In order to commemorate National Stress Awareness Day, and in conjunction with Colgate, Mamiverse is pleased to announce our inaugural SmileUP event, a social media gathering that promises to inspire, empower and make a difference in the lives of everyone who participates.
The event will take place on Tuesday, April 23 from 9:00-10:30pm EST, on both Twitter and Facebook, using the hashtag: #SmileUP. Throughout the event, people will be encouraged to share the things in their life—no matter how big or small—that make them smile.
Studies have shown that gratitude for life’s often-overlooked moments offers a key building block for living a happy and fulfilled existence. By reading about what makes others smile, we hope to create a massive wave of digital smiles around the country!
“There is so much stress we all have to deal with on a daily basis, we wanted to create a couple of positive hours where all we read about from our friends were things that make them smile,” says Mamiverse CEO Rene Alegria. “When our friends show us what makes them happy, we tend to appreciate the things we have, and in turn feel happy ourselves.”
The event is the culmination of a month-long campaign to bring joy into the lives of any Mamiverse reader.
“We have always made it a point to bring joy into the lives of our readers through the information we provide,” says Mamiverse Editor-in-Chief Lorraine C. Ladish. “Our series of posts this month on happiness, smiles and stress-alleviation, along with the debut of an amazing series of original videos, is what Mamiverse is all about—joy, gratitude and empowerment.”
When: Tuesday, April 23 from 9:00-10:30pm EST
Where: Twitter, Facebook
What to Bring: A list of things, moments, people, that make you smile. And friends! Everyone is welcome.
Prizes: Five ‘Smile Baskets’ featuring a collection of Colgate products. Winners will be announced via Twitter and Facebook Wednesday April 24 and they must claim their prize within 48 hours.
