LiveHive and Other Bay Area Startups Join Forces to Benefit Toys for Tots

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LiveHive, Inc., the industry's most comprehensive sales acceleration platform, today launched its second annual #SalesTips4Tots campaign – a unique social media holiday campaign to benefit the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. For every sales tip tweeted with the hashtag #salestips4tots, LiveHive has pledged to donate a new toy to the Toys for Tots program.

In addition, LiveHive announced that this year it has expanded the campaign and is inviting local startups to participate to increase donations for less fortunate children in the Bay Area. The following companies have already committed to a monetary donation or the equivalent amount in new toys to join this year's campaign:

* BigEngage.com
* Datanyze
* JuiceBox Energy, Inc.
* Rule of Three
* Wellocity Wellness

"Last year LiveHive received hundreds of tweets and donated a generous number of new toys to Toys for Tots," said Suresh Balasubramanian, CEO of LiveHive, Inc. "This year we hope to achieve even more and demonstrate how small companies can make a big difference by working together and tapping into a larger social community."

"The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy, a message of hope to less fortunate children," said Staff Sergeant Daniel Little, Santa Clara County chapter coordinator for Toys for Tots 2015. "With a community of businesses joining together to provide support for our program, we can spread that message even farther this holiday season."

Local companies embrace holiday cause





"Being able to spread holiday cheer is something everyone can support," said Lloyd Jacob, CEO of BigEngage.com. "BigEngage.com is glad to join the campaign and do more for our local Toys for Tots chapter."

"We loved the idea of teaming up with other local startups to make a bigger impact this holiday season. Toys for Tots is a great foundation, and we are absolutely thrilled to be involved," said Ilya Semin, CEO of Datanyze.

"JuiceBox Energy is glad to participate with our local business community to raise awareness – and more toys – for local children in need," said Neil Maguire, CEO of JuiceBox Energy, Inc. "The US Marine Corps has built a long-lasting and beneficial program with Toys for Tots, and the program has special meaning to me."

"Toys for Tots relies on the local community for success," said Hilary Wolfe, co-founder and creative director, Rule of Three. "We're happy to partner with other Bay Area startups to help make this year's program even more successful."

"Wellocity Wellness is pleased to join and help do something positive for the community. This type of campaign also supports our own commitment to enhance employee wellness. Giving back just feels good," said Suzanne Lai, vice president of sales and customer success at Wellocity Wellness.

The #salestips4tots campaign will end Monday, December 14, with a toy event pickup, including partners and local Marines, at LiveHive's San Jose offices. Bay Area startups interested in joining the campaign can email jennifer@livehive.com for more information.
