Four Feet Forward, the 10-year-old animal advocacy group based in Portland, OR, is looking for a PR firm to work on a pro bono project.

four feet forwardTo celebrate its anniversary, FFF plans to hold a contest for grassroots organizations that can’t afford to bankroll a PR campaign.

The organization with the best communications vision will win the professional services of the PR firm that responded to FFF’s RFP. It would donate at least 40 hours of pro bono work to the contest winner.

FFF serves as a clearinghouse to link grassroots animal rights groups with professionals who can provide them with legal, communications and accounting services.

The idea is to “level the playing field” between barebones non-profits with their better-funded corporate adversaries.

Brother and sister Carter and Courtney Dillard founded FFF with the long-time friend Adam Sugalski.

Carter is director of litigation at the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

FFF board member Summer Smith told O’Dwyer’s that she hopes a firm will commit to the free work by Feb. 10. Deadline for contest proposals is March 24.
