Social Good Summit is a community of like-minded individuals who believe in having the power to solve the world’s greatest problems.  Austin’s event will take place on September 24th, 2013 at Austin Community College Eastview with the focus on not only the progress that has been made in a year, but more importantly the new and innovative developments made to incorporate your voice, ideas, and actions.   This year’s theme will be “Me to the power of (We)”, the concept of aligning all efforts in creating social good in the world by empowering individuals to spur innovative change through support,  creating a ripple change that becomes contagious and continuous.

Social Good Summit Austin 2013 will include for the first time, Social Innovators Fastpitch featuring social entrepreneurs and innovators from the community who are working on changing the world.   Attendees will get to hear ideas and vote on who will lead the initiative for the year.  The goal is to raise $5000 through donors using Crowd Tilt to award the prize winner to be awarded to the winner at the event.

Stay Tuned for June’s AutoShow

By: Monica Peña   (@MUNDUmedia)

I was contacted in May with the opportunity to talk about being a member of Hispanic Women’s Network of Texas, my company, and my experience driving the Buick Encore for an Autoshow that will air in June thanks to General Motors, Auto Show TV, and being part of an extraordinary Texas wide women’s organization.

Part of the process was driving the BUICK Encore for a week so that I could share how I felt about the automobile. I thoroughly enjoyed the leather appointed seats, audio system, and overall smoothness of the vehicle while I drove to appointments and ran my errands.

On film day I was able to meet Eric Paz of Auto Show TV in person with the only program on television in Spanish specifically explaining about vehicles in the region. The 30 minute car show that I will appear in will air June 30th at 10 am in Spanish on Telemundo in Austin, Houston, Dallas and San Antonio to reach approximately 1.4 million viewers.
