Easter Bunnies prefer MadBomber!

Easter is a time for laying eggs. Mad Bomber likes laying eggs in our Global Community; Golden Eggs! It is time we keep you posted on some of them so that you realize that by supporting Mad Bomber you are indirectly helping make our world a better place.

Christchurch and Japan Disasters

Hats keeping survivors warm. Mad Bomber is distributing 1000 warm hats through the Save the Children NZ network. Mad Bomber hats will go to families left homeless after the Christchurch Earthquake. Similarly negotiations for distribution in Japan are underway to donate hats to cold and needy survivors there. How can you Help? Find out through Save the Children by clicking on [this NZ link] or click [this Japan link].

An Orphan’s Wish

Hats donated to Chinese orphans with special needs.  An Orphan’s Wish is a group of dedicated volunteers striving to improve the lives of orphans in China.

CGT - 2010 Innovation, Business & Technology Awards

Over the past few years, doing business as usual just hasn’t cut it. To maximize growth opportunities in today’s economy, consumer goods companies must think outside of the box. CGT’s 2010 Innovation, Business & Technology Awards recognize 15 consumer goods companies that have done just that in one of the five award categories. And guess what! Mad Bomber made the grade, getting the SMB Award. The SMB Award is presented to small to mid-size consumer goods firm (under $1 billion in annual revenue) that is best utilizing technology to achieve substantial growth in size and/or revenue:

Trading in China since 1978, Mad Bomber is the original and world’s largest Bomber hat manufacturer. Aside from promoting free enterprise in China, it switched to using recycled fabrics and products, organic cloth, vegetable or soy dyes and low impact accessories while still supplying cool new products to customers in 2010. The company also effectively uses new technology to streamline and radically change customer service, Web site, cloud computing, social media, marketing, etc.

MadBomber donates 129 hats to Avera

January 20, 2011

MadBomber donated 129 Bomber hats to Avera for distribution in their mission work on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Indian Reservations in South Dakota.

Avera ambulance crews and patients sure benefit from some cool looking warm winter hats. Recently the temparature there was 22 below zero, and a little colder with wind chill. They already had more snow than their annual average, and  have more than two months (and the heaviest months) of winter snowfall ahead.

Although the actual races might be cancelled due to lack of snow in Northern Maine this year, Brent is taking the kids out there to meet the teams that will persevere! At Mad Bomber we do not have failure in our vocabulary, at worst we just pretend there is a race! In any case, it will be fun and we will be there!

NZVCA annual conference

Monsieur Reynolds with Monsieur Vieux from Red Herring

Monsieur Reynolds with Monsieur Vieux from Red Herring

How come Air New Zealand can keep their bathrooms clean inflight and United Airlines can’t??   What great wines they offer even in economy class with real glasses and when I asked for a Pinot Grigio the steward said “wait just a minute mate and I’ll grab one from business class” and he came back with a business class wineglass as well.  Then peruse the movie selection and you’ll find the deepest movie selection in the Air.  Chinese, Hollywood, Korean, European films and TV shows plus lots of specials available in every seatback.  Food, wine and service was great.  Please bring Air New Zealand to the domestic USA so our legacy carriers can learn how to take care of us poor passengers again.

Thanks to Hal Josephson for organizing our government sponsored trip to New Zealand and to all the fine towns and cities.   We landed in Napier the first day, it is a fine art-deco city.  Visited the Craggy Range Winery and others for a fine lunch with Rose.  First night’s dinner started with a liquid tour and lovely dinner at the Barrel Room with a very interesting

group of folks: ex CEO of Saatchi Australasia Kim Wicksteed, a very knowledgeable and cool guy. NZ Entrepreneur and CEO of Xero, Rod Drury. Founders and social media web company Mogul, Matt & Georgia Miller. Local China export consultant, Jim Poppelwell, a guy who lived in China for years…

Thanks to FRST/TechNZ team and the NZVCA annual conference in Auckland as well as Creative HQ and Icehouse for sponsoring/hosting us in style.

Thank you Mayor Kerry Prendergast for making time to hear our thoughts on increasing New Zealand’s exports.  A good politician is a good listener and she’s one good gal.  We can’t say enough of how impressed we are with the talents in this small but beautiful country.
