The Power To Do More – Inspired Gift Giving

Dell is committed to helping customers do and achieve more; with Dell products, users are able to pursue their dreams, passions and experience true success. This holiday season, Dell introduces the #Inspire 100, a compilation of leading influencers in entrepreneurship, philanthropy, education and media who use technology to empower and inspire others.

“The #Inspire 100 are innovative community and industry leaders who use technology to make a difference in the world,” explained Fara Howard, Dell executive director of North America Consumer and Small Office Marketing. “This group of thinkers, designers and risk takers contribute to positive change, while helping others pursue their passions and dreams.”

The #Inspire 100 is part of Dell’s “Inspired Gifting” holiday campaign, which encourages shoppers to “give the gift of inspiration.” As exemplified in the television ads “The Girl Who Could Fly” and “The Boy Who Captured The Stars,” Dell is asking users to share what’s inspiring them and how technology helps them explore their hobbies and achieve their goals. Users can share video links, songs, photos and more at the Inspire app on Dell’s Facebook page.
