Hi, I'm Jules Kahn-Brown,

an award-winning, freelance copywriter. I specialise in the creation of highly persuasive fundraising communications for good causes.

With over 10 years experience in direct response charity writing and creative direction, my work has helped raise tens of millions of dollars for some of the world's leading charities. I'm based in Wellington, New Zealand, but I write for fundraisers all over the globe.

About this font: Dyslexie is a unique font specially created by graphic designer Christian Boer to make reading easier for people with dyslexia. Find out more here.





Over the last 14 years I've written for pretty much every non-profit sector you can think of. Overseas Aid. Homelessness. Domestic Violence. Hospice. Disability. The Environment. Women’s Rights. Hospitals. 

LGBT Rights. Child Welfare. Elder Care. Animal Rights. Blindness. Medical Research. 

Poverty. Human Rights. Education. Well . . . you probably get the picture.

Before becoming a copywriter I worked for 15 years in account handling for various below-the-line agencies in London and Dublin, culminating in 5 years as Director of Direct Marketing for J. Walter Thompson's affiliate agency in Ireland. I'm also a DipDM graduate of the UK's Direct Marketing Institute.



I've been fortunate to have worked with over 100 different charities and NGOs. Sometimes directly, mostly through leading direct marketing fundraising agencies like Robe John (Aus), Flat Earth Direct (Aus), Pareto Fundraising (Aus), Black (NZ), and Ask Direct (Ireland, which I helped get off the ground with respected fundraiser, Damian O'Broin in 2006). These are some of the organisations I've written for over the years...
