Annual Week of Giving Kicks Off with New Twists
More From


At LPK, we have a history of coming together to improve our communities across the globe. Contributing our time, talent and monetary support to the arts, the environment and those in need ensures that the choices we make today have an impact beyond tomorrow.

While these efforts are ongoing, we set aside one week each year to focus our collective energy and demonstrate a unified commitment to causes greater than our own. We call it LPK Gives Back, and it’s a favorite time of year around here—a time for us to roll up our sleeves and truly connect with our colleagues, all in the spirit of giving.

This year, we’ve kicked things up a notch, adding to our traditional community service activities a 24-hour pro bono design blitz. This Thursday, two teams of LPK creatives will work around the clock to deliver everything from brand strategy and marketing collateral to radio and TV advertising for two Cincinnati nonprofits, Boys Hope Girls Hope and The Dragonfly Foundation.

We’ve also upped the fun factor this year by introducing an element of competition to the week, designing and selling T-shirts for charity. The designs pay homage to the Cincinnati hometown of LPK’s global headquarters, and will be available for purchase this week only. Proceeds from each sale will go to the charity of the purchaser’s choice: Big Brothers Big Sisters, International Justice Mission, Make-A-Wish Foundation or World Resources Institute. So please, check out the shirts, make a purchase and spread the word to help raise money for some truly great causes.

We can’t wait to get started! Take a look at the schedule below and be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram this week to see how we’re not just giving back, but also enabling the extraordinary in our people and the communities we share.
