TSŪ.CO NAMED MAKE-A-WISH SOUTHERN FLORIDA’S ‘MEDIA PARTNER OF THE YEAR’ 

Honor Bestowed at Nonprofit’s Annual Donor Celebration

Miami, FL -- Tsū.co, an invite-only social media platform that pays royalties to users for the content they create, was honored by Make-A-Wish Southern Florida as its “Media Partner of the Year” at a recent donor appreciation event at Jungle Island. 

The social network, which has more than four million users, was recognized for helping the nonprofit organization reach new audiences and monetize the content it produces. To date, the regional Make-A-Wish chapter has gained nearly 25,000 followers, been the beneficiary of several wish-related promotions, and raised more than $2,500 by sharing its photos, videos, and web links via Tsū.co.

“We’re indebted to Tsū for helping take our social media efforts to a new level,” said Norman Wedderburn, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida president & CEO. “Their site enables us to share that the impact we have for children and families isn’t just nice, it’s a necessary infusion of hope, strength, and joy into lives that have been seriously impacted by a child’s illness.”

Added Sebastian Sobczak, Tsū.co founder and CEO: "Considering the number of worthy candidates and the world-class publishers and conglomerates who previously received the ‘Media Partner of the Year’ award, it is truly humbling as an 11-month-old media startup to receive this prestigious honor. It is so rewarding to know that our platform makes it uniquely possible for people to view children’s wishes through Make-A-Wish and make them come true. Our hearts go out to the children and families Make-A-Wish works with, and we look forward to continuing to help make their lives a little brighter."

Tsū.co is successfully disrupting social media to make regular individuals profitable participants by funneling 90 percent of its ad revenue back to its content creators. Nonprofit organizations such as Make-A-Wish have begun taking advantage of this additional revenue stream that enables them to generate funds by simply posting videos, pictures and other content.

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has granted more than 10,000 wishes to children who have life-threatening medical conditions. Wish kids most often ‘wish to be’ (something), ‘wish to meet’ (someone), ‘wish to go’ (somewhere), or ‘wish to have’ (something) and the nonprofit organization makes this happen for the child and his/her entire family at no cost to them.

The Southern Florida chapter grants a wish every 16 hours, at an average cost of $5,000, and is committed to making a dream come true for every medically eligible child in its territory, which includes 13 Florida counties and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  It completes its mission without federal or state funding, raising money through corporate sponsorships, special events, foundation grants, and individual contributions.
