"Scott has been instrumental in creating our new Demand Organic campaign, which is the perfect hook for the new consumer audience we'd like to reach. The Demand Organic concept is edgy, it's true to our roots, it's a call to action, and it's a bridge from our longtime supporters to a newer, broader audience. He has also offered invaluable assistance every step of the way, from reviewing the content to commenting on design and tying it all into fundraising. This project would not have happened without his guidance, knowledge and expertise."
