"I am thoroughly excited to announce this relationship because it represents how capitalism and philanthropy can be so perfectly intertwined, vs. the popular myth of these notions being in juxtaposition," said Pop Labs' President and CEO Gene McCubbin.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
Pop Labs announced today that it would be named the official worldwide interactive marketing and branding agency of record for the US based Mrs. Globe pageant, the largest international pageant for Mrs. in the world. Additionally, Pop Labs was also named agency of record for the sister organization and underlying charity supported by the pageant, the Women in Need Foundation (W.I.N.). Pop Labs will assist Mrs. Globe and W.I.N. in expanding their comprehensive outreach efforts to women all over the world, both through the empowerment created through the pageant and the outreach and community service exemplified through W.I.N. Initial efforts will include a comprehensive re-development of the web site, email marketing, social media, viral video, SEO, sponsorship enlightenment and analytics, as well as regional director support programs and delegate branding pre-and-post pageant.
"I am thoroughly excited to announce this relationship because it represents how capitalism and philanthropy can be so perfectly intertwined, vs. the popular myth of these notions being in juxtaposition," said Pop Labs' President and CEO Gene McCubbin. "Through the Mrs. Globe pageant, founder Dr. Tracy Kemble was able to create a global platform for her long-term sustainable goal of attracting attention and support for a cause that is constantly ignored and denied worldwide. This is a cause that reaches into virtually every human's life, and I am honored to be a part of an organization that celebrates and supports the healing and recovery of families and individuals. Dr. Tracy and her executive team have created and grown a licensing system and all the necessary support and training, over the last fifteen years, which celebrates the beauty and strength inherent in every woman. With donor programs and fund raisers such as the S.M.I.L.E. program, Christmas for Kids, Healing Cuts, and many more, W.I.N. is, quite simply, a beautiful cause...pun intended."
Mrs. Globe has affiliates in over one hundred countries worldwide, overseen by regional Directors in participating areas, which manage local pageants in their region. Through the two closely aligned organizations, thousands of women have been able to participate in the Right Living Program, taught by certified W.I.N. Leaders and Teachers. Pop Labs' interactive marketing expertise combined with the recognition of the Mrs. Globe and W.I.N. Foundation brands will no doubt strengthen the foundational support, encourage participation, and inspire growth amongst all three organizations.
Dr. Tracy made the following statement: "For us to be able to create change and provide help, it takes name awareness and proper funding. I believe this partnership creates a win-win environment for us all."
The announcement follows Pop Labs President Gene McCubbin's recent attendance at the W.I.N. Leadership Training Course in Amersfoort, Netherlands. The event was kicked-off with the Latin & Dutch Fashion Exchange http://museodemoda.nl/web/ in which Pop Labs' Latin American affiliate, Melanie Stemmler, showcased her unique fashion designs modeled entirely by current Mrs. Globe Netherlands finalists and organized by the Lakma Museum http://lakma.nl. Mrs. Stemmler http://www.melaniestemmler.com/ is the current 2011 title holder for Mrs. Globe Guatemala & 2nd runner up at Mrs. Globe International, and heads up Pop Labs' Latin American marketing efforts. "I knew immediately after touring Pop Labs' facilities, that linking Dr. Tracy to Pop Labs would create very positive synergies for everyone," stated Mrs. Stemmler.
