A post over on Papergreat got me to thinking about a find I made over last summer. I don't typically look at posters at sales, but for some reason, I opened this one up when I found it by itself rolled up in the corner of a basement bedroom.
AmeriCorps VISTA members live and serve in some of our nation’s poorest urban and rural areas. With passion, commitment, and hard work, they create or expand programs designed to bring individuals and communities out of poverty.So this was a recruitment poster for their organization. As it turns out, it's a fairly desirable poster. Not really having a use for it, I sold it on eBay a few months ago and made a tidy profit on my 50 cent investment. And who bought it? A plastics company.
Each VISTA member makes a year-long, full-time commitment to serve on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency.
