In May 2016, Linda was invited to the first annual Impact100 Metro Detroit Awards Banquet and was so impressed, she called her husband and business partner, Bill, afterward to tell him she wanted to join the group of compassionate, inspiring women. Impact100 Metro Detroit is one chapter of many that operate on a simple and proven strategy: 100 or more women agree to contribute $1,000 each to a $100,000 grant. We then participate in the grant selection process, developing our knowledge and leadership, and investing in nonprofits in the local community.

Linda’s membership and volunteering to serve on the Marketing and PR committee offered the Identity Creative team an unexpected opportunity to make a significant impact in the metro Detroit¬†area. As corporate sponsors, Identity Creative designed the Impact100 Metro Detroit website, with on-going graphic design, and print support. Business turn-around expert, Camille Jayne, chair of the Marketing Committee, worked tirelessly to pull together a cable program, Impact100 Metro Detroit TV, where charitable organizations and sponsors can be spotlighted.
