Habitat for Humanity is an important organization to me, and I try to volunteer on my spare time (when I am not working at MWW Group of course!) I wanted to share my experience with my fellow MWWers and all of you, so I have put together a video blog of my day spent at a building project in Waldwick, NJ. Enjoy!

Ming Wang wants to make over the mother of the bride or groom and needs help reaching out and selecting the mom that needs it the most! The winning mom will receive a wardrobe makeover for the wedding and events leading up to the big day, after the submission of a convincing story of why she is the most in need of all the other mom entrants . The submissions will be seen on Ming Wang’s Facebook page in early 2011 (just in time for Valentine weddings!), where fans and pre-selected prominent wedding blogger judges vote (50/50 each) for the mom in most need of a makeover for her son or daughter’s wedding.
Before the contest goes “live”, some research and outreach must be done to let the digital world know about Ming Wang’s generous makeover. The task began with the search for prospective wedding blogger judges, where the criteria was based on content, engagement with readers, and influence in the wedding community. The list took a few hours to compile after a few Google searches and sifting through each blog individually. Immediately after, I drafted a pitch letter and reached out to my top 20 wedding bloggers since 15/20 bloggers was my overall cap limit. After a day or so, I reached out to more blogs to ensure that I at least had 15 worthy judges to present to the team. By the end of the week, I had received 10 responses from excited and eager wedding bloggers to participate in the contest- I was equally as excited as they were!
As the date of the contest is nearing, I was able to secure 15 wedding blogs (yeah!) and am continuously communicating back and forth with participating wedding bloggers about specific details of the contest and/or sharing images of Ming Wang’s collection to present a visual, as well as, fill in the unknown to them. Overall, this project holds value to me further than being just another “assigned task” but my first task that I drafted and managed on my own, which leaves me with a feeling of accomplishment and value- I’m beyond eager to see the responses and end result of my contribution!
