Wonderful Machine featured our friend and photographer Terri Glanger’s work on the agency’s St. Jude Campaign for Chili’s. As Terri says, “I love when it’s a team effort, and I feel like the warmth of the whole team made the kids feel as comfortable as any child could.”
No need to grab the tissues; the work will put a smile on your face, as it celebrates the joy and optimism the kids bring to everyone around them.
The greatest gift is being able to give back. We ended the year clocking some hours prepping and serving lunch for patrons of Dallas’ homeless outreach center (and our downtown neighbors) The Stewpot. The Stewpot is the sole meal provider of The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, which serves 1,000 meals a day, seven days a week, to homeless and underprivileged Dallas residents.

For the sixth consecutive year, Johnson & Sekin produced a suite of creative for Meat Fight, a non-profit organization whose various BBQ competitions raise money to fight Multiple Sclerosis. Each year’s events get bigger, better and more elaborate, and 2019 was no exception, with the meaty main event raising more than $225,000 for people living with MS.
The infamous entity began in 2010 after founder Alice Laussade’s brother was diagnosed with MS. Since 2010, Meat Fight has donated over $1.7 million to the National MS Society.
It was another successful year for Fuzzy’s Chips In™: a charitable initiative Johnson & Sekin created for Fuzzy’s Taco Shop with the goal of helping put an end to childhood hunger. Throughout the month of September, customers who donated $2 to No Kid Hungry received a coupon for free Chips & Queso. This year, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop helped connect over 1 million meals to hungry kids in America.
