CPXample, a philanthropic initiative of digital media holding company, CPXi, was founded in 2007. CPXi is a global digital media holding company committed to connecting consumers with brands. Just as important to CPXi is the commitment to giving back. From the personal philanthropic efforts of our CEO and other executives, to our collective practice of providing resources focused on using the internet for social good, we believe that with power comes responsibility, and have made giving back part of our corporate DNA, thus creating CPXample.com.
Through CPXample, CPXi has donated hundreds of millions of online ad impressions to causes including SaveDarfur, LiveEarth, The American Diabetes Association and Children International. Additionally, in the lead-up to the 2008 presidential election, CPXample worked with Russell Simmons’ Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN) to produce a star-studded voter registration PSA called “Vote for it! ’08.” In addition to absorbing all costs associated with production of the video, CPXample donated a significant online campaign to driving traffic to the video, resulting in more than one million views in less than 2 weeks. Since its inception, CPXample continues to donate millions of online ad impressions.
CPXi CEO, Mike Seiman, has been a long-time supporter and benefactor of Children International. In addition to sponsoring 13 children personally, Mike encouraged CPXi executives to join him in funding, planning and executing the construction of the B.U.D.S Community Center in Guayaquil, Ecuador in 2010. The community center continues to be a safe haven for over 5,000 local youth, providing them with a dentist office, small medical clinic, computer lab, library, small conference room and playground.
In addition to the center in Guayaquil, Ecuador, CPXi is also involved with Children International in Colombia. Mike Seiman and other CPXi executives joined together to help create the CPXi Community Center, due to open June 2014. Additionally, CPXi employees started a companywide initiative to promote child sponsorships and raise money to fund the CPXi Discovery Center, a place where children can utilize resources like computers, printers, and gain access to the Internet.
Through CPXample, CPXi employees also give back in-office. Whether it be blood drives, food drives, coat drives or volunteering with an organization for a day, all of us here at CPXample are dedicated to giving back any way we can.
