Our audience were able to get a better understanding of ways we can collaborate together as a community to promote digital inclusion in low to moderate impoverished areas in our communities. 

Participants left with a Call-To-Action of joining the “Digital Responsibility Challenge”, whether monetary, in-kind, and/or by way of volunteering in communities that have a need for access to internet and computers/laptops in their home.
May 2018 - Portfolio Show at C3 LAB Hosted by CPCC Levine Campus
GEMZ offers mentorship program services to high school students along with community college students to help encourage advancement and innovation in technology specifically underserved youth. 

We were fortunate to work with Central Piedmont Community College to help their advanced graphic students with their “Portfolio Show”. Students were given different concepts to work with in order to showcase a portfolio of their unique talent as it relates to graphic design. 

This was an amazing opportunity to meet some really unique and rare talent. GEMZ focus was to help the class find a meeting space for the event along with logistics of setting up this venue and also making sure that refreshments were available for the students as well as their guest.
August 2018 - WGIV Interview With Katris Wright of Esthers Virtue Nonprofit

These series offer basic to advanced level income-generating concepts to help nonprofits sustain their mission from the word, “go”!
October 2018 - ADSUM Conference
GEMZ was chosen by Host Nate Lind because we aligned with ADSUM’s Mission of Giving Back and helping others aka “ONLINE SELLERS SUMMIT” is the ULTIMATE event for online retailers and the services that support them. 

Our goal was to go there to learn about online retailers and services so that we could become a product or our product and teach Grassroots nonprofits on generating income thru ecommerce. 

They bring Amazon resellers, Shopify storefronts, affiliate marketing advertisers, and anyone selling products online together with the companies that help them succeed. 

Then for three days, they help everyone develop the knowledge and relationships to thrive. 

ADSUM staff did everything they could to make ONLINE SELLERS SUMMIT feel like an industry retreat for the online retail community this event was stellar. It starts with the panels. 

A roster of A-list marketers and business legends. We had the opportunity to speak and be involved with guest speakers and panelists throughout the event. 

We were able to pitch a project that has been on our mind and heart and left the event with an Amazing Board of Advisors as well as we will be represented by one of the world’s top celebrity branding company that has a passion to give back and help others.
