Los Angeles, CA (September 9, 2013) – Delta Air Lines employees are rolling up their sleeves to renovate another home with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles (HFH GLA) as part of a multi-build volunteer effort.

This year Delta Air Lines employees will help to completely rehabilitate a Spanish style home located in North Long Beach. Renovation kicks off Thursday, September 12 and is expected to be complete by the dedication, which is scheduled for October 30th.

We work with a lot of non-profits and so we understand how helpful a PSA is for your organization and how much more powerful it is with a celebrity attached to it. Therefore, you should always be ready to film. We carry our Kodak Play Touch with us all the time in case an opportunity arises. If nothing else, a smart phone will always work in a pinch! Earlier this month, we were on site with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles for their National Women Build event in Long Beach and Holly Robinson Peete was the spokesperson. So, as we were interviewing her for a long form video about the event, we seized the opportunity to capture a short video with her talking about why she supports Habitat for Humanity. A little bit of editing later and voila, a PSA!
And P.S. Holly is awesome – we had some fun on Vine that day – you can watch it here.

It is back to school time, which also means that many college students are starting internships. In fact, I was inspired to write this post because we have a potential intern coming in to interview today!
Starfish PR is a small (but mighty) operation, so we get our own coffee and do our own grunt work. While our interns should not expect to be running the company by the end of the week, they should expect to jump in and do some real PR work!
We love for our interns to share their specific interests and internship goals with us. That way we can identify assignments and upcoming events that will get them excited about the field of PR. Our goal is to inspire our interns, not crush them!
Another important part of the first week, is having our interns become familiar with our clients. We ask them to visit our clients’ websites, blogs, facebook and twitter accounts and take notes, as well as ask questions.
