LegionThirteen Adds PR Clients

Pinkberry Taps “The Legion” To Support RI-Launches, Nonprofit “Made By Survivors” For Holiday Product Publicity

Providence, RI (August 18, 2011) LegionThirteen, a forward-thinking integrated branding firm, today announced its public relations practice has added two new clients: Pinkberry, the number one tart frozen yogurt brand; and Made By Survivors, a nonprofit organization that sells handmade jewelry from around the world.  Both accounts were won without a review.

LegionThirteen is handling public relations for the launch of the first Pinkberry in Rhode Island, which opened July 9th at Garden City Center in Cranston.  The store is the first of several locations that will be opened in the Ocean State.  The PR program includes publicity efforts with both traditional and social media outlets.

“Pinkberry is not just one of the hottest brands in the food industry, it is one of the hottest brands in America,” said Larry Marchese, LegionThirteen managing partner.  “We are thrilled to have been chosen to handle the launch of Pinkberry in Rhode Island and look forward to continued success as additional locations open up.”

The agency also added “Made By Survivors,” a U.S.-based nonprofit organization that supports woman and girls that have been rescued from slavery and human trafficking around the world by marketing and selling beautiful jewelry, bags, home decor and other gifts that are handmade by the rescued woman.  The products are sold at www.MadeBySurvivors.com.

“Made By Survivors has one of the most touching and compelling stories we have heard in a very long time,” added Marchese.  “The beautiful products it sells make wonderful, and thoughtful gifts, and we are going to help ensure the editors of every holiday gift guide in America knows that.”
