CHICAGO, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kokopelli Communications Group has been named marketing agency of record for Windy City Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating poverty housing in the Chicago Metropolitan area. Windy City Habitat for Humanity selected Kokopelli for its unique communications expertise in the fields of interactive/digital marketing and public relations.
"Our distinct approach in creating diverse media campaigns will help generate measurable results for Windy City Habitat for Humanity," said Mike Fogarty, principal and founder of Kokopelli. "We are excited to partner with such an important local organization that helps so many Chicago families."
Windy City Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people from all walks of life to build simple, decent, affordable houses and to strengthen families and neighborhoods.

Through this approach, Habitat gives partner families a hand-up, restoring the hope and dignity that poverty can strip away. Thanks to dedicated and generous supporters, Windy City Habitat for Humanity has built or renovated houses for more than 150 families.
"We believe Kokopelli will deliver a communications campaign that will raise the organization's profile while increasing our volunteering and donation efforts," said Warren Callahan, chief executive officer, Windy City Habitat for Humanity.
