Organic food industry marketing veteran, Jamie Lamonde, handpicked a supergroup of top talent from across the country — business and marketing strategists, brand mavens, researchers, designers, writers and engagement experts — to service clients who want partners with similar values, deep expertise and the creative mindsets to help fill gaps in their marketing departments.
"It's been a long-time dream of mine to merge my passion for helping mission-driven, organic and sustainable businesses with the passions of other amazing people I've collaborated with throughout my career," said Lamonde.

"Our entire team brings a heart-centered approach to our partnerships with socially conscious businesses and brands. We are dedicated to helping organizations and entrepreneurs succeed in order to transform our collective culture for the better."

Kindship Group "Doing Good" Program Launches Art Activism Market
Not only does Kindship Group serve mission-driven companies, it is a mission-driven company. That’s why the agency launched Doing Good, a program that embodies the values shared by Kindship Group team members.
Through Doing Good, the agency supports nonprofit organizations in five areas: 1) Organic Farming & Food Justice; 2) Climate Justice & Resiliency; 3) Youth Empowerment; 4) Inclusivity, Diversity & Equity; and 5) Women & Children’s Health.
The first initiative of Doing Good is the agency’s Art Activism Market. Through this market, Kindship Group partners with artists and makers to sell artwork that financially sustains causes around the world. The first piece of artwork in the market is a print by artist Kate Alyse Clark titled, “Fondness”. Twenty percent of the revenue of each print sale will be donated to The Solutions Project, an Oakland-based nonprofit committed to no less than 100 percent renewable energy access for 100 percent of people.
