Does the calendar really say October? Are you thinking the same thing we are...how is that possible?
As we collectively stare down the remaining months of the year, we'd love to bring you up to date on what our Visible teams have been up to, and projects we've been working on for our members, teammates, and community. In same cases, we'd love to get you involved!
GLAAD's Spirit Day
Thursday, Oct. 21st is a day when the world goes purple to stand up for LGBTQ youth and against bullying for GLAAD's Spirit Day! This year, Visible was proud to be a national sponsor of Spirit Day! Our teams, partners at Verizon, and community partners all teamed up to wear purple for LBGTQ youth and show our support.
Spotlight Your Town
Visible is proud to partner with SeriesFest and National Geographic to support a first year initiative, Spotlight Your Town, which aims to empower independent creators to use their art form to spotlight the timely political and social justice issues happening in an American city or town.
The final deadline for submissions is Nov. 3. The SeriesFest programming team will review each docu-series submission and work with National Geographic to identify three finalists that fit the company's mission and slate of projects. The winning artist(s) will receive a $20,000 grant to be applied to their production as well as an opportunity to pitch to National Geographic Documentary Films and unscripted teams in 1:1 curated meetings as well as receive a 6-month mentorship with renowned producer and director Steve James. Additionally, Visible will issue a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization that aligns with the cause of the winning artists' concept.
Visible Named Wireless Carrier of the Year
Visible is honored to have been named Wireless Carrier of the Year by the Mobile Breakthrough awards. Visible has been recognized as a "breakthrough" leader in the wireless category for the way it has reimagined mobile technologies.

Mess With the Bull, You'll Get the Horns (and fun)
For those of you living in the Austin area, you have seen Visible show up in a big way for the remainder of the year. To prove it, we’ve set up a mechanical bull to demonstrate that unlike other companies, Visible doesn’t take our customers for a wild ride. You can test your bull riding skills at COTA, and Austin FC. Just sign a waiver and saddle up! Everyone who rides the bull will receive an emailed GIF to share on social media. One last chance to stop by, say howdy, and enter to win free swag and Beats Headphones.
Look for the Visible bull at these upcoming events:
Austin FC FútBull - Q2 Stadium
November 3rd - H-E-B Plaza, 10414 McKalla Pl, ATX, 78758
Visible Merch Store
Many of us are revamping our closets and wardrobes these days, so why not stock up on fashionable items from our Visible merch store? With notes of blue and Visible’s iconic emoticons, the face of the brand, some of these fashion statements could leap from the website and onto the runway! Ok, probably not, but a brand team can dream! It’s not just clothing and accessories available in Visible’s merch store, but lifestyle items and OMG deals. Truly, there’s something for everyone (including your four-legged friends)!
