NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Viva Entertainment Group, Inc (OTC: OTTV), a developer of OTT systems through which television services are delivered using the Internet, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Distribution and Marketing Agreement with the Non-Profit Montessori Model UN Program (MMUN), designed to generate subscribers for Viva's online entertainment programming as well as revenue not only for MMUN to use to fund its humanitarian projects, but also to make the reciprocal benefits available to the larger UN NGO community, including other Model UN programs.
MMUN's communications reach more than 5,000 domestic schools and 7,000 schools globally, and within the UN NGO community there are approximately 3,500 organizations that can benefit from Viva's Reciprocal Revenue program. The total reach is estimated to be more than three million domestic households of supporters to the NGO and school communities. Under the terms of the agreement, Viva has funded the development of The Bridge App, a free app designed by MMUN student Delegates that will enable humanitarian organizations to leverage their resources and more cost-effectively accomplish their goals. MMUN will distribute the app for free to its network of schools and to the UN NGO community. Users of the app will have the option of subscribing to Viva's online entertainment programming, which will effectively permit them to eliminate their cable TV subscription, significantly reducing their at-home entertainment costs. "Subscribers will not only save money, but they also will contribute to the greater good, because a portion of the monthly subscription money is allocated to benefit the participating organization," states Viva's CEO, Johnny Falcones. "For NGOs, this is an important opportunity," MMUN Chairman Michael Jacobson adds. "Viva will provide an NGO with a predictable monthly revenue stream while providing a significant savings for their supporters on their home entertainment bills. It's a win-win for all parties involved and will help to overcome donor fatigue. I think once the program is launched by the NGO and school communities that it will be picked up by other community organizations that in need of new ways for fund raising such as churches, mosques and synagogues for their projects. It's easy to promote and implement because they are saving their supporter's money by offering TheBridge App."
The app's design has been successfully previewed to MMUN's school network, and the free version will become available for download in September, in time for the school fund raising season and before the NGO community's traditional fund raising push begins.
