Philanthropist and branding strategist Jérôme Montigny works with a number of community and social movements to further opportunities for social influencers to give back and make a difference. Thanks to his efforts, thousands have been encouraged to have a greater awareness of and willingness to help those most in need.
Jérôme Montigny has broad experience with charitable and community organizations, beginning with his work as one of the early adopters of the The Tony Robbins Foundation, whose mission is “to empower individuals and organizations to make a significant difference in the quality of life of people often forgotten.” For over two decades, Mr. Montigny has championed this mindset and worked to use his business connections, experience and reach to help others. In the age of influencers & social media, his efforts have become even more far reaching with greater impact.
One notable area of contribution is Jérôme Montigny’s work with the The International Basket Brigade, a volunteer-led program that helps feed those in need through donated baskets of necessary items and food. Montingy’s belief in the power of helping others is echoed in The International Basket Brigade’s vision of helping each caring person to have a bigger impact on many others in the community. As such, he has found dynamic ways to combine luxury brand power with the efforts of the program to give back to those in need.
The Global Youth Leadership movement is another area of focus for Mr. Montigny’s ongoing efforts to not only give back, but to inspire others to give back to their community. The Global Youth Leadership movement provides leadership opportunities to youths, and enables them to personally grow and find ways to meaningfully impact in their communities. Jérôme Montigny similarly helps find new, innovative ways for brands with millions of consumers to both give back, and impact those seeking to give back to others.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to help those most in need by using my business acumen and social media expertise,” Mr. Montigny proudly states whenever asked why he invests himself so much in helping others. “I’m fortunate to find tremendous fulfilment just knowing I can have a positive impact on others; I hope to encourage everyone to find the same purpose in giving back to their community.”
We are pleased to award Jérôme Montigny with the Good Samaritan Award, as someone who goes above and beyond business to do more to make the world a better place.
