Last week, I was #vinobombed. Actually, you, as part of the charityspam community were #vinobombed. Like me at the time, you probably are wondering what exactly a VINOBOMB is!? Let me tell you…
The vinobomb is the brainchild of Vinomofo, an online wine company, who sell a selection of hand picked wines, based out of Melbourne. They run by the tag line of good vino, real mofos, epic deals. The VINOBOMB is their way of giving back to the community “a small gesture of thanks we share with people who’re doing great things in the community.”
Every month, they choose an individual, group or business doing awesome things in their community, things that make the world better a better place. On the last Friday of every month, they put the word out to their 56,000 facebook fans to nominate someone in the community doing great things, and guess what? Charityspam was nominated and vinobombed! How very cool.
The honor role already includes Kae Norman, founder of Rescued with Love, Jane Hunt, CEO of Fitted for Work, founders of Who Gives a Crap, Chantelle Baxter and David Dixon, founders of One Girl, St Kilda Mums and many more….
Want to know more??? Vinomofo started in 2007 in the garage of brothers-in-law and fellow wine geeks Justin Dry and Andre Eikmeier, they wanted to do something cool to inspire the world to drink awesome wine. Four years worth of wine related shenadigans later, involving a beaten-up kombi, a show called Road to Vino, a name change from vinomojo they ‘officially’ launched Vinomofo in 2011.
So this Friday afternoon, I would like you to pour yourself a glass of wine, and recieve my heartfelt gratitude for being part of the charityspam community, the amazing people who inspire each post, my readers, my contributors, my guest bloggers, my editors and everyone who puts a random act of kindness into their day – THANK YOU!
If you know an extraordinary human being who deserves a random act of kindness, why not shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your nomination and why you think they deserve to be #vinobombed!
