C Spire Wireless Cuts Communication Clutter For Needy Florida Family on Designing Spaces™ on Lifetime TV
Wireless carrier provides personalized technology advice and devices to family on “Spaces of Hope - Rebuilding Together” special makeover series
(Pompano Beach, FL – April 9, 2013) C Spire Wireless™, the only wireless provider in the U.S. that offers personalized services, recently joined forces with the popular home improvement show Designing Spaces™ airing on Lifetime Television to help with the communications and technology needs of a Florida family receiving a home makeover.
Designing Space travels around the country redefining and redesigning spaces by incorporating design trends, do-it-yourself projects and step by step home improvements. The episode featuring C Spire will air on Lifetime TV on Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 a.m. EST/PST and is the second part of a three-episode “Spaces of Hope- Rebuilding Together” series.
When the Broward County Sheriff’s Office found Florida resident Joy Stewart and her four grandchildren living in a run-down home with little food, no heat, no running water and no electricity, they asked the community for help. Stewart had rescued the children from the New York foster care system after her daughter was no longer able to care for them due to drug addiction problems. Since then, Stewart has struggled to keep the family afloat due to limited financial resources and poor living conditions.
Rebuilding Together of Broward County, a local affiliate of the nation’s largest non-profit group committed to revitalizing homes and communities, teamed up with Designing Spaces™ to renovate a foreclosed home signed over to Stewart.
During the episode, Chancey Wilson, brand manager for C Spire Wireless, meets up with the Designing Spaces™ host and Stewart on location to help the family with their communications and technology needs.
“With more than 2 million apps now available for smartphones and tablets and with more than 1,200 new apps debuting every day, the discovery and personalization process can be difficult, challenging and time consuming as consumers use these devices to read, watch movies, listen to music and otherwise manage our personal and work lives,” Wilson said.
One technology solution from C Spire that Wilson shared with the family is called SCOUT and it helps solve the information overload by providing personalized app, movie, book and music recommendations with convenient links to download content. The company also used the app to help develop a series of personalized app packs for each member of the Stewart family.
Wilson also introduced the Stewart family to NEWSLINK, a daily personalized news and information delivery service that finds news and information that is relevant to individuals and delivers it daily across multiple devices.
Finally, the company shared its plans to soon introduce the world’s first comprehensive online content personalization tool called Vu. The service is simple, easy to navigate, free to use and works on any device that has access to the Internet – tablets, smartphones, laptops and desktops. Vu follows users on their online journey and learns about their personal lifestyle, interests and delivers relevant, personalized content from all of their favorite sources. The company donated two tablets to the family.
“We’re thrilled to have C Spire Wireless on board as a valued partner in this special series. Their generous gifts of technology to the family will definitely help improve the quality of their day-to-day lives,” says Lysa Liemer, Designing Spaces™ on Lifetime Executive VP of Programming and Chief Operating Officer.
