Hispanic Heritage Month with Coca-Cola #OrgullosaDeSer

This is part of a sponsored campaign with DiMe Media and Coca-Cola. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

What’s in a family name? Our family is Worley but my last name by birth is Vega. My kids are quite aware of their Hispanic heritage, as they spend lots of time around my side of the family. During Hispanic Heritage Month Coca-Cola is making Latinos feel prouder than ever about their heritage by celebrating one of their biggest sources of pride and evidence of heritage—their last name.

Coca-Cola has been a part of so many of the important moments in Hispanic families’ lives and it wants to continue making new memories with us. It was the only drink other than water we ever drank growing up in East L.A.  This is why Coca-Cola is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, to unite families through their last name and empower them to share the story of why their family name makes them unique and #OrgullosoDeSer #[InsertYourLastName]. We discussed what it means being Latino and my son decided to make the video below.

Coca-Cola created a unique film that embraces and touches upon feelings of unity and pride that come from our last names. Coca-Cola’s Heritage Tattoo Cans inspired moments of surprise and delight and celebrated the depth, variety and passion of Latino culture. The film also reflects the power of family, culture, community and history, by bringing people together in celebration of their heritage and unique family stories.

You and your family can visit coke.com/OrgullosoDeSer and purchase a Share a Coke contour bottle personalized with your last names to share that pride with the world. These would make great birthday or Christmas presents.
