The Problem
The Burgh Bears are a non-profit social group that conducts charitable
fundraising for their local community in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In recent
years the organization’s membership is decreasing, and with the decrease the
Burg Bears’ charitable support to the community is shrinking.
Compiling the group’s overall experience with non-profit organizations,
advertising, design, and marketing yields many years of individual professional
experience, as well as loyalty to the organization. The Burgh Bears desire
growth and an increase in charitable donations, but at this point it is apparent
that the group is all voluntary.
Specific Problem
The Burgh Bears membership is gradually diminishing and their funds are
dwindling. The reasons for this dynamic and possible solutions to the dilemma
need to be explored, and facilitating creative thinking to address the challenge
would be very useful.

Contacting the Participants
Electronic Contact
Email is used to contact the group participants (Figure 2) to explain the
activity, to describe the role of the facilitator, and to explain the procedure
and consent issues. Also, this email is used to inquire about general
willingness of participation, to list what information is required, and to
proceed to consent.
Figure 8. Email. Author’s image.
6
Participant Consent
Electronic Consent
Electronic consent is used as an online consent form that can be
electronically sent to group participants through email, text, message, or
other formats that support hypermedia. The consent form explains the
process, the recording, and records the participants agreement electronically.

Scheduling of Warm-Up Activity
Electronic Scheduling
Electronic scheduling is used to simplify the process of scheduling times for
the Warm-Up and Visual-Storytelling Activities. Potential dates are entered
into an online form, a link is sent to group participants, and they simply enter
their name and select dates and times for which they are available.

Documentation Warm-Up Activity
Overview
As defined in the Warm-Up Activity Plan, the Warm-Up is an icebreaker that
encourages participants to use creative thinking and drawing to foster creative
exploration.
An online session is made to facilitate the Warm-Up Activity Plan, and a brief
explanation of the technology and interface is provided. At this point the
facilitator provides an introduction to the activity, explains the time that would
be required, and asks if their are any questions.

Documentation Warm-Up Activity
Three Words Icebreaker
The group participants are asked to write down three words that best describe
a group activity, fund-raiser, or charity event in which they have participated.
Results
Despite the different words and events that participants describe, enjoyment
or fun were the similar concepts and emotions that people described. Total
results were the following:
•	 Activity
•	 Awareness
•	 Community
•	 Easy
•	 Engaging
•	 Fun
•	 Inviting
•	 Outdoors
•	 People
•	 Proceeds
•	 Work

Documentation Warm-Up Activity
Never-Never Drawing
The group participants are asked to think about and visualize a negative
instance that they have experienced when participating in a group, with a
fund-raiser, or at a group participation event (and one that they would not
want to see again).
Results
Many experiences were expressed through drawing, words, or a combination
of both. Most of the participant’s drawings were similar – with a single figure
standing outside a group of figures – and were attributed to:
•	 Cliquishness
•	 Negativity
•	 Workload Distribution
•	 Being Singled-Out
•	 Snobbery
Figures 17–21. Never-Never Drawing participant responses. Author’s images.

The participants are then asked to write or draw one thing in each of those
squares that they would like to see happen with their organization, possibly a
goal that can be achieved, or something great that the organization could do.
Results
•	 Achieve excitement
•	 Become more welcoming and friendly
•	 Encourage members
•	 Engage the community/branding
•	 Have a sense of community
•	 Meet new people, promote, and connect
•	 Name recognition/marketing
•	 Next generation/younger members

Individual Comments
What I expected from this workshop:
•	 To grow the organization
•	 to get a better understanding of how a website that will be beneficial to
the Burgh Bears club
•	 come up with new ideas and views for change
•	 I was uncertain as to expectations, I knew that this would involve ways to
make the group and website better.
What I experienced from this workshop:
•	 gained knowledge from other people
•	 that all the board members have similar goals.
•	 venting on stuff that has been said in the past and has come up again on
several levels
•	 I experienced a very good sessions with good questions and interactions
with the facilitator and the other participants.
What I appreciate about this experience:
•	 Was able to hear everyones comment
•	 not having to have a face to face meeting on a week night.
•	 being able to express my opinions without judgment
•	 I appreciated the back and forth discussions that were allowed by the
session.
What I would like to have more of:
•	 Contact from the people that are the ones that have the negative
comments outside the club
•	 more time to discuss ideas.
•	 cooperation and openness to new ideas instead of going with the same
old, same old.
•	 I would like to have more of these discussions which can help with website
development.

Overview
As defined in the Visual-Storytelling Activity Plan, the Visual-Storytelling is
an continuation of the Warm-Up Activity that facilitates participants to use
creative thinking and drawing to further their creative exploration.
An online session is made to facilitate the Visual-Storytelling Activity Plan. At

Documentation Visual-Storytelling Activity
Visual Reflecting Icebreaker
The group participants are asked to review the Visual Aid (Figure 28), and to
write notes and observations about the collected feedback.
Results
In total, the participants thought the design was efficient and really
characterized the entire group’s thoughts from the Warm-Up Activity. Some
additional questions that the participants had were:
•	 How do we facilitate more ideas from other members?
•	 How do we decrease negativity?

