Wake Up America, began with a goal to engage, involve, and give every American, a “voice.” The idea was to build a nationwide following as a non-partisan communications organization. Since, they have developed an online media network with programming that provides not only entertainment, but thoughtful insight into some of the most critical issues our country faces today, and further, encourages discussion on the possibilities of change. Wake Up America’s President, Russ DeVan, says that: “There has never been a company with a mission quite like what we are out to do: Shift the thinking of much of our current culture from apathy and complacency to ‘action.’ The launch planned for September 4-7, 2014 features Dr. Ben Carson and other distinguished guests via a live stream Web-A-Thon”.
Will Head, CEO and Founder of Wake Up America, chose Twitter to launch the contest.
“Twitter is one of the most powerful social tools on the web. News and entertainment are the most viewed topics on the web and cable,” says Head. “We love asking Americans, ‘What would you tweet in 140 characters to get America to Wake Up?’ And the answer could win you some cash, tickets for two to our Gala Event and be interviewed on our live stream Web-A-Thon.”
