Good Bumblebee kicks off Q4-2019 with the #WeCanHelp campaign
“Q4 is always a busy time for retailers,” said Good Bumblebee president Gina Smith, “and our online marketplace goodbumblebee.com is no different. However, for a socially- and environmentally-conscious company like ours, this is also an important time for giving back in the community.”Gina continued, “We created the #WeCanHelp campaign because it is flexible enough to support our business growth initiatives as well as our desire to volunteer and give back to the community. Our online followers and customers can expect to see us producing a variety of content showcasing the innovative products on our website in ways that help our customers achieve their own people-positive, Earth-positive, and animal-positive goals. For example,
- “Looking for eco-friendly gifts this holiday season?”
- “Want to help friends and family reduce single-use plastics?”
- “Want to give toxin-free self-care gifts to friends and family?”
- “Looking for a ‘clean’ way to freshen up your skincare routine?”
- “Want to help friends and family with sustainability-oriented New Year’s resolutions?”
- “Looking for a toxin-free, eco-friendly way to clean and spruce up your home for the holidays?”
- “Want to help keep plastic out of the oceans and away from our sea friends?”
- “Wanna save the world?”
According to Gina, the Good Bumblebee answer is "#WeCanHelp!”The #WeCanHelp campaign also supports the Good Bumblebee team’s desire to give back and offer service within the community. A pickup truck load of food has already been delivered to a neighborhood food bank and more community-oriented initiatives are planned. In keeping with campaign messaging…
- “Looking to reduce hunger in our community?”
- “Want to clean up the neighborhood?
- “Want to assist those in need this holiday season?”
The response from the Good Bumblebee team is “#WeCanHelp!”
Gina concluded by stating, “We’ll be sharing stories, images, and packaged content related to this campaign throughout Q4 so be sure to stay tuned!”
