Body Glove Teams with SocialVibe for Charity

Redondo Beach, CA – Body Glove and SocialVibe have joined forces to help out YOUR favorite charity. By creating a profile with SocialVibe, picking your favorite charity and using Body Glove as a sponsor, Body Glove will help raise money for your favorite cause.

SocialVibe is a social networking application that specializes in connecting charity organizations with brands. Create a brand badge and place it on your MySpace and Facebook pages and every time your friends look at your page you earn points and Body Glove will donate money to your cause.

Being a family-owned business, part of Body Glove’s mission is to create relationships with charitable organizations and thus far we have picked them. Body Glove has worked with Surfrider Foundation, Reef Check, and Heal the Bay just to name a few, but Social Vibe is an interactive way for our consumers to tell us where to send Body Glove’s charitable dollars.

“SocialVibe is a really cool platform,” says Sarah Lalau, Public Relations for Body Glove, “it is such a unique way to bring our loyal customers and social causes together, and for Body Glove to build a stronger bond with both.”

It is as simple as going to www.socialvibe.com, creating a profile and picking a charity. Body Glove’s artwork and your charity’s message will be created and added to your profiles.

Bruce Irons To Leave Body Glove

A reminder to the Body Glove partners who are using Bruce Irons in any Body Glove marketing materials. Bruce Irons will no longer be sponsored by Body Glove.  His contract is up this month and will be sponsored by Volcom only.  So make sure you stop using Bruce for any future marketing materials.  It was great while we had him but now it's time for a new star to rise.
