  6. LATISM ’13: Latina Bloggers Share What #InspireCare Means to Them

    1 Comment

    Every year, we look forward to the Latinos in Social Media (LATISM) conference. It’s a time to see old friends and make new ones all the while taking in gems of information provided by panelists and peers about how to better our businesses and strengthen our community.

    Between thought-provoking sessions and catching up with family, we worked closely with our client Johnson & Johnson to spread the word about their #InspireCare campaign, which is just one of their several initiatives designed to encourage healthy lifestyles and support those who care for the health of others. Our very own Ana Flores took center stage to interview those in the healthcare field and Latina Bloggers who inspire and move their readers every day with their passion, creativity and love for what they do.
    #latism13  #inspirecare Johnson & JohnsonsDuring the Johnson & Johnson luncheon, we busted the salsa moves with Raquel Garzón, who encouraged us all to stop multi-tasking and get up to dance or just move in microbursts to stay healthy. Ana also interviewed Univision’s Dr. Juan Rivera, who invited anyone following the hashtag to ask health-related questions.

    In addition to the luncheon, we invited Latina Bloggers to tell us what “Inspire Care” means to them. From artists to teachers, we were inspired the entire day by their stories and wished we could spend more time talking to these amazing mujeres. To see the videos, please check out our YouTube channel to see videos like this one with Kathy Cano of Crafty Chica, who says that when you feel good about yourself, it projects out and makes other people feel good to be around you.

    Thank you Johnson & Johnson and LATISM for the extraordinary collaboration!

These bloggers are aware that texting while driving is involved in 100,000+ vehicle crashes each year, often causing injuries and deaths, and have decided to take the pledge themselves and join us in promoting this important movement.  Visit their blogs to read more!
