25 years. More than six presidential terms, over 100 space missions and The Tonight Show is on its third host. In that same time, G/L has worked with over 200 clients both locally and nationally. That’s 9,131 days, countless cups of coffee and late-nighters, creating great work that has made a difference in our clients business and the brands they represent.

We live by our mantra “Make it Mean Something”.  But we discovered that we’re not alone in embracing these four simple words. Numerous non-profit organizations across St. Louis selflessly donate their time, money and energy to make our community better.

 

And that’s what its all about – doing all that we can to be better.

We invite you to follow along as each member of the G/L team identifies a non-profit that is Making It Mean Something.  Visit our blog, join us in volunteering, follow the hashtag #GLSTL25.  Discover how these organizations are having a positive impact, how you can be a part of it, and how we can celebrate all that’s good in St. Louis.
