May 1, 2012

It’s that time of year again! Business Wire is again headed to the Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting in Omaha. As always, we’ll be selling a great item at our booth to support a great cause. This year, we’re selling commemorative Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting pins. Check them out:

Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting Commemorative Pins. Ooooh, shiny. :)

Pins will sell for $3 each, or 2 pins for $5, and all proceeds will once again benefit CASA of Douglas County, Neb. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

So if you’re at the show, stop by our booth & say “Hello”, buy a pin and support a great cause!


Get Your Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting Souvenir Pennies and Passports!

May 3, 2011

We’re just back from Omaha and the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting. It was Business Wire’s  fifth meeting as a Berkshire Hathaway company and each year seems to get better and better.

It’s safe to say that the souvenir pennies we brought to the show, run through our exclusive penny press machine, were a runaway smash hit at this year’s meeting, where we sold more than 200 sets of four commemorative coins in souvenir passport holders. (This year’s meeting theme? Planes, trains and automobiles!) We raised money for a very important charity, CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska, an organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

If you were unable to attend the event, or otherwise would like to buy a set, you’re in luck! Send us your $5 CASA donation in the mail and in return, you’ll get a set of all four smashed pennies in a souvenir passport holder. To order, email BHMeeting@businesswire.com and let us know how many sets you want and where we should send them to, and then put a check (made payable to: CASA) in the mail to:

Pennies From Omaha

April 28, 2010

It’s nearly that time again:  The 2010 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting is this coming Saturday, May 1.  I will be attending this year’s meeting, along with nine other Business Wire people including our CEO, Cathy Baron Tamraz.  And once more, Business Wire is providing a fun item for other attendees to pick up and help support a good cause.

This year, visitors to Omaha can visit Business Wire and spend a dollar to smash a penny! Our specially designed penny press will allow you to create a souvenir penny with any of four fun designs, including images of Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger.  Each souvenir penny, which will include a commemorative folder, will cost $1.  All proceeds will once again benefit CASA of Douglas County, Neb. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

So come to our booth and spend $1, $2 or even $4 to smash four pennies and support a great cause.  While you’re there, say hello to our staff and find out more about how Business Wire continues to lead the industry in making the humble press release a crucial communications tool.

Read the entire press release on these fun souvenirs here.  I’ll also be tweeting from the event under Business Wire’s handle; you can follow at http://twitter.com/BusinessWire.  I, and everyone here at Business Wire, look forward to seeing you there!

Berkshire Hathaway Trading Cards for Charity

Just back from Omaha and the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting. It was Business Wire’s third meeting as a Berkshire Hathaway company and each year seems to get better and better.

In addition to getting to talk with so many Berkshire shareholders, this year we created a set of limited edition trading cards that we sold to raise money for a very important charity, CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska, an organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

The cards (six different ones) feature photos of Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger and BW’s Cathy Baron Tamraz, along with quotes from each. We’re proud to say that so far we’ve raised $5,000 for the cause. We do have a few more sets available that you can order if you weren’t able to get to Omaha.

To order your set, please send a $10 check for each set to Business Wire (it’s fully tax-deductible – we’ll send you a receipt) with a self-addressed stamped return envelope to:

The cards are dated to mark this year’s BH shareholders meeting on May 3, 2008.

With these cards, we’re raising money for CASA of Douglas County, Nebraska. CASA of Douglas County, NECASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is a charitable organization that provides a voice for abused and neglected children within the court system.

We have a limited number of these cards, so they are available only at our booth at this time and on a first-come basis.
