I've uploaded two different graphic directions: One is a tree (ignore the birds).
The other is my badly drawn idea: BeyondCheckbookCharity with a curve above, breaking into stars.
The Star Image:
We like this because it’s simple. We like the idea of one thing (the line) becoming many (the stars).
The Tree Image (ignore the bird):
Tree represents growth, life, sustainability
Roots represent community, generations (passing on values to children) and also financial stability
Image is strong on its own
What we Don’t Like:
Please, no clichés: no dollar signs, money trees, hands holding a tree, hands holding each other, hands of any kind, people surrounding a globe – you get the picture.
What We Do Like:
Surprises! Please have fun with this. This is our first time working with graphic designers in this way. We’re really excited to see what comes in!
