GATHER Gives Back – 2020

By JJ Griffin

We created GATHER Media LLC with a clear vision of building community and impacting lives through compelling storytelling. Every person in our community has a story, and EVERY story has the potential to encourage and inspire someone else.

Nothing is more fulfilling than seeing the look on someone’s face when you give credence to THEIR story. I remember sitting across from a man who felt that his story was inconsequential, unexceptional. After spending an hour in this man’s presence, I learned he had overcome significant challenges in his life. He had poured his life out in sacrificial ways to care for and love his wife and children, and he was making an impact daily in our community. I was shocked by his innocent question, “Why would you want to interview me?” I could not help myself. I declared to him that his story mattered! People who had been through similar things as he had would be encouraged by what he shared. He had lived a powerful legacy already, and it was an honor to share his story. He wept. That moment is the foundation of GATHER Media LLC – to empower people through storytelling.

At GATHER, we are making 2020 our year of giving back to our local community! 

We aim to captivate audiences with compelling storytelling focused on our very own community, and we are asking that all local businesses, organizations, and residents all be a part of the #GATHERGiveBack2020. 

We are talking to YOU!


We are looking for those who are interested in being highlighted and featured on our very well received Online Magazine at

What does it mean for you?

*It means a chance to showcase your business, your services and your place in our community for FREE


Since it is in the spirit of giving back, GATHER asks that you allow us a chance to share all that we are doing to revolutionize the marketing industry within our community.

We only need 20-30 minutes of your time. We will gladly gift you the opportunity to be featured on the GATHER Grand Traverse website and social media platforms for absolutely FREE (even if you decide that GATHER is not for you or your business/organization).
