Testimonials about our team
"Kerry is one of the most passionate advocates I’ve ever had the honor to meet. Not only is she passionate, she is absolutely brilliant with more tools up her sleeve than I ever even knew existed, and is connected to like-minded souls all over the world. As the Coordinator for NSSC, I am grateful beyond what any words could ever express for Kerry’s willingness to take this Coalition on pro bono, and to team up with Allie Merrick to offer us discounted consulting services. I know, with Accelerating Social Good's help, we are finally going to be able to be the voice for the 14.2 million adults and 8 million children with serious brain disorders who are unable to speak for themselves.”

"Writing a social impact report with creation of a video for our organization was a daunting task that Kerry and Allié made seamless. Their problem-solving mindset helped us to dissect the project into smaller pieces and prioritize where needed. The dedication, knowledge, and passion shown by both was invaluable. The end result was something that was well beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend Kerry and Allié for anyone looking for creative minds to help launch campaigns or create reports that your organization will be proud to call their own!"

"Kerry Martin and Allie Merrick are doing some amazing work for the National Shattering Silence Coalition. They are brilliant at creating social media campaigns with videos, interviews, blogs, stories, fundraising and awareness campaigns. They also re-vamped the website to make it more accessible, organized and effective for people to learn about our coalition, our leadership team, our mission, our policy positions, and our membership. They interact frequently to ensure that we are pleased with their work products and quickly integrate changes based upon our constructive feedback to ensure the final product contains the content we are hoping for. I happily recommend their services!!"

"I would work with Kerry and Allie again in a heartbeat. They have gone out of their way to assist our organization in providing advising and organizational work that rendered us all impressed. I deliver freelance branding services myself and was encouraged and inspired by the level of expertise and competence this duo brought to the table. Our redesigned website is now on par with professional competitors and in they did it on budget and on time. Not only was it done effectively but corresponding with Kerry through communication channels was efficient and articulate. Kerry and Allie both hold their own when serving their clients. My expectations have been surpassed."

"Lucia's artistic talents are amazing. She comes from a deep place of empathy and caring, bringing that felt sense of humanity to all her creative work. We have successfully collaborated on arts and healing projects ranging from illustrated stories and animated stories to an animated public service announcement. Our focus has been on domestic violence, women's rights, anti-bullying, mental health well-being, and suicide prevention. The quality of Lucia's work has garnered international recognition. I truly look forward to continued collaboration on behalf of social justice and mental health awareness with Lucia and the team at Accelerating Social Good in 2022 and beyond.”

"Looking for someone who is dedicated, passionate and an action-oriented person? Kerry Martin is a sterling example. It does not take extensive interviewing to recognize that she has not only identified one of the most serious issues in need of tackling, but she utilizes vast organizational skills to make it possible to create a real dent in the area of concern. She deserves all the support she can muster, and her focus is a prime example of what the ABC4All Legacy strives to support, preserve and expand."

"Kerry is an unstoppable object. Like a human meteor, the impact inevitable. Pounding away at those areas of life that don't work for people. She has an amazing heart and mind that looks for new and exciting ways of making this world work for people."

"Since the inception of Awareness Ties, there has been a voice of encouragement and vision for strategy to sustain positive social impact - specifically for Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention. That voice and vision has come from Kerry Martin. Honored to have her as an Official Advisor for Awareness Ties, and one of our Official Ambassadors for Suicide Prevention. Her support has helped us sustain a platform designed to serve so many with awareness raised a story at a time. Proud that she is part of our story. I am also proud to collaborate with her team as their new Chief Content Officer."
