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.


Fleming’s Pink Party Invitation: Shwaagee Jessica “Pays It Forward”

October 13, 2010

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! Jessica was one of the lucky members that Got Shwaag’d with an invitation for her and 3 friends to the Exclusive Pink Party at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar’s DC Ranch location in Scottsdale, AZ.

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!

Drink Pink Happy Hour – Fleming’s Shwaagtastic Event

October 7, 2010

Shwaag.  We started our company with a vision of promoting good in the world.  We envisioned using our platform to highlight people and companies who give back to their communities.  We had the burning desire to attract generous members and generous advertisers so we could put the two together.

We are excited to announce that we’re starting to bring that vision to reality!  We rolled out our Local Shwaag feature, and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is providing our first Cause-Driven Shwaag!

Fleming’s celebrates October with a cause near and dear to its heart: Breast Cancer Awareness. This month, 100 percent of the sales of its new “Stoli Bombshell” cocktail will go to support the Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade.  So we’d love to encourage our Shwaag members to “Drink Pink” this month!   The REALLY good news? Our Shwaag members in ANY state can support this great cause at ANY Fleming’s Steakhouse location.
