RAZR Marketing was recently honored with a Communitas Award for donating over 1,130 hours of community service to various organizations in 2011.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 11, 2012
RAZR Marketing announced today that it was recently recognized with a Communitas Award for leadership in community service. The award is an international effort to recognize the spirit of people helping people—communitas is Latin for people coming together for the good of a community.
A primary reason RAZR Marketing was recognized for the award is its company policy that grants every employee one week of paid vacation (40 hours in addition to their standard vacation time) each year to use on philanthropic activities. In 2011 alone, RAZR employees donated 1,130 hours to various philanthropic causes.
"By recognizing individuals, organizations and companies for their volunteerism and socially responsible business practices, we are hoping to not only bring attention to great programs, but are working with community minded leaders to make the spirit of communitas an essential element of every business," said Ed Dalheim, executive director of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals.
RAZR employees use the philanthropic time they were recognized for in various ways. Some employees enjoy working with children in need, while others host successful fundraisers, serve on nonprofit boards, or travel across the globe to spend time doing outreach. Although RAZR is a company of just over 30 employees, the philanthropic efforts of the team have had a widespread impact.
“All of us at RAZR are incredibly proud of the philanthropic work we do,” said RAZR Marketing CEO Darren Nauss. “It is extremely rewarding to have an opportunity to make a difference in the community as individuals and as an organization.”
The Communitas Awards are an outgrowth of the pro bono recognition program of the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (http://www.amcpros.com), a group that honors creative achievement and fosters partnerships with charities and community organizations. Communitas nominees are evaluated based on the extent and effectiveness of their programs. A complete list of winners can be found on the Communitas website at http://www.communitasawards.com.
