Indianapolis - TrendyMinds, an Indianapolis-based full-service advertising

agency and public relations firm, is celebrating its 15th anniversary by

giving local non-profits quite the party favor; twelve (12) businesses will

receive a total of $150,000 worth of in-kind marketing, branding,

interactive, public relations, advertising and promotional services in 2010.

TrendyMinds accepted applications through their website and chose the

winning organizations based on need, services desired, and interest from the

staff. The winning organizations are:

* Carmel Symphony Orchestra

* Fishers Arts Council

* IndyHub

* International Kidney Stone Institute

* Junior Achievement Intellectual Army

* King Park Area Development Corporation

* La Plaza

* Madame Walker Theatre Center

"I feel incredibly lucky to be celebrating our fifteenth year in business,"

says Trevor Yager, founder and principal of TrendyMinds. "We've had and

continue to have amazing clients, fantastic results and truly talented

employees. We felt it was our duty to give something substantive back to the

community as a way of sharing the wealth, so to speak."

TrendyMinds has a long-standing tradition of donating its services to

charitable organizations and nonprofits. In 2009 the agency awarded $50,000

to eight nonprofits: Athenaeum Foundation, Carmel Symphony Orchestra,

Fatherless Foundation, FIDO (Friends of Indianapolis Dogs Outside), IndyHub,

King Park Area Development Corporation, A Little Wiggle Room and The Polis

Center at IUPUI. Other organizations that have received in-kind work in

previous years include Methodist Health Foundation, Gleaners Food Bank, and

the American Cabaret Theatre.

"We know that 2010 will likely continue to be a hard year for many business

so we feel fortunate that we're in a position to give away this amount of

work," says Vicki Bohlsen, principal. "These deserving organizations do so

much good in the community, so I'm thrilled we can put our professional

expertise to use and help them achieve their goals."

In addition to donating $150,000 worth of agency work, TrendyMinds will

celebrate its 15th anniversary with four special events to be held

throughout 2010 and will premiere a new promotional campaign.
