Grom Social’s COPPA-Compliant App Gives Kids Beachfront Pass as Marks Makes Waves
BOCA RATON, FL – July 12, 2021 – Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: GROM) a provider of safe social media for kids under 13 years old, today unveiled Caroline Going for the Gold Week, a weeklong celebration of Caroline Marks, the app’s lead influencer and representative of the very first US Women’s Surfing Team heading to the Tokyo Olympics in surfing’s debut as an official sport. The centerpiece of the initiative features 19-year-old Marks providing daily updates from the Olympics as she documents her journey exclusively on Grom Social www.gromsocial.com, giving Grom users one-of-a-kind access in her journey to capture the gold.
Grom will feature the specially themed content from July 26-30 and offer over 36 pieces of exclusive content. In addition to updates from Japan, Marks will also offer surfing tips, discuss her best friend and participate in fun interactive games like a rapid 20-second challenge that Grom users can play and share as well.
As ambassador for Grom Social – the brainchild of her older brother, Zach, who’s now 20 – Caroline aims to encourage kids everywhere to recognize the importance of being safe on the Internet and on social media, while promoting the benefits of physical fitness and athleticism. Zach created Grom when he was 11, after his parents denied his pleas to be on social media. With their encouragement and family teamwork, the Marks family created Grom – now an app – to protect kids from the dangers of social media.
“It’s an incredible honor to represent the United States in the very first surfing competition ever at the Summer Olympics and I’m so excited to bring my Grom followers along for the journey,” explains Caroline. “Even better, I hope to inspire others to achieve their dreams through a combination of safety, hard work and dedication.”
