Updates and What We’ve Been Up To

Posted: July 19, 2010 in Media and Press, What We're Up To

What’s up guys & gals,

Happy Monday! While your brain shifts back into work mode (we know it’s hard with all this awesome summer weather), we thought it would be a good time to check in and say hey, and welcome you once again to the ROOZT community!

So, while we’re running around like crazy getting everything ready for the big launch, we wanted to give you a sneak peak of what’s coming down the line in the next few weeks…

*** iPad Sweepstakes: Because who doesn’t love free stuff? To help spread the word about ROOZT and thank you guys for all your support, we will be giving away one free, brand-spankin’-new iPad!

*** ChessBoxing 4 Charity: We’ve teamed up with The Tiziano Project (an incredible non-profit organization that empowers journalists in war-torn countries. Check them out if you have some time, they’ll blow you away) for the first ever ChessBoxing 4 Charity event. Crazy, right? ChessBoxing is a true test of brains versus brawn: a new sport that makes competitors alternate rounds of boxing with speed chess…it sounds easy, until you have to try strategizing your next chess move after getting punched in the face repeatedly by your opponent. The night will feature Miss Malibu vs. Miss Hollywood (yes, we’re serious) and Andrew “The Fightin’ Philanthropist” McGregor vs. John Rude, with our good buddy Tower (of American Gladiators) serving as MC. You can watch videos of ChessBoxing featured on Carson Daly, The Colbert Report, ESPN, and others here.

The event will be held on September 23rd at Les Deux nightclub in Hollywood, California. Tickets are $15 pre-sale and $20 at the door, with all proceeds going straight to The Tiziano Project. If you’re in the area, please check it out! We promise it’ll be a great evening, and you’ll be doing your part to support an incredibly worthwhile cause. You can learn more about the event and pre-order your tickets here: http://roozt.com/chessboxing

*** Keep In Touch: Hit up our Facebook page and Twitter! We’re constantly updating both with hot news, fresh contests and sweepstakes, blogs, and other stuff to keep you in the loop. Every now and again, we’ll just be giving stuff away to our followers, so don’t miss out! Not to mention, it’s a great way to let us know what you think. Want to see eco-friendly surfboard deals, or clothing from companies that support humanitarian initiatives? Shoot us a message! And who knows, you might even make a few new like-minded friends while you’re there.

We’re launching in August, and have hundreds of cool vendors lining up left and right. For example, just this week Sole Bicycles hopped on board, and will be offering their awesome roadbikes at insane discounts. One of our biggest pledges at ROOZT is to individually tailor your deals to what you want. For example, if you’re a dude, we won’t waste your daily alert on a mani/pedi package like some other deal sites (cough cough). The more you visit our site, the more we’ll have an idea of what you want.

Additionally, Auren Kaplan of The Social Enterprise Exchange recently wrote an amazing article on Roozt.com, that we encourage you to check out in your free time. It paints a great picture of what we’re all about and where we’re going…

Think that’s it for this time around. Don’t forget to keep checking back for the latest updates on featured products, contests, and more of our inspiring partners. All of us at ROOZT are super pumped about everything going on in the next few weeks, and we hope you are too! We’ll talk to you soon and in the meantime we’ll be hard at work getting you great deals from inspiring companies…

Much love,

CG for the ROOZT.com Team
