Springboard Design Group Announces New Client Win

Springboard Design Group Announces New Client Win










Apex, NC (PRWEB) November 19, 2004

Springboard Design Group, a graphic design and brand communications company specializing in serving entrepreneurs and forward-thinking companies of all sizes, announced today that it has signed a deal with the Salvation Army of Wake County to develop a new Web site for the nonprofit organization.

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the Universal Christian Church. The Salvation Army of Wake County has supported local people in need without discrimination ever since Major Jones Inman, the founder of the local chapter, visited Raleigh to hold his first meeting for 500 prisoners at the state penitentiary in 1887. The Raleigh Chapter of the Salvation Army includes Welfare offices, a Community Center, a Family Store and a Worship Center, as well as Social Services and Disaster Response Services.

Amanda McGovern, director of development for the Salvation Army of Wake County, says Springboard Design Group was selected over other graphic design companies from the Research Triangle Park area for its ability to help establish a focused, effective online image that reflects the overall values and mission of the organization.

“Working with a company of Springboard Design Group’s caliber is essential in our plan for growth,” says McGovern says. “They are not only designing a new Web site for us, they are teaching us how to update the site and change its content to fit our needs over time. This was key in our selection of a graphic design company. As a nonprofit organization, our budget is very focused and we cannot afford to pay high hourly rates for miniscule site changes as the need arises. We’re very excited to be able to work with such a creative, innovative and personable resource.”

Springboard Design Group Principle Ben Woodward says it is an honor to be selected by the Salvation Army of Wake County, one of the most trusted names in philanthropy, both locally and around the world.

“We are excited about this opportunity to help this great organization improve its online presence,” Woodward says. “This Web site design agreement is a testament to our ability to develop creative, effective communications strategies that help companies and nonprofits of all sizes achieve their marketing goals.”

RALLEY Announces Publication of 2006 William Morris Stained Glass Wall Calendar.

RALLEY Announces Publication of 2006 William Morris Stained Glass Wall Calendar.










Verona, NJ (PRWEB) November 26, 2005

RALLEY announced the publication of a unique wall calendar based on a detailed photographic study of an important but relatively obscure stained glass window by the William Morris Company.

The Vanderpoel Memorial Window in Trinity Episcopal Church, Saugerties, New York was installed in 1874 and is the first stained glass commission undertaken by the William Morris Company for an American client.

When announcing the launch Neil Ralley explained why he had chosen to concentrate on just one window for the calendar. “The 15 panels which make up this window are really a microcosm of the work of Morris and his associates in the 1860’s and 1870’s. There are designs by Edward Burne-Jones, Ford Madox Brown and William Morris himself and the subjects include the Birth, Baptism, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ. These photographs are incredibly detailed and the colors are exquisite, it is a must-have for any serious student of Morris stained glass. Although it is being produced as a calendar we envision that people will keep it well beyond December of 2006”

William Morris (1834-96) was highly influential in the birth and development of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Multi-faceted and multi-talented he was a true renaissance man of the Victorian era. When he died at the age of 62 his doctor recorded the cause of death as being “simply being William Morris and doing more work than most 10 men”

The calendar may be seen and purchased at (http://www.stainedglassphotography.com/Calendars)

and (http://www.cafepress.com/ralley).

About Neil Ralley:

Ralley created and launched the website Stained Glass Photography (http://www.stainedglassphotography.com) in 2002 to provide free access to his photographs of vintage stained glass. The site became a Yahoo ‘Pick of the Day’ barely a month after it was launched and has received well over a million page views. Ralley strongly believes that stained glass represents an important part of America’s artistic heritage which is at risk and that it should be properly documented as well as being preserved for future generations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Vocus provides non-GAAP measures for revenue, income from operations, net income, diluted net income per share and free cash flow as supplemental information.

We define non-GAAP revenue as GAAP revenue adjusted for the impact of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue related to purchase accounting. Management believes the adjustment is useful to investors as a more accurate measure of our ongoing performance from the acquisitions.

We define non-GAAP income from operations as GAAP income from operations including the impact of non-GAAP revenue and excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration and acquisition related expenses.

We define non-GAAP net income as GAAP net income including the impact of non-GAAP revenue and excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, fair value adjustments to contingent consideration including the effect of foreign currencies and acquisition related expenses.

