It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

Billabong goes global with interactive initiative

Press Release:

 

BILLABONG GOES GLOBAL WITH “LIFE’S BETTER IN BOARDSHORTS”

 

IRVINE, CA, USA — (February 15, 2012) — Life’s Better in Boardshorts, a Billabong initiative designed to capture the moments that enrich our individual summer experiences, has officially gone into launch mode.

 

The interactive project calls on people to use the Instagram app to take a photo of whatever it is that makes their life better and then upload the image to a communal gallery at www.billabong.com/lifesbetter.

 

The payoff for sharing the photo is twofold. Each entry is eligible for prize packs that include everything from clothes to a surf trip but — more importantly — Billabong will make a $1 donation for each photo received to make life better for some less fortunate members of our global community.

 

The aim is to get 50,000 photos on display to reach Billabong’s donation cap of $50,000 — all of which will be sent to SurfAid International to assist in their humanitarian and disaster relief efforts in one of the surf world’s favorite playgrounds, Indonesia’s Mentawai Islands.

 

The Life’s Better campaign is already well under way, with more than 1000 photos so far uploaded to the website for viewing (and over $1000 raised for SurfAid).

 

Beach lifestyle lovers of all ages can visit www.billabong.com/lifesbetter to see what all the buzz is about and start sharing their own stories. To gain access to the Life’s Better in Boardshorts free movie download click on www.billabong.com/lifesbetter/video
