Keek Joins the Fight to End Hunger With ONEXONE's Million Meals Movement

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - May 15, 2014) - Keek, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: KEK) (OTCQX: KEEKF) has joined ONEXONE's Million Meals Movement to end hunger in North America. ONEXONE is dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world, and the highlight of the foundation's efforts this year is a concert that kick starts the packaging of one million meals for children in need. This event takes place at the Sony Centre in Toronto on May 23, 2014; Keek will play a major part in the social media promotion of the day.

After packaging meals on May 23, the day will cap off with an awesome, star-studded concert produced by Live Nation -- including multi-platinum band Simple Plan, reggae-pop band MAGIC!, "Alone Again" breakout star Alyssa Reid, and rapper and humanitarian Kardinal Offishall -- with proceeds benefitting the ONEXONE and Simple Plan Foundations.

Keek joins the party by leveraging the power of its social network, to gain more exposure for the Million Meals Movement. Keek will encourage its 66 million users to engage with the Movement before, during and after the event. Strategies include the creation of a Keek 'kluster' specifically for the event, and heavy promotion of the ONEXONE Keek account and its videos. Keek's involvement will culminate with the ONEXONE foundation 'live-keeking' the event.

"Social media is an integral part in the fight against hunger, because it is the fastest way to promote awareness," says Joey Adler, Founder of the ONEXONE Foundation. "We love that Keek is a video social network, since nothing can capture the energy of that day quite like video!"

The Million Meals Movement hopes to not only alleviate hunger across North America, but also spread lesser-known facts: just $1 can provide a child with a healthy breakfast, which positively impacts learning, creativity, test grades, and attendance.

Keek CEO Alexandra Cameron said, "ONEXONE has started a large-scale movement against hunger in North America -- and Keek is excited to be part of this endeavor! Keek is committed to using its platform to create awareness for worthy causes such as the Million Meals Movement and we are thrilled to be partnered with this special event."

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
