth Project (21CYP) harnesses students’ natural enthusiasm for technology, and shows them how they can become the designers of the future while delivering foundational skills in STEM curricula. The program has diverse levels of engagement. Not only does the program train students in business, technology, and math, but it also helps students in developing their critical- thinking, self-confidence and entrepreneurial skills. Proceeds from this #SharkTankSocial installments went to the 21YCP. We are appreciative of all that donated and participated.
