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!!!

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.

Watch the skies turn Arizona pink as the sun sets over Phoenix, sample the Stoli Bombshell and a selection of wines from *women winemakers*, and nosh on Fleming’s delectable appetizers. Enjoy an evening of memorable times with friends old and new.  **Shwaagees for this event must be Active Arizona based Shwaag members.  Shwaagees and their guests for this event must be at least 21 years old.**

Beneath it’s beautiful exterior, the Stoli Bombshell packs a mighty good punch. The blend of Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Fresh Raspberries, Raspberry Preserves, and Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice weighs in at only 99 calories!  It’s available for the month of October and also featured on Fleming’s “5 for $6 ‘til 7” happy hour menu.

Shwaag Members, this is only the beginning!  We can’t wait to bring you more great Shwaag for a Cause.  Help us by leaving a comment and letting us know of any Premium restaurants in your area that actively support a great cause!

Facebook Down! Now What?

September 23, 2010

When Facebook is Down, Update Your Profile Instead!

Facebook stopped working earlier today, and sent millions of users rushing to Twitter to seek social connection. When we saw the explosion of Twitter users seeking a substitute way to spend time, we wanted to help out!

Our suggestion? Take a minute to login to your Shwaag account and update the “Things I Love” section on your profile! After all, we take our cue from you! If you tell us you love it, we work on bringing it to you.

Shwaag. Doing our part to help keep your “Status Update” skills in tact while Facebook works on a solution.
