Last Friday, Wasabi Media Group became a three year old company. While most birthdays are celebrated with cake and presents, we have decided to mark this occasion in a different manner. Rather than commemorating this milestone with the focus on WMG, we want to celebrate by giving.
The editorial team has chosen four different charities to partake in this event. Each of these charities has been aligned with a specific article on a different property and will publish this morning. For the next two weeks we will keep track of the number of Facebook Likes each article receives. The article, and its charity, with the most Likes will be deemed the winner.
Who are the charities, and where can you find the articles? Here are the details:
- Cancer Research Institute – This group is “dedicated exclusively to the support and coordination of laboratory and clinical efforts that will lead to the immunological treatment, control, and prevention cancer.” To support this charity, Like In Defense of the big C on Health Eagle.
- Reading Tree – The aspiration of this group is to support children’s literacy by providing them with books. To support this charity, Like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on ‘Bout Books.
- Share Our Strength – The goal is simple: end childhood hunger by 2015. This group works to provide access to healthy, affordable food for all families. To support this charity, Like Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches on Think Tasty.
- Shelter Box – This organization provides “emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most.” To support this charity, Like Preparing Your Home for a Natural Disaster on ‘Bout Home.
I am pleased with the growth that I have seen in Wasabi Media Group in the last three years. It is even more pleasing that because of that growth, WMG will be able to give to others.
Fine print details: Each Facebook Like is worth ten cents ($0.10). The article that receives the most likes by midnight on Tuesday, July 19th, will be deemed the winner. Its charity will receive a donation that totals the number of Facebook Likes multiplied by $0.10. The maximum payment is $1,095.
