WASHINGTON: Two former communications executives with the United Nations Foundation have formed a Washington, DC-based PR firm, Point Blank Public Affairs, with a special focus on nonprofits.

Amy Weiss, deputy press secretary to President Clinton, most recently served as VP of public affairs for the UN Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy group founded in 1997 by Ted Turner. Debra DeShong served as director of communications and public affairs for the foundation.

"From our experience with nonprofits, we saw that there was a need for strategic thinking and our skills in the nonprofit world," DeShong said.

The firm has signed up several clients, including FXB, an international nonprofit that does work with AIDS orphans.
