Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

FED RATE HIKE?

Issue

Will the Federal Reserve raise interest rates for the third time in a couple of years?

The Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates for the first time this year and the third time since December 2015 when the central bank began moving rates up from near-zero.

While a rate increase is virtually certain, economists will be looking to see whether officials bump up their forecasts for hikes over the next couple of years now that inflation and business confidence are picking up.

NEPAL NEEDS HELP

Solution

Victims need shelter, fuel, food, medicine, power, volunteer workers. Nepal's earthquake-hit capital is short on everything as friends and family members search for lost loved ones, and sort through rubble for their belongings, but the international community must provide basic needs.

The United Nations is rushing critical supplies to Nepal in the wake of the devastating earthquake that has reportedly killed more than 3,000 people and injured thousands more on Saturday, and pledged that it ready to provide any assistance needed to help survivors through these difficult times.

Goodbye and good riddance, July 2016

Idea

It’s summertime in many parts of the world, and July happens to be one of the most event-filled months.
it is said that July is unlucky for weddings, but this one was unlucky for more than couples. And this long hot summer is not over yet, folks!

While many businesses begin attracting end of the year sales, this past month brought the world death, destruction, and disasters. July 2016 will be remembered as a month that continuously stunned the people of the world with multiple shocking events.

Seven Year Itch

Issue

It is like a partner, or spouse telling you where they won't go, but refusing to tell you where they will. Today the GOP controlled Congress will possibly decide if millions of Americans will lose their healthcare. The reason we say possibly is that few folks know which version of the bill senators will be voting for.

After seven years of badmouthing the Affordable Care Act and six months of playing golf, the President and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will attempt to move a plan forward to hold a vote on repealing the Affordable Care Act.
