Plexus Worldwide’s Global Giving Day

Employees, Brand Ambassadors, and Customers volunteered to combat food insecurity on September 22. Plexus Worldwide (Plexus®), a leading direct-selling health and wellness company, motivated people around the world to step up and volunteer during the Plexus Global Giving Day, held on September 22. Brand Ambassadors, Customers, and employees in five countries were encouraged to support local nonprofits that provide assistance to families affected by hunger.

“Plexus cares deeply about children and families in all the communities we serve worldwide, so we mobilized our teams and encouraged our Brand Ambassadors to join forces with customers and serve together as a united community. We are so appreciative to everyone who took time out of their busy day to contribute to those in need. The outpouring of support gives me tremendous pride because it reflects a shared sense of responsibility.” said Tarl Robinson, Plexus CEO and Founder.

In addition, Plexus donated 15,000 USD to food banks in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the United States where Global Giving Day participants volunteered.  At the corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, over 140 employees, including company leaders and the executive team, packed food boxes and distributed food at St. Mary’s Food Bank in Phoenix.  Collectively, Scottsdale team members volunteered 580 hours to St. Mary’s Food Bank the week of September 20. This annual Week of Service event is something team members look forward to as yet another way to promote a One Plexus spirit.

“In our mission to ignite Hope, Health, and Happiness, we support all efforts to combat food insecurity, so families don’t have to choose between paying the electric bill and putting food on the table,” said Alec Clark, President, and Founder. “Making a difference is ingrained in our culture because we share a commitment to help those in need through financial contributions, volunteer efforts, and in-kind donations to community nonprofits that give families a helping hand during difficult times.”

Plexus encourages a culture of giving, providing 16 hours of paid volunteer time to every team member. But many employees give far more of their time and participate in donation drives that support a variety of nonprofits and community groups. 360 Magazine is proud to be associated with brands that volunteer worldwide to help the community.





September 15, 2017 — Hollywood, CA — Just one week before embarking on a North American tour, Los Angeles-based band Parade of Lights share a brand new song, “Victorious” [Astralwerks]: LISTEN HERE.


“Victorious” is the second of two new tracks Parade of Lights have shared as a follow up to their 2015 debut album Feeling Electric. The first single,”Touch,” was released earlier this summer. Baeble wrote, “‘Touch’ is charismatic in its hook-packed chorus and instrumentals that make you want to dance.” Idolator agreed, noting its “jaunty synths and jangly guitars” and claiming “if you like Bleachers and WALK THE MOON, this is the song for you,” while Earmilk called it “an ’80s tinged, synth and hook-laden tune that evokes visions of palm tree lined streets and Instagram-worthy sunsets.” “Victorious” and “Touch” are a taste of what’s yet to come from Parade of Lights.


In support of their new music, Parade of Lights are heading out on a North American tour with the Wild Club. This run will bring the band to cities across the U.S. and conclude with a show at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on October 4. Full routing can be found below, and tickets are on sale now. Check here for more details.

Painting an artful pastiche of pop, alternative, shoegaze, and electronic, Parade of Lights have quietly become a phenomenon since the release of Feeling Electric. The title track featured in EA Sports’ FIFA 16 and racked up 4.5 million Spotify streams, while “Golden” cracked 7.2 million Spotify streams and played during high-profile spots for the Super Bowl®, NBC Winter Olympics, the Academy Awards®, and the GRAMMY® Awards. Meanwhile, they continue to make fans move on tour, having sold out numerous headline dates between sharing stages with Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors, AWOLNATION, Fitz & The Tantrums, and more. Moreover, the band’s vision remains solely their own: not only do they write and produce their songs, but they also produce lyric videos and social content and even handle graphic design for online and merchandising.

Duo Will Join JOHNNYSWIM On European & North American Tour Dates


Run Includes October 19 Concert At The Novo In L.A. And

November 6 & 7 Shows At NYC’s Irving Plaza


“A perfectly balanced duo. They both have incredible skills. They both have wonderful voices. The harmonies are fabulous. And they play the heck out of the guitar…” – NPR Music

Following the success of their 2015 debut album, Nothing But The Silence – which has racked up more than 10 million cumulative streams worldwide – Striking Matches return with Shameless, set for release on September 22 via Capitol Records. The four original songs, produced by Kennedy Karate (Børns), will give fans a taste of the duo’s forthcoming album, which is due out in 2018.


Striking Matches said, “Our new music originates from the two years we spent on the road touring our first album. During that time, we changed as musicians, and as people. Out of it came the need to create something that felt sonically unique to us. Pushing ourselves as creators was terrifying and exhilarating, but ultimately necessary. We hope it inspires our listeners to step outside of what is comfortable, in order to progress. With this new music, we needed to be honest, we needed to be brave, and we needed to be shameless.”


The duo – comprising Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis – will be joining JOHNNYSWIM on the “Take The World Tour,” which launches on September 19 in Amsterdam. The North American leg kicks off at The Fillmore in San Francisco on October 18. It includes a show at the Novo in Los Angeles (October 19) and a two-night stand and New York City’s Irving Plaza (November 6 & 7). See below for itinerary.

Nothing But The Silence,which was produced by T Bone Burnett,won acclaim in the U.S. and abroad. NPR’s “World Café” hailed Striking Matches as an “Artist to Watch” andBuzzfeed named the duo as one of the “Artists You Need In Your Life.” USA Today said, “Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis give off sparks as singers and writers, but they’re even hotter guitarists. Incendiary.” American Songwriter observed, “these songs crackle and sizzle, walking on a tightrope between pop, rock, country and blues.” Nothing But The Silence debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes UK Country Chart and several tracks were featured on BBC Radio 2’s playlist. The duo sold-out multiple headline tours of the U.K. and took International Act of the Year honors at the British Country Music Awards in 2015.


Zimmermann grew up outside Philadelphia and had mastered the clarinet, violin and guitar before middle school. Davis, who is from Atlanta, began playing guitar at an early age, inspired by the music he heard at home – Sam Cooke, Petula Clark, Eric Clapton, Otis Redding, Ray Charles and Steely Dan. The two began working together when a professor at Belmont University in Nashville paired them up for class projects. Soon they were penning originals together. Nine of their songs were performed in the first four seasons of the hit television show “Nashville.” In addition to numerous headline outings, Striking Matches have opened for Train and toured the U.S. with The Secret Sisters on a co-headline tour.