Stock-based compensation included in our GAAP financial results relates to stock option and restricted stock awards. Companies record stock-based compensation by applying varying valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions to different types of equity awards. Amortization of acquired intangible assets included in our GAAP financial results consists of amortization of non-compete agreements, trade names, purchased technology and customer relationships that are not expected to be replaced when fully amortized, as a depreciable tangible asset might. Amortization expense can vary from period to period due to the timing and size of our acquisitions. Our GAAP financial results include adjustments to the fair value of contingent consideration for acquisition earn-outs as of each reporting date from the fair value recorded on the acquisition date. Acquisition related expenses included in our GAAP general and administrative costs consist of legal, accounting and other professional fees incurred during the reporting period in connection with our acquired businesses. Management believes these non-GAAP measures allow management and investors to make meaningful comparisons between our operating results and those of the other companies, as well as provide a consistent comparison of our relative historical financial performance.

We define free cash flow as cash flow from operations less net capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs plus the excess tax benefits from equity awards. Management considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure which provides useful information to management and investors regarding our ability to generate cash from operations that is available for acquisitions and other investments. Our definition of free cash flow may be different from definitions used by other companies.

Management uses non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow to evaluate operating performance, determine incentive compensation and to prepare operating budgets and determine the appropriate levels of capital investments. However, management believes that non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and free cash flow are subject to material limitations since they may not be indicative of ongoing operating results. Management compensates for the limitations in the use of non-GAAP measures by also utilizing GAAP financial measures and by providing investors with a detailed reconciliation between our GAAP and non-GAAP financial results. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in our SEC filings.

MyChristianSupply.com Announces Re-Launch & New Blog

MyChristianSupply.com Announces Re-Launch & New Blog











Grand Junction, CO (PRWEB) June 28, 2009

Originally debuting in the fall of 2008, My Christian Supply has been re-launched recently with a new design and a new blog. The web store’s founder sat down to talk about his faith in God and its relation to commerce.

“My two big passions are Christianity and fly fishing,” laughed Larry Ball. “I may not be a preacher, but I can try to help other Christians.”

Ball is the proprietor of http://www.MyChristianSupply.com, a website that began as a supply store that featured religious-themed gifts and Bibles. Ball got the idea to start the web store when a Christian supply store in his town went out of business.

The site originally launched in September 2008 and has recently undergone a facelift.

Ball’s rehash of the website has allowed for a user-friendly interface. While building up his new catalog, Ball has started with the essentials such as various types of Bibles (including the King James and New American Standard versions), and several Christian and Jewish gifts.

Along with the My Christian Supply’s re-launch, Ball is currently looking to build his catalog further, he’s also added links for sites that specialize in family-friendly Christian movies.

With the changes Ball has in store for his web venture, he’s also planning on donating profits from the site to his church.

Additionally, Ball has added a new informational blog to accompany his site.

“It’s a great way to communicate with other people,” Ball said of http://www.ChristianStoreBlog.com.

As the site continues to rebuild itself and gain traction, Ball wants to share his love of the Lord with others.

“I really like studying the Bible and the word of God,” he said. “I’m now in my twilight years and I want to do something that is helpful and fulfilling. I think that this is a good place to start.”

MyChristianSupply.com is a part of LBJ Marketing and is owned and operated by Larry Ball.

Easy-Fundraising-Ideas.com Announces New “Go Green Unique Fundraising” Program



Mansfield, Texas (PRWEB) June 24, 2008

The “Go Green Unique Fundraising” program was officially launched this week by Easy Fundraising Ideas – the fastest growing internet-based fundraising company in the country.

Now schools, sports teams, church groups, and non-profit organizations looking for newer, healthier, more earth friendly fundraising ideas can take advantage of one of the hottest new trends in fundraising today.

“Everywhere you turn lately people are talking about ‘going green’. That’s why our newest and most unique fundraising line makes so much sense for every group,” said Howard Gottlieb, President of Easy Fundraising Ideas. “Now schools, churches, bands, charities & sports fundraisers can all benefit from the addition of this creative and unique fundraising program!”

The Go Green Fundraising product line consists of earthly friendly items, healthy foods and organic products. The three most popular items in the program are small evergreen trees that are actually shipped in plastic tubes. The trees come with everything people need to plant their trees and watch them grow. Other items in the program include reusable shopping bags and coolers, organic breads and desserts, healthy snacks, flower bulbs and organic lip balm and lotions.

Go Green Fundraisers work like many of the other brochure fundraising programs offered by Easy Fundraising Ideas. The more items you sell the higher your profit percentage on each item sold.

With up to 55% profit margins and small minimum order sizes, this program is designed to be the optimal choice for groups of all ages and sizes.
