LOVE, Litzky

The LOVE, Litzky Grant is a bi-annual program designed to support entrepreneurs and small businesses that improve the lives of kids and families.

LOVE, Litzky, an acronym for Lifting Outstanding Voices & Endeavors, spotlights a specific and timely issue that our team is passionate about, and awards a recipient with a $25,000 grant to fund the strategy, planning, and execution of a 3-month PR campaign.

For its commitment to ensuring that all children enjoy the developmental advantages of inclusion, imagination, and child-led play, PunkinFutz was selected as the first-ever LOVE, Litzky recipient.

“PunkinFutz was incredibly fortunate to be the first recipient of the Love, Litzky Grant, which provided us with a spectacular PR campaign for the launch of our Sesame Street back-to-school line at JCPenney.  While the stated value of the grant was $25,000, the true value was far greater.  The major media exposure LPR generated for us was both stunning and self-reinforcing, as each placement led to several more.  Exposure of this quality is priceless for a small company like PunkinFutz and impossible to generate on our own.  Finally, our dedicated LPR team was the reason our campaign was so successful.  They were fully committed to our company and its mission.  We were treated as a valued account, receiving personalized attention, quickly understood and digested information, detailed instructions and excellent reporting.” 

– Lisa Radcliffe, founder/CEO, PunkinFutz 

Surprise Powerz was selected as the most recent LOVE, Litzky recipient for its commitment to inspire girls to take on the world with confidence by engaging them in STEM learning and equipping them with critical skills from a young age.

“Litzky Public Relations didn’t just back Surprise Powerz with a $25,000 grant; they joined our journey and turned dreams into reality. Their support got us into The Toy Insider’s Holiday Gift Guide, Country Living, The Spruce, we even became a NAPPA award winner —a triumph we shared with the world. When CBS Mornings called, Litzky wasn’t just about business; they were family. They coached me through interview questions, helped me pick out the perfect outfit, and stood by my side literally from bringing the dolls to the studio to taking pictures with Gayle King. Entrepreneurship can feel lonely and tough at times, but with Litzky there, you have family. They make this experience feel like a shared adventure. Grateful to Litzky for not just nailing it at PR, but for being great friends for life.”
