Pregnancy Resources Centre

Pregnancy Resources Centre

BACKGROUND

The Barrie Pregnancy Resource Centre opened in December 2006 to provide support and assistance to anyone facing unplanned pregnancy or pregnancy related crisis. BPRC is a non-profit, charitable organization, supported by individuals, businesses and churches.

BPRC is a Christian organization. We are absolutely convinced that there is a God … and that people matter to God. Your life is so precious to Him. You might never have thought about God or why you exist. But sometimes facing a difficult situation causes people to think about spiritual questions. If you would like to find out more about God’s care for your life and situation, we are always happy to share. Please know that although we are happy to talk about spiritual matters, there is no pressure or expectation to do so. Our focus is caring for you.

Re-shaping a new narrative for a great company

BACKGROUND

GEEP offers solutions to manage the full life cycle of IT assets. We guarantee our customers data security, maximum value recovery and environmentally safe practices.

What we did…
We were hired to visualize and communicate the amazing opportunities there are when working for GEEP. They struggled with some bad press due to some minor issues and needed to get out into the public with the great things they are doing. We launched with the WORK HARD/LIVE LIFE campaign featuring GEEP employees expressing the balance they find working there. With some amazing PR support from our partners, Catalyst, Geep realize great success in both the positive press and great attendance for the first job fair of the season.

We’ve brought a delicious idea to life.

BACKGROUND

Sweet Flour Bake Shop opened their doors in 2009 to become the world’s first 2-minute custom cookie shop, and every day since they’ve been wowing customers with their one-of-a-kind interactive cookie experience. With over 15,000 combinations to taste, your ultimate cookie is out there. Savour it in our cozy café with a glass of cold organic milk or a creamy latte made with locally roasted organic coffee. It’s the perfect relaxing moment, wrapped up in a delicious fresh baked cookie.

How we helped

In 2009, Kim Gans had an idea for a shop which offered customized cookies, freshly-baked in two minutes. She needed a company to help reach her audience with that delicious message. Through Rhubarb’s web design, print, in-store marketing and partnership with our associates at Digital Giants, we introduced Sweet Flour to the world.

Since then we have worked with Kim and her team to design new packaging, evolve the website with seasonal promotions, launch commerce capabilities and search engine marketing campaigns.

BACKGROUND

The Kempenfelt Community Players (KCP) is a community theatre group that has been performing in Barrie and the surrounding area for over 35 years. They are made up of enthusiastic members who have a love for live theatre. New members are always welcome, both onstage and behind the scenes.  We were approached by KCP in 2007 to become one of their media sponsors. Knowing the quality of the work they produce and the opportunities they provide for community members of all ages, we were happy to support them with an updated logo, website and ongoing marketing materials.

From the time Chad Ballantyne opened Rhubarb Media in 2006, his company has been one of the most active and creative supporters of Cultural Development in Barrie. I have had the pleasure of working with Chad and his artistic team since they began moulding and re-shaping Kempenfelt Community Players’ image in all pieces of print work. Over the last 9 years Rhubarb Media has provided in-kind work to produce Season Subscriptions, posters, flyers, banners, a new logo, and beautiful theatre programs that improve our image and achieve a professional look that we could never manage on our own. But this is just a fraction of the support that Rhubarb Media provides to the Cultural growth in Barrie.

In my opinion, the in-kind support demonstrated by Rhubarb Media is one-of-a-kind in the city of Barrie (exceeding 100K and growing!). As owner, Chad is a person who lives and acts on his beliefs that culture is the heart to any city. If there is a meeting about cultural growth in Barrie, I can guarantee that he is there. If there is a council meeting where cultural spending is going to be discussed, you’ll find him there.

Chad is a person who acts on his values; he is generous with his time and talents supporting other groups who can then better share their artistic works.

Our support has helped feed families

Background

The Barrie Food Bank’s mission is: to provide temporary food relief to individuals and families of our community who are in need, and to serve as a resource to guide them along the road to self-sufficiency. Their policies are designed to achieve this mandate. To this end they seek to encourage self-sufficiency. In their service of those who come to them for assistance, they strive to demonstrate compassion and respect for their dignity, and to serve as a source of encouragement.

How we served

In 2011, Barrie Food Bank realized they could better achieve their goals by better communicating with their supporters. Up until then, their interactions had been through traditional channels like radio and newspapers. Rhubarb Media sponsored logo, website and other design needs for Barrie Food Bank, which helped the Food Bank increase funding exponentially. This improved the Food Bank’s ability to meet the 48% increase in usage over the past two years, with more than 32,000 families being served in 2013. The immediate positive impact of families being fed will also have an immeasurable impact on how well these families can function and then give back to the community in the long-term.
