The Moses Project
“I said back in 2000 that I was the world’s greatest athlete, and now I get the chance to try and prove it. I still love to compete. We’re going to have a lot of fun, and raise a lot of money for charity.” Ed Moses, stud.
Someone finally got it right. TV programming that is inspiring, heartfelt, thought provoking and void of egos…and the entertainment company giving it to us? Mojo Marketing & Media – the first and only of its kind whose underlying mission is to be an engine of awareness and encourage people to fully develop their personal social conscience, take action and get involved in making a positive difference.
The first show to come from the Mojo peeps is ‘The Moses Project.’ It features Olympic Gold Medalist and professional golfer Ed Moses as the sexy host and competitor for the new show that pits him against the hottest athletes and celebrities in different competitions each week…the kicker? All the money raised goes directly to charity…more than a million bucks to be exact.
The ‘Moses Project’ is just the first in a series of anticipated new programs from the company founded by Moses and Joy Stephenson. “There couldn’t be a better time than now for Mojo. But unlike other ‘feel-good’ fundraising projects that are oftentimes short-lived, Mojo is committed to ongoing efforts to benefit charities through innovative and engaging entertainment projects utilizing both mainstream and new media channels,” said company founder and president, Stephenson.
Mojo will produce original, compelling family-friendly content – including music, movies, sports, docudramas, concerts and reality-based content – that spreads the word about what organizations can do for communities and individuals and what communities and individuals can do for these organizations.
“Our first venture, ‘The Moses Project,’ is a great example of the entertaining and original work Mojo will produce,” said Moses, “As an athlete and Olympian who loves to compete, I can think of nothing more thrilling than putting it all on the line against other athletes and celebrities to benefit charity.”
