Sticker of Church Logo Embodies The Spirit of Community

JourneyChurch

In 2005 a journey for 16 people sitting in a living room in northwest San Antonio began.  They wanted to welcome people into a community and church that did not care about denominations.  What they cared about was helping people with a friendly community and to spread the word of the New Testament and discover God’s purposes.

In addition to their sermons, Journey Church also provides various Life Groups for people to partake in socially to help them feel like a more cohesive community.  These groups are usually held in a similar place to where Journey Church started; someone’s living room.

With two simple arches converging into one over the name of Journey Church on their sticker we see simplicity and partnership.  StickerGiant is proud to help Journey Church reach out with these beautiful simple stickers and let you know you’re not alone on your journey.

"Do What You Love, and Help Along The Way.…” —STICKER Story Julie Silva, Waves For Water


Waves4Water Sticker Story






This week StickerGiant features a noteworthy non-profit organization making waves to improve the global water filtration deficit. Waves for Water works with world leaders to provide clean water to communities around the world who frequently lack the resources needed to maintain clean water sources.

Waves for Water was started by pro surfer John Rose following an unexpected run-in with an earthquake off the coast of Bali during surf trip. Rose happened to be en route delivering 10 water filters to Bali, and after finding himself in the midst of a dyer water crisis, he ultimately began distributing the equipment to rescue workers and communities in his immediate area.

John’s interest in philanthropic pursuits were influenced much earlier.  His father Jack Rose, who started non-profit “Rain Catcher” has dedicated himself to teaching villages in Africa how to filter rainwater for drinking. So when John spotted the need for more global water resources, it's no surprise that he turned to his father for collaboration.

Probably the most interesting tidbit we learned from the interview was that Waves for Water uses stickers in 21 countries to label 5 gallon buckets to provide water treatment solutions.  The stickers create consistent brand awareness for

What advice would you give to a company thinking about using stickers as a marketing tactic to wow their fans. What has worked for you, what hasn’t, etc?: 

The stickers we use help us establish our brand and are now recognizable to many.

List some ways that fans can support your brand to encourage growth apart from buying your product or service?:

Sharing the word, visiting our website (wavesforwater.org), understanding that 1 in 6 people in this world still don't have access to clean drinking water, or becoming a Clean Water Courier when you travel.

We believe that everyone can "Do What You Love, and Help Along The Way"

WordCamp Phoenix

WordCampPhoenix


This month StickerGiant is proud to be sponsoring yet another WordCamp Phoenix and we are once again honored to be celebrating the creative community that surrounds WordPress. The weekend celebration includes a variety of workshops, presentations, parties and other growth-oriented events for Wordpress junkies.

Held January 17-19 from Chandler, Arizona WordCamp Phoenix provides high-quality training around the fastest growing and most widely used web content management system — WordPress. WordPress is not only a key technology tool, it also attracts a vibrant business community that enjoys the platforms under-friendly nature. Even if you can't make it to the event in Arizona, it's worth visiting the regular Wordcamp wiki to see if a camp is happening near you.

The three-day weekend event will provide a space for the Arizona community members to gather in sunny Downtown Chandler. Plus…you can't beat the sunny January weather. Attendees will help to showcase the diversity of the local community whilst learning from each other. This event is great for anyone who uses or creates for WordPress; small business owners, bloggers, designers, developers or anyone else who has an interest in WordPress.



WordCamp Phoenix and other WordCamp events are hosted as a non-profit collaboration. They are led by a diverse group of volunteers, many of them local influencers. This conference brings together technology professionals, enthusiasts, vendors and customers to connect with each other and learn about WordPress. This event is made possible with the support and expertise of the local Phoenix WordPress community, national sponsors, and amazing speakers who lend their time and talents and a large pool of volunteers and their generous support.

But don't let distance keep you from experiencing the vibrant tech savvy community that makes WordCamps like Phoenix such a success. Be sure to check out their organizer profiles in order to connect with influencers from afar at the handles listed below:
