We view the world as one global community and by providing our users the forum and opportunity to make a difference, they are having a direct impact on global issues.

Global Connect, a new up and coming social media company centered on global issues and events, officially launched it’s Internet radio station last week. According to Tom Woods, Global Connect’s President and CEO, “Global Connect Radio is attempting to combine the communication ‘power’ of the airwaves with social engagement! The Global Connect brand has established itself as the premiere resource for global-related content, and Global Connect Radio allows us to extend our reach on another level! What better way to ‘connect’ people of the world than by engaging them in a truly ‘global’ listening experience?”
Global Connect Radio combines chart-topping rock & pop hits with songs that have a global "awareness" message performed by top artists. In the coming weeks, Global Connect Radio will also feature a talk-radio lineup that will provide users with sharp, witty, and no-holds barred insight on the global issues affecting our world.
Global Connect envisions that the establishment of its radio station will increase social engagement on a global scale. Once such program poised to benefit from this new global reach is the company’s “Connect Your Cause” promotion. The “Connect Your Cause” promotion provides users the opportunity to nominate a cause to compete against other nominees in a contest to win a cash donation for their cause. Users will have the opportunity to vote on the cause of their choice, and the cause with the most votes at the conclusion of the contest will win the donation. According to Tom Woods, “We view the world as one global community and by providing our users the forum and opportunity to make a difference, they are having a direct impact on global issues.” The “Connect Your Cause” promotion officially begins on June 1, 2010 and the last day to nominate or vote for a cause on the Global Connect is June 30, 2010.
With initiatives such as Global Connect Radio and it’s “Connect Your Cause” promotion, Global Connect is attempting to live up to its pledge to redefine social awareness on the web, over the air, and in your community.
