Well, we didn’t know what would happen, but we had NO IDEA over 150 of you would walk through those brewery doors. We have tons to celebrate! In attendance was about 60% industry leaders and 40% community leaders. This curated group of creative minds and open hearts fostered incredible conversation and many cheery beers. Most importantly, we supported the GES Land Trust! Happy dancing yet? We are!
If you didn’t get a chance to make a mala or drink a beer this time, don’t fret, we have more of these coming, with fun venues, unexpected entertainment and a growing list of like-minded cannabis do-gooders.
Stay tuned for the announcement of our next social, slated to take place early part of 2019.
We aren’t stopping with good times and good vibes. Cannabis Doing Good is a platform to create opportunities for cannabis and community to collaborate, to inspire new ways of people, planet and human engagement, and to showcase those companies that are doing good.
Here’s what to expect from us:
More Socials! (obviously). We recognize there is no neutral space for cannabis and community members to meet. We also recognize there still exists a lot of barriers for nonprofits and community groups to partner with the cannabis sector. So we created CDG Socials – a place to educate and collaborate – to de-stigmatize the industry and to change the hearts and minds of communities still cautious to work with cannabis. The best part is that we can to DO GOOD while talking about doing good. Our goal is to host a CDG Social each quarter and to launch CDG Socials across the country. Have an idea or want to help us host the next one? Get in touch.
Awards. There isn’t a platform for companies doing good to tell their story or be recognized for the impact their making. Or for companies who aspire to do good, to see examples of what it could look like. So, we’ve created the Cannabis Doing Good Awards – to be launched next year. You grow organic cannabis? Provide 1 million meals to your local community? Educate on the real risks and benefits of medical cannabis? You champion workers rights? Hire equitably? All Cannabis Doing Good. We haven’t even scratched the surface of the good this industry is creating.
Cannabis Doing Good Campaign. A video marketing campaign designed to highlight all the ways the cannabis sector is driving positive political, social and economic impact. We will be dismantling Drug War propaganda, one story – one video – at a time. This matters because more positive stories we can tell, the more good we can do. AND we are launching at this year’s MJBiz Con – so be on the lookout for first ever video release. Want to tell your CDG story? Let’s talk.
