2012 CSR Awards: Blog


Winner: Amway – Amway One by One Campaign for Children Blog


The One by One blog started in 2006 as a way to increase transparency, converse with supporters and showcase the impact the organization makes for children around the world. With such a large audience, in 2011 the Amway PR team set out to infuse a worldwide perspective by showcasing hundreds of individual One by One stories on the blog. First though, Amway had to move from an outdated blog platform to a new one that could better incorporate photos and videos while managing multiple languages. Spreading the word to a variety of stakeholders via Twitter and Facebook—and recruiting a team of 14 advocates to serve as guest authors, the blog became a hit with international contributors, as the number of posts increased from outside the U.S. and Canada by 57%. Better yet, the blog has piqued the interest of Amway executives, who see compelling proof points of the value of citizenship to the company. —RD

Fast Fact: Seven internal Amway teams use the One by One blog as a source of content.
