Digital Wish just enlisted Jordan Bone, professional NBA Point Guard for the Detroit Pistons as Digital Wish's spokesperson! Jordan, and his brother Josh Bone (Coach UTenn) will be putting out a video challenge to the cities of Detroit, Nashville, and Knoxville, to raise donations to supply hotspots and laptops to children-in-need. It's a message of equity of opportunity for all. We're looking for an accomplished writer who can capture the voice of Jordan, Digital Wish, and the #N0GAS brand.
This is a very public project and the first time we will be doing scaled press for an initiative. The NBA celebrity involvement of Jordan Bone will escalate the message and help us achieve our mission to solve the digital divide.

We had to cancel this project due to an internal shift in project priorities. Jim was very responsive.