‘What We Want’ Drawing
The group participants are asked to select four ideas from the center of the
Visual Aid (Figure 28). The participants were then instructed to create a table
with ‘website’ and ‘social media’ as headers, and the four selected ideas as
rows. Using this table, the participants were tasked with writing and filling-
out plans to achieve the eight goals table sections towards organization
improvement.
Results
Many similar ideas were expressed through words; however, the following is a
list of unique ideas that emerged from the entire group:
•	 Non-Event Social Media Postings
•	 Social Media Contests
•	 Engaging Community Issues
•	 Linking to Other Community Organizations/Calendars
•	 Connect with Surrounding Clubs/Organizations
•	 Reaching-Out Through Social Media/Support People
•	 Linking Website to Other Activities

Analysis
After completing the Visual-Storytelling Activity, participants felt that this
activity generated solid ideas and methods in which the organization could
potentially tackle the problem of growing their membership, and increasing
charitable donations.
Participants plan to take ideas generated in both the Warm-Up and Visual-
Storytelling Activities – concerning events, marketing, and social media – and
introduce them to the members of the organization at large.
The participants express a positive outlook on the development of an
events, marketing, and social media campaign to increase the organizational
membership.

  • 3. 3 The Problem The Burgh Bears are a non-profit social group that conducts charitable fundraising for their local community in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In recent years the organization’s membership is decreasing, and with the decrease the Burg Bears’ charitable support to the community is shrinking. Compiling the group’s overall experience with non-profit organizations, advertising, design, and marketing yields many years of individual professional experience, as well as loyalty to the organization. The Burgh Bears desire growth and an increase in charitable donations, but at this point it is apparent that the group is all voluntary. Specific Problem The Burgh Bears membership is gradually diminishing and their funds are dwindling. The reasons for this dynamic and possible solutions to the dilemma need to be explored, and facilitating creative thinking to address the challenge would be very useful.
  • 4. 4 About the Participants Figure 1. McAllister, S. (2012). Burgh Bears logo. [Online image]. Retrieved January 18, 2015, from http://www.burghbears.org/ Participant Overview The Burgh Bears (Figures 2–7) is a non-profit organization created to both promote social/recreational activities for its members, as well as provide charitable fund raising for different entities in the greater Pittsburgh area. They raise money for the Pittsburgh Aids Task Force, the Shepherd Wellness Community, PERSAD, the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, and the Gay & Lesbian Community Center of Pittsburgh. Group Details David Eichelberger Organization Committee Jeremy Lott Treasurer Dennis Mowrey Social Director Ray Sager Event Coordinator Kevin Truscott President Lee Volk Membership Director Figures 2–7. Burgh Bears Board Members’ Facebook Group pictures. (2015). Reprinted with permission.
  • 5. 5 Contacting the Participants Electronic Contact Email is used to contact the group participants (Figure 2) to explain the activity, to describe the role of the facilitator, and to explain the procedure and consent issues. Also, this email is used to inquire about general willingness of participation, to list what information is required, and to proceed to consent. Figure 8. Email. Author’s image.
  • 6. 6 Participant Consent Electronic Consent Electronic consent is used as an online consent form that can be electronically sent to group participants through email, text, message, or other formats that support hypermedia. The consent form explains the process, the recording, and records the participants agreement electronically. Figure 9. Qualtrics form. Author’s image.
  • 7. 7 Scheduling of Warm-Up Activity Electronic Scheduling Electronic scheduling is used to simplify the process of scheduling times for the Warm-Up and Visual-Storytelling Activities. Potential dates are entered into an online form, a link is sent to group participants, and they simply enter their name and select dates and times for which they are available. Figure 10. Doodle poll. Author’s image.
  • 8. 8 Project Activity Plan Icebreaker Activity Three Words Goals & Expected Outcome The goal is to break the ice, start the group’s creative juices flowing, and facilitate the group members in writing down and sharing three words that describe the coolest fund-raisers, group activities, and member experiences they have had with the Burgh Bears or with any other organization or participatory event. Also, write down what you think the success factors were for that event. Group Activity The six members of the group will participate in an interactive conversation and screen sharing. The problem the group will be addressing is creating a master list of fundraising, group activities, and experiences and making each participant aware of how that worked.

Participants are asked to draw a negative experience within any organization or club through a drawn picture. Group Activity The six members of the group will participate in an online drawing. The problem the group will be addressing is visualizing a negative or undesirable experience within their organization, and communicating that experience to the other participants without words.
