EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wpromote today announced that it has joined Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business by pledging 1% of employee time.
"Our employees are increasingly socially conscious, and joining Pledge 1% is the next way we're giving back to our community," said Michael Block, COO of Wpromote. "Our employee-led charity committee, Wprovide, has been a foundational part of our company for years, and we're always looking for ways to change more lives."
Through this initiative, Wpromote will expand its focus on helping non-profits grow both their online and offline presence. In October 2016, Wpromote introduced Wprobono: Digital Day in LA, which hosted local non-profits for an entire day of workshops, courses and discussions.

Joining Pledge 1% is not just a symbolic act; we aim to impact community involvement, awareness and fundraising across every non-profit we work with," said Michael Mothner, Founder and CEO of Wpromote.
