Shwaag Week Events!

November 22, 2010

Shwaag Week: The week before Thanksgiving dedicated to celebrating Social Goodness.

It’s almost here! Thanksgiving, the holiday that has us “officially” focusing on our blessings and reaching out to help others. We know that Shwaag Members are into Social Goodness, Paying it Forward, and effecting change…which also means you recognize blessings the rest of the year, too! That’s why we announced Shwaag Week on Friday! It’s the week before Thanksgiving, and we’re celebrating Social Goodness.

If this is the first you’re hearing of Shwaag Week, then you haven’t checked your email inbox lately. We’re stirring things up a little with a Shwaag offer to be truly thankful for, generous Bonus Shwaag, and a contest that highlights YOUR favorite charity!

Be generous. Be thankful. Be present…as in Fully Present in the moment. Spend time with friends, family, and loved ones this holiday season. And always remember, Team Shwaag appreciates you!!!

Honoring Our Veterans

November 11, 2010

Our troops, our veterans, our soldiers.  These heroes are the ultimate example of Social Goodness.  They give to others, often more than will ever be returned to them.  They fight everyday to defend and protect the freedom and rights of their country.  They often are asked to pay the ultimate price and lay down their lives.  And they do all of this so that we in America can enjoy things such as Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech.

On behalf of all of us at Shwaag, we honor and thank all of our Veterans.  We’ll take today to do it publicly, but we are grateful for you the other 364 days of the year, too.

Get it. Give it.  At Shwaag, that’s more than a motto, it’s a way of life.  And we’re attracting members who have a strong belief in the power of Paying it Forward.

So we’re excited that Shwaag Member Jessica Adza has decided to “Pay it Forward” to other Shwaag Members!

Here’s how it works:

We’ll be giving away Jessica’s invitations via Facebook and Twitter to TWO FANTASTIC “FOODIES”

  • The FIRST tweet that is an at reply to @Shwaag and has the hashtag #DrinkPink is in! (RT’s are great, and we love them…but sorry, they don’t count as entry!)
  • The FIRST comment on our Facebook post regarding this Pay It Forward invitation from Jessica is in, too!
  • Both of these lucky Shwaag members will be able to ALSO Pay It Forward by inviting a Foodie Friend!

Ready, Set….wait!  Hold on a sec.  This event is time sensitive AND we want to make sure it goes to Shwaag members that will be able to actually use it!  That said, the recipients of this “Pay It Forward” Shwaag MUST meet the following qualifications:

IMPORTANT: even if you see someone has already tweeted/posted, make sure you do, too!  You never know…that first tweet or comment might not meet the above qualifications!
