Caring World Communications
CWC was conceived as a business concept just before setting out on a trip around the world. My goal was to make contact with local organizations and individuals in each country we visited and offer assistance with online communications and international exposure.
Upon returning to San Francisco, I realized that the name still worked... Caring World Communications sums up the kinds of clients I most like to work with: nonprofits, socially responsible businesses, and individuals who wish to share their ideas, professional skills and art.
Specializing in website and social media management, CWC can assist you in achieving your online communications goals. Whether you wish to launch a beautiful website, market your services, or build a vibrant online community, Caring World Communications will partner with you to take you where you need to go.
