Brooklyn Org is a platform and partner for local philanthropy, bringing together Brooklynites to become champions for change in our communities.

Each year, Brooklyn Org’s community invests millions of dollars in nonprofits around the borough working across every issue to help our neighbors thrive.

This May and June, we’re rolling out our first PSA campaign — created by our pro bono partners at Mother New York — with an invitation to all Brooklynites to back change right in their own backyards.

Brooklyn Org gives everyone a seat at the table, but you can’t know you’ve got a seat unless you’ve been invited. The Show Brooklyn Some Love campaign is our invitation to every Brooklynite to join us, donate, and spark change. Dr. Jocelynne Rainey, Brooklyn Org President & CEO

The “Show Brooklyn Some Love” campaign launched on Saturday, May 18th at the New York Liberty’s home opener at the Barclays Center, where it will be featured until June.

Starting in June, ads can be seen on buses, billboards, and guerilla posters throughout the borough, as well as street pole banners in Downtown Brooklyn and DUMBO and at City Point. The centerpiece of the campaign is a complete takeover of the Bedford Avenue station in Williamsburg, a neighborhood that stands at the junction of old and new Brooklyn.

If you see the campaign, make sure to take a picture and tag us at @bklynorg!
