FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SEATTLE, April 15, 2020 —Jage Media, a cannabis business event and media firm, has pledged to donate five dollars of every MJ Unpacked Online event registration to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO, until further notice. The state-specific, 3D, virtual MJ Unpacked Online summits kick off with a Colorado-focused event May 12-14, followed by summits focused on California, Oregon, and Nevada/Arizona, with more to be announced in the near future.
“It has always been part of our business plan and philosophy to have a social initiative,” said Jage Media CEO and co-founder, George Jage. “I think we, and quite honestly all businesses, should work to show a strong sense of corporate responsibility from day one of operation. As we are quickly learning, because of the Coronavirus outbreak, we are all part of a fragile ecosystem from a health and economic standpoint. This donation is one way we can help make an impact in a safer, more secure future.”
The Denver online summit kicks off with a special COVID-19 Update from BDS Analytics CEO Roy Bingham that will provide attendees an update on the impacts of the COVID-19 on Colorado market sales, consumer behaviors and trends.
