OVERLAND PARK, KS (JUNE 27, 2017) Intouch Solutions, a marketing agency serving the pharmaceutical industry, proudly announces its pro-bono partnership with the JDRF Kansas City Chapter (JDRF-KC), the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.

Intouch created a new-and-improved suite of marketing materials for JDRF-KC, including a customizable tri-fold brochure, an informational video, Word templates, social media best practices and an image library. These materials will help JDRF-KC raise awareness, achieve its goal of “turning type one into type none,” and encourage people in Kansas City to donate their time and money to the cause.

“We’re proud to work with JDRF-KC to revamp their marketing materials,” said Faruk Capan, CEO of Intouch Solutions. “As a company, we’re dedicated to sharing our expertise and creating meaningful and impactful solutions for the community. JDRF-KC is a prime example of an organization that makes a difference to many, and we’re proud to be part of that story.”

Intouch’s partnership with JDRF-KC was born from Intouch Solutions’ Account Director Andy Brown’s desire to bring awareness to T1D in Kansas City, a disease that impacts him personally. Brown and Meredith Kusky, Development Manager at JDRF International, worked together to identify JDRF-KC’s need to localize its marketing materials to reach its goals.

“Knowing that our team is working with a local organization and helping them raise funds for a great cause right here in Kansas City, and one that affects me personally, is a wonderful feeling!” said Brown. “Meredith Kusky, De White and the entire JDRF-KC team have been amazing partners.”

“Working with Intouch Solutions not only gave us incredible marketing materials to use to engage our type 1 diabetes (T1D) community, but they gave us new insight of how to grow awareness of T1D and its hardships throughout Kansas City. Intouch Solutions individualized our chapter on a new level. I think Kansas City will recognize the effort they gave to create something special for our local JDRF family. Their team exuded creativity and leadership. We count ourselves lucky to have worked with them, and we hope this is just the beginning of an already wonderful partnership.” – Meredith Kusky, Development Manager, JDRF-KC

As part of Intouch’s #ALLin speaker series, Kusky and a T1D patient recently spoke to Intouch Solutions to share what it’s like to live with the disease. Insights from this lecture, as well as others in the series, help Intouch connect the dots between its everyday work and the people affected by that work.
