Last night, Bumble, the woman-first social networking app with over 66 million users worldwide, threw a Bumble BFF event hosted by The Kehoe Sisters at Iveagh Garden Hotel.
The Bee Together event was part of Bumble’s global #AskingForAFriend campaign championing real friendship and spearheaded by Bumble ambassador, Jameela Jamil.
Bumble is focusing the campaign on normalising the need to form new friendships throughout life and supporting women to feel empowered and safe in doing so.
Research conducted for the campaign has revealed that one in four people in Ireland feel like they are growing apart from their friends, so Bumble BFF teamed up with the Kehoe sisters for a special event.
The event helped to ignite conversations around loneliness and encourage new friendships to be formed.
Bumble understand how loneliness is an issue that needs to be tackled and are making moves to do so with activations such as Bee Together.
Ashley, Claudine and Emma Kehoe are not just sisters, they’re BFFs who support each other in everything they do.
The trio hosted the evening in Dublin’s city centre to bring people together, make connections and celebrate new friendships.
Once guests had a chance to grab a drink and mingle, the iconic trio came together to chat about all things friendship.
They recounted personal stories, shared their tips on confidence and positivity and also touched on Bumble’s #AskingForAFriend research in Ireland, discussing the topic of loneliness.
As part of the evening, tarot card reader Penelope Austin offered advice on what the future holds for guests, a nod to the astrology filter within Bumble which allows users to filter matches based on star signs.
