emfluence at KC Pet Project!


Yesterday, a few members of the emfluence crew took a trip out to KC Pet Project to volunteer at their no-kill shelter. The basement of KC Pet Project houses all of the donations (food, toys, medical supplies, cleaning supplies), and is overseen by a very sweet woman named Mary. Mary works diligently to keep all the donation areas clean and navigable, and the emfluence crew was happy to help her with some of the projects that required more heavy lifting.

Before Thursday of last week, as an Administrator of the emfluence Facebook page, anything I posted or liked showed up as emfluence comment or like.

South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) felt like “Disney World for Geeks” in 2012: All the well-known characters from the Tech world were there. Souvenirs and tchotchkes were out of control, and around every street corner: something completely mind-blowingly cool and innovative.

We got the call last week from the Kansas City chapter of the Direct Marketing Association that three of our AMBITS submissions have won an award! We’re pleased as punch to be winning more AMBITS this year. We believe in judging our campaigns based not just on cool-factor and smooth style (which our clients can also boast), but on performance and return on investment. Kudos to the entire emfluence team and our winning clients on great work with great results!

What else can be said but "80s Night at the K"?  The emfluence team headed out to watch the Royals battle it out with the Seattle Mariners at Kauffman Stadium for the 80s Night, hosted by local fave cover band, the Zeroes! We think the pics speak for themselves.  Favorites are when a huge stray cat bolted out onto the field and the game had to pause until the critter could be rounded up http://idek.net/Po6 and the eighties-ladies paparazzi shot http://idek.net/Po7 Though an honorable mention goes out for the next […]
