Delivery Agent Helps NBC’s TODAY Celebrate Puppy Wrangler’s Birthday with Program to Benefit Guiding Eyes for the Blind

Commerce Platform Used to Raise Awareness and Funds

, Inc., the market leader in turning audiences into customers
for leading global brands, is helping NBC’s TODAY celebrate the one-year
birthday of Wrangler, a yellow Labrador Retriever training to
become a guide dog with the help of TODAY’s anchors, staff and an
experienced puppy raiser from Guiding
Eyes for the Blind

TODAY worked with Delivery Agent to activate a commerce component for
their “Puppy with a Purpose” segment that culminated with the television
debut of a Wrangler plush puppy, now available through NBC commerce
channels including the NBC
digital store
and soon to be available through “Buy Now” Tweets. Net
proceeds from the plush go to Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

“At Guiding Eyes, we’re committed to partnering more people with
exceptional guide dogs and service dogs,” said Linda Press, vice
president of development at Guiding Eyes. “Every day I see what a
profound difference these partnerships can make. Guiding Eyes never
charges people for their dogs, so we’re grateful to all our donors, and
very appreciative of the work NBC and Delivery Agent are doing to raise
awareness and funds.”

“Wrangler has built a tremendous fan base since he first appeared on
TODAY,” said Mike Fitzsimmons, Delivery Agent CEO. “We’re thrilled NBC
and Guiding Eyes for the Blind are leveraging the Delivery Agent
platform to bring fans a connection point to this “Puppy with a Purpose”
that will help with fundraising for such a worthy cause.”
