CashMob.com, a leader in the marketing and promotion of cash mob events, announces Nampa Chamber of Commerce as July's "Making Change" Award winners.
The "Making Change" Award acknowledges organizers who have successfully and creatively held a cash mob in their community by uniting community members through social media and various marketing outlets. This month’s award not only congratulates Nampa Chamber of Commerce and organizer Georgia Bowman on their successful event, but it also aims to inspire and fuel future cash mobs around the globe. Georgia Bowman, President of Nampa Chamber of Commerce, said, “After first reading about what a cash mob was, I knew I had to organize one in Nampa to help our struggling businesses.”
Nampa has excelled with their media outreach by utilizing social media outlets and local news outlets as well. This outreach notifies residents about the location of the upcoming cash mob and creates excitement for community members. "Nampa has shown the effects of encouraging people in the community to shop locally. Taking an hour out of your day to shop in a locally-owned store instead of a big-box retailer makes a larger impact on your community,” said Suzanne Obszanski, Director of Marketing and Promotion for CashMob.com.
Nampa Chamber of Commerce and Georgia Bowman have recently completed two cash mobs and are eager to implement future mobs to help support local businesses, especially around the holiday season. Bowman stated, "I look forward to seizing cash mob opportunities as they come our way. I am constantly thinking of new ideas." CashMob.com is honored to present July’s "Making Change" to Nampa Chamber of Commerce and looks forward to what mobs and community involvement they will bring in the future.
