Local Television, Local Politics, Fun with Local Education and Celebrity Boxing
We kicked off this week by visiting our friends over at DETV promoting the #DoMore24DE campaign on Good Morning Wilmington. Look out for more Mr. Delaware Gives dropping on their station and around as the buzz builds towards Giving Day.
Love was in the air this week and we are loving all of these conversations dripping out with non-profit leaders. We even had the pleasure to talk to County Executive Matt Meyer and Lt. Governor Bethany Hall Long.
As we move ever closer to the launch of the Official Celebrity Boxing Podcast, the team is busy working on post-production of the first few episodes as we schedule more, digging into this highly entertaining and controversial world.
Wrapping things up this week, our friends at Wilmington University got a much deserved dose of fun from the fun dept. with a series of Virtual Quick Plays engaging their departments and bonding their teams.
Thank you for another Inspiring, Creative, and Productive Week!
The team dropped the new single PHILLY PHILLY PHILLY along with the music video in time to hype up for the Big Game, stirring up some press and creating a buzz around the track.
Episode production is underway for the Official Celebrity Boxing Podcast with more on the way. Stay tuned for the launch date.
With Delaware’s Largest Giving Day coming up on March 2nd and 3rd, Mr. Delaware Gives has been busy recording interviews with nonprofit leaders and politicians throughout Delaware in promotion of the big day.
Week 10 – Impactful and Productive. As Bruce Said… “Fulfilling”!
Our team got behind DoMore24DE and the LLS DE Students of the Year campaign this week in a big way, raising a total of 3.2 million dollars. We’re pretty stoked about it! But honestly, we could not have done it without the amazing support of our community. From donations to volunteer hours, everyone came together to help us reach our goal. We are so grateful for all the support! Now let’s keep up the good work and make even more progress toward our goals! Together we can make a difference!
Jackie Murray for Harriet Tubman
To pay tribute to Harriet Tubman, we snuck Jackie Murray, star of the Calling on Harriet initiative, into the Recording Studio to record a few Spirituals. We figured that if anyone could do justice to the capturing the memory of such an inspiring woman, it would be Jackie. And we were right – her voice is absolutely mesmerizing. We even slipped her into the Recording Studio to lay down a few Spirituals while she was in town.
THE CONTENT, LIVE PERFORMANCE, IMPACT PANEL, and MEETING JACKIE were all big hits at the event. The CONTENT was awesome, the LIVE PERFORMANCE blew everyone away, the IMPACT PANEL left a lasting impression, and Calling On Harriet was an unforgettable experience. We’re so grateful to have captured these amazing performances, and we hope that they’ll help keep Harriet’s legacy alive for generations to come. Thank you, Jackie!
Boys And Girls Club Delaware
When it comes to promoting youth programs, the Boys & Girls Club knows that a little TLC goes a long way. That’s why we help them do some much-needed touch-ups on images used in their Youth of the Year Campaign and Student Advocates Program. We were tasked with repairing everything from color balance to cracked pixels, and the results were amazing! Thanks to the team’s hard work, the campaign and program are now looking better than ever. And who knows? Maybe one of us should have won the Youth of the Year award in the past!
Bringing Values to Life
Nick Gianoulis, the Godfather of Fun at The Fun Dept is known for his boundless energy and enthusiasm. He is the driving force behind a new video series called Bringing Values to Life, which will premiere in April. The series is designed to help employees to understand and live the company’s values. In each episode, Nick will visit a different department and interview employees about how they bring the company’s values to life in their work. The series will be full of Nick’s infectious energy and it is sure to inspire employees to live the company’s values every day.
Overall, it was a PRODUCTIVE, IMPACTFUL, and FULFILLING WEEK! Keep being awesome, and we’ll see you next week!
Week 9: Catching Up on 2022, and Prepping for Calling On Harriet
This week was mostly spent in the studio, trying to fix all the mistakes from the previous weeks. It was a lot of hard work, but we’re glad to say that I finally got everything sorted out. Thankfully, the studio is a pretty calm place so it wasn’t too bad. But still, the team is looking forward to next week when we can start working on something new!
Do More, Collect More
The team set up shop for DoMore24DE, a whole day of giving meant to help nonprofits collect more money and engage new people. The team’s goal was to help them reach their goals by providing information and resources about how to best use social media to connect with potential donors.
The campaign runs for 24 hours, and during that time, people can donate as much money as they want. So far, the campaign has raised over a million dollars, and it is still going strong. The campaign is important because it helps to make a difference in the lives of many people in need.
The team did get out at some point, though – to enjoy the beautiful weather this week had to offer and to grab some footage in preparation for next Thursday’s Calling on Harriet preview and celebration. Come on by at 7 and enjoy the show for free!
Another week of creativity, inspiration, and productivity has come to an end. Keep up the good work, and we’ll see you next week!
Week 7 Unites Artists From Atlanta, NYC, Richmond, and Liberia!
From Light to Music
One day, while we were shooting a throne made of light, an idea occurred to us: what if we could create a recording studio that brought together artists from all over the world? We could have musicians from Atlanta, Richmond, VA, and Liberia representing their respective scenes, and the result would be an explosive new sound.
So that’s exactly what we did. We reached out to our contacts in the music industry, and before long, we had assembled a team of talented engineers and producers. We then set up shop in a warehouse in Delaware, and the rest is history.
We’re thrilled to announce that Goodwill of Delaware has signed a new annual contract with our Employee Engagement section! This means that we will be able to continue doing the great work that we do in the community and making a difference in the lives of those we serve. This is a huge victory for the Fun Department, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our team. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Goodwill and making a positive impact in our community.

We’re excited to announce that Esther Graham’s TEDx Talk has been approved and will be presented at TEDx Trinidad. DoMore24DE has been hard at work promoting and developing material for the campaign, and we’re grateful for your support. Backtrack Vocals, we appreciate your time and effort. We hope you’ll join us for the event and continue to support our work in the future. Thank you!
