December 3, 2014

Compare and Share! 
Last week we asked for your help in winning the 2014 Elevator Pitch series, and although The People’s Choice award went to Karisma Kidz - good job guys! - we are more than thrilled to have picked up the awards closest to our sharing hearts: the Elevator Pitch series Award for Social Good!

If you’re curious about the other winners for the infamous Elevator Pitches series were in 2014, just follow this link! And if you’d like to see Benita Matofska, Chief Sharer Compare and Share, deliver our winning pitch… then here it is!

 

Thank you Sharers for all  your support, you’re the best!
