"With deepening financial cutbacks across the board and reduced funding at both governmental and private levels, now more than ever it is important to be able to make a compelling argument to benefactors and others whose support is critical to enabling historical organizations to communicate the "need, importance and value of preserving history - and most importantly, doing it NOW," says Mustard who is also a Writer/Producer/Creative Director and President of the multiple award-winning company, The Bamboo Agency, (www.TheBambooAgency.com), a full-service advertising/marketing/public relations firm.
