Sharon Kunkel, president of Wordslinger Marketing & PR, recently earned national recognition for her agency’s work on the Goodwill Manasota “Donate Your Ex’s Stuff” campaign, receiving an Honorable Mention in the PR Daily Nonprofit PR Awards in the “Advocacy or Awareness” category. The campaign – executed in coordination with Goodwill Manasota’s marketing team, spearheaded by vice president Veronica Brandon Miller – was launched in February to increase donations to Goodwill and swiftly went viral, earning coverage in prominent outlets worldwide and even making it into a monologue by Jimmy Kimmel.
