The "Making Change" Award acknowledges organizers who have successfully and creatively held a cash mob in their community by uniting the community through social media and various marketing outlets. This award not only congratulates the Myrtle Creek- Tri City Area Chamber of Commerce and organizer Paulette Jones on their successful event, but it also aims to inspire and fuel future cash mobs throughout the country. Ted Romas, President of Myrtle Creek Tri- City Area Chamber of Commerce, said, “Paulette Jones did her homework before presenting the cash mob idea to both the Myrtle Creek City Council and the Chamber of Commerce. She got ‘buy-in’ from both and is now in full partnership with the Chamber about upcoming cash mobs.”
Myrtle Creek has excelled with their media outreach by not only utilizing Facebook and Twitter but also other news and media outlets as well. This outreach notifies residents of where the cash mob will be held along with rules and specifications. "Paulette Jones’ dedication toward multiple cash mobs has inspired not only our entire team here at CashMob, but other communities as well," said Suzanne Obszanski, Director of Marketing and Promotion for CashMob.com.
Myrtle Creek- Tri City Area Chamber of Commerce and Paulette Jones have successfully completed two cash mobs and are eager to implement monthly mobs to help support local establishments. Jones states, "Local businesses are so excited to get involved. More businesses are now supporting one another and giving back to the community." CashMob.com is honored to present "Making Change" and looks forward to what mobs and community involvement Myrtle Creek will bring in the future.
