Crowley Webb Asks Community to “Shine Some Light” on Domestic Violence

Crowley Webb Asks Community to “Shine Some Light” on Domestic Violence

BUFFALO, NY – Crowley Webb, a full-service marketing communications agency in Buffalo, NY, today mailed holiday cards to hundreds of friends, family, and clients. But the cards include more than the usual well wishes. There’s a message that encourages recipients to “Shine Some Light” to generate awareness for domestic violence.

The card itself features a single, burning candle. And similar glowing light can be seen from Crowley Webb’s office windows this season.

“A candle in a window has served as a sign of welcome to others for centuries,” said Dave Buck, President, Crowley Webb. “Seen from a distance and shining in good times and bad, it is a sign of friendship and family, warmth and welcoming. That’s what inspired us.”
