BlogHer ’12 Spotlight: Party for a cause

It can become easy getting caught up in the showering of swag, the flood of appetizers and constant rushing from booth to booth and from one event to the next when you’re at an event like BlogHer. It certainly doesn’t make attendees better or worse than anyone else to partake; think of it as a little vacation wrapped in a little work sprinkled with a few gifts! Amid all this sprinkling, however, I attended an event that I was pleased to find was unlike any other I’d been to during my time there.

The R&R Suite was an event organized by Trumpeting Media (@TrumpetingMedia). The goal of Trumpeting Media, according to their website, is to use the power of social media for the social good and was founded by four social media power moms – Esti Berkowitz of Primetime Parenting, Suzanne Chan of Mom Confessionals, Nancy Johnson Horn of The Mama Maven and Divina Rodriguez of Dancing Hotdogs.

An amazing group of sponsors gathered at the Four Seasons Hotel in NYC (@FSNewYork) to not only connect with bloggers and introduce their products, both new and known, but to help Trumpeting Media and the attending bloggers contribute to a few amazing causes.

Evologie (@EvologieSkin) is a brand new skin care line that we think is simply amazing.  With their patent pending YS3 Complex, its perfect for clearing blemishes.

As if Pepperidge Farm’s (@PepperidgeFarm) Milano Melts and Salted Pretzel Milanos weren’t divine enough, they treated the guests of the R&R Suite with Massages & Manicures from the Four Seasons Spa.

The FitBit (@FitBit) Tracker and Aria scale combined give a raw picture of your health and really kicked our team into gear.

The House of Marley (@HouseofMarley)  featured their HMDX Jam portable speakers and Rohan Marley @RoMarley even sent over some of his amazing coffee to truly bring Jamaica to NYC.


Three of the Trumpeting Media moms are also Beaches Moms (@BeachesResorts) so Beaches was on hand to tease and tempt attendees with their amazing vacation locales.

Collectively, these sponsors, with the help of R&R attendees, assisted Trumpeting Media in donating $500 to Feeding AmericaSt Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National MS Society.

I was glad to be a part of the event, to see the amazing sponsors that attended, and to party for a cause! If you’d like to see photos from the event, check out the Flickr feed from Trumpeting Media!
