El Segundo, CA, June 07, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Roozt.com is proud to announce its partnership with accessory brand Light Gives Heat (LGH) to push for a win in “The Give- Cultivate Wines” contest this quarter. With enough votes, LGH could receive a $50,000 grant from Cultivate Wines. The grant will enable LGH to tour the U.S. with its award-winning film “Moving On” and call more people to action for not only the LGH cause, but also global connectedness.
“Moving On” is a feature-length film documenting the events in the lives of LGH founders Dave and Morgan Hansow that inspired their passion for social change. From their move to Uganda, to the adoption of their daughter, they realized that taking risks could have extraordinary impact on their lives and the lives of others.
Since the inception of LGH in 2007, the Hansows have taken seriously their task of communicating their experiences to the Western world. Considering film the optimal medium for sharing their story, LGH produced the film “Moving On.” If LGH wins Cultivate Wines’ $50,000 grant, they will take the film to 148 college campuses across the U.S., with an audience of tens of thousands of people who are the next generation of world changers. The contest supports Roozt’s platform of connected capitalism and if won, will afford LGH the means to significantly expand their reach and their message.
To vote for LGH, people can visit http://www.voteLGH.com directly, or lend support at http://www.cultivatewines.com/give. “Liking” the Cultivate page on Facebook enables people to vote once every day through June 30th, 2012.
Since its founding, LGH has generated enough revenue to pay sustainable incomes to more than 100 women in Uganda, giving them the means to send their children to school. LGH aims to empower Africans though economic, sustainable and creative endeavors and to motivate people in the West to “be the change they wish to see in the world.” LGH has won accolades throughout the U.S and in 2010, the Hansows were chosen as “People Who Make a Difference” by Oprah.
