With many socially-conscious companies on the rise, giving back has never been hotter.
Wpromote has always believed in giving back, however we are taking our social good acts to the next level. A new venture here at Wpromote, aptly named “Wprovide” (gotta love us clever ad-folk!), is a committee focused on organizing philanthropic opportunities for the Wpro employees to get involved and give back to the community. For Wprovide’s first event, we partnered with Heal The Bay, where employees took time to clean up the trash on El Porto beach here in our own backyard.
This month we will be hosting a “Social Good” mixer during Social Media Week, celebrating Los Angeles’ thriving internet industry and the many talented companies, organizations and innovators driving the future of advertising, media, technology and business online. This event will take place on Tuesday, September 20, at The Vault gallery in Culver City.
Guests will enjoy passed light fare, ONEHOPE WINE, VeeV Açaí Lemonade and Superfruit Margarita (two of the company’s signature drinks), which will made by a VeeV mixologist. There will be a DJ spinning all night, along with a brief panel discussion with Mike Mothner, Founder & CEO of Wpromote, Carter Reum, Co-founder of VeeV Açaí Spirit (official spirit of Virgin Airlines), Mike Weber, Director of Online for ONEHOPE Wine, and Mia Herron, Director of Marketing & Communications, Sir Richard’s Condom Company, surrounding the topic of “Social Good: Taking Social Media to Social Action.” In keeping with the Social Media theme, there will also be a raffle for attendees who tweet about this event through the hashtag #SMWSocialGood
“We came up with the concept of the panel because the fusion of entrepreneurship and social good is such an amazingly exciting trend. To have amazingly sharp business minds apply themselves to bettering the world is a topic that deserves attention.” said Mike Mothner, CEO of Wpromote. “The panelists all have incorporated social media deeply into their business models; without social media, these innovative startups very well may not be where they are today.”
