Here at point, we’re trying to create a culture shift in how people view volunteering. here are a few things you need to know when talking about point, a.k.a our brand guidelines. please follow and respect them.
POINT is reshaping how people view charity. Our goal at POINT is to rebrand “volunteering” into a lifestyle of doing more good that comes from a love of community, and is not guilt-ridden or forced.
PLEASE DO NOT USE TYPICAL ‘VOLUNTEERING LANGUAGE’ THAT CAN MAKE AN EVENT FEEL BORING OR RELIGIOUS (“making a difference,” “less fortunate,” “helping the needy.” INSTEAD, PLEASE USE PHRASES LIKE “do more good,” “empowering communities,” “volunteering on your off days,” or “get involved with something you care about.”
DO NOT USE IMAGERY WITH WORD ART, OF VOLUNTEERS IN MATCHING T-SHIRTS/ANY SHIRTS SAYING “VOLUNTEER” ACROSS THE FRONT, STOCK PHOTO REPRESENTATIONS OF “TEAMWORK,” TREES WITH LEAVES MADE OF HAND PRINTS, OR OTHER TYPICAL ‘VOLUNTEER’ IMAGERY. INSTEAD, IMAGERY SHOULD REFLECT A DIVERSE DEMOGRAPHIC HAVING FUN DOING THINGS TOGETHER. Because that’s what volunteering actually looks like—people of all backgrounds working to improve their community.
