We want to thank all our followers for the success of our new “Fifty Causes” Campaign! So far we have featured GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services) and Soles4Souls who seeks to provide shoes for every person in the world! Both causes were amazing and we are so excited for what is to come!
This coming Monday we will feature The Sheepfold. The Sheepfold is a refuge for domestically abused mothers and their children; not only are they a safe haven but they help these families become independent separate from their abusers. The Sheepfold “Fifty Causes” campaign will launch October 8th on causes.reminderband.com; don’t miss your chance to donate! Below is a video about domestic abuse brought to you by The Sheepfold.
On October 15th we will switch directions and feature The Adventure Project. An organization on a mission to create 10 million jobs in the next ten years. Founded in 2010 by Becky Straw & Jody Landers, who met while traveling through Liberia, West Africa. They have joined forces to raise awareness and funds to support the world’s most-effective social ventures. Find their campaign starting October 15th on causes.reminderband.com. Below is a video describing how they plan give a stove to families in need this holiday season and through our campaign you can help!
We are also ecstatic to announce that on October 22nd we will be featuring the GimmeMo’ Foundation. Founded in 2009 by Disney Channel star Monique Coleman. Coleman was a Highschool Musical star but she knew there was more to come in her life. Below is the story of her mission to create something more.
We have created our Fifty Causes campaign to provide an easier way to give. See you soon!
Reminderband is proud to sponsor the GimmeMo foundation. Read on the hear our guest blogger Meaghan O’Connor relive how she got involved with GimmeMo.
I remember the first time I saw Monique Coleman while I was in New York City this past summer. A midwest girl with big city stars in my eyes, I just so happened to think that meeting a Disney Channel High School Musical star would be the highlight of my summer. We got a group picture that night, and all I remember thinking was please let her stand next to me so that I can show my mom and sisters. I had no idea that later that summer we’d meet to talk about partnering up for the journey she says she’s always been destined for.
“This is something that’s never been done before… it’s about giving youth their voice back,” she said at our first meeting.
I saw the passion and fire in her eyes that night, and have accepted a position on her team because I too believe in the mission—creating a real and open environment for youth to engage in conversation that they can barely find a time or place for otherwise.
This fall, Monique is asking teens across the country what they want Mo’ of. We’ll be taking feedback from our listeners, interacting with our guests and followers, and talking about subjects that will encourage teens to express themselves and learn without fear or embarrassment.
With the added help of Reminderband, we’ll soon be spreading our message by taking it to the streets. We’ll be handing out wristbands that ask the question: What do you want Mo’ of? We’ll also be talking to and interacting with teens on a quest to become the ultimate listener and representative of our young audience.
So what do YOU want Mo’ of?
Because whatever it is, GimmeMo has it for you.
I believe in the future of GimmeMo. I believe that youth deserve a judgement-free circle to talk about things that are both real and relevant in their own lives. I believe that Monique will reach people and make lasting impressions. After all, Monique got a twenty-year-old college girl focused on a professional career to turn her head at a party, who’s to say that she won’t grab the voices of teens all across the world?
