New York City, New York – July 14, 2022– ImpactWayv™, the pioneering Social [Impact] Media Platform, proudly announced Celia Fuenzalida Del Valle as the recipient of the company’s first-ever ImpactWayv Outstanding Social Impact Award, an accolade presented live, during the exciting Miss Universo Chile competition.
As the official social media platform of Miss Universo Chile, contestants actively participated in the ‘ImpactWayv Social Impact Challenge’ throughout the competition, utilizing the ImpactWayv app to raise greater awareness of the myriad social issues they each championed to spur action from their respective followerships.
“We greatly appreciated the opportunity to partner with ImpactWayv,” remarked Keno Manzur, National Director of Miss Universe Chile. “Our contestants used the Miss Universo Chile platform to raise awareness for the work they are doing to make Chile and the world a better place. ImpactWayv is the perfect venue for them to showcase their work and to educate and inspire others to get involved in social impact projects.”
Contestants raised awareness of issues and promoted organizations related to, for example, healthcare, education, youth development, sustainability, and LGBTQ rights, sharing these topics throughout ImpactWayv’s digital network, and in doing so, driving tangible action such as fundraising and crowdsourcing to encourage hands-on participation in real-life projects that will make their communities, their country, and their world a better place for years to come.
Throughout the competition, Celia Fuenzalida Del Valle utilized the ImpactWayv platform to raise awareness for the Nancagua Hospital where she serves as a doctor. She shared stories of how working in rural communities opened her eyes to the essential services that are lacking outside of major urban areas. She also drove awareness to UN Chile and the Ocean Recovery Alliance, backing that support with important facts and figures and captivating videos.
ImpactWayv aims to be a healthier and more meaningful alternative to major social networking platforms. It operates as an entirely new kind of digital ecosystem, one focused on social good, enabling people, businesses, and nonprofits to effect, engage in and share social impact on a global scale.
Karen Talamelli Cusick, Executive Vice President of ImpactWayv, stated that, “It is an honor to work with the Miss Universo Chile organization and the fine contestants who participated in this year’s competition. These women of substance are encouraged to use their platform to benefit the people of Chile and the world. They are making a difference and ImpactWayv is proud to be a part of their efforts”.
Celia Fuenzalida Del Valle was presented with the award during the Miss Universo Chile competition by former Miss Chile, Antonia Figueroa.
"Impact Wayv is a social network that really changes lives,” Del Valle remarked. “More than an application, it is a means to publicize all the good things that we have and want to share with the world. For me it is a real honor to win this award, because it recognizes what I want to be, a person who wants to change the world"
