FirstView Fans + Elmore SPCA = A Win for the Animals

Posted on July 12, 2011 · Posted in General

Our Fan Appreciation Event on Facebook recently wrapped up with a donation of $1,000 and supplies to the Elmore SPCA in Peru, New York.  Those who followed or participated in the event know that we offered to pledge $1 for each fan of our Facebook page on June 19th, 2011.  Within 3 weeks of starting, we had reached our goal of 1,000 fans.

Social media was the perfect way to make this event happen as the goal was really two-fold:

  1. Make a donation to the Elmore SPCA
  2. Make the donation in a way that raised awareness of the Elmore SPCA

We’d like to think both parts of the goal were accomplished.  People from all over the world participated and interacted with our Facebook page.  People who might not have been aware of the Elmore SPCA prior now know a lot about it, its animals, and its need for support/funding.  Other media forms, like the Peru Gazette, also ran stories on the event further spreading the message.

So as we close the book on the event, we want to thank everyone who supported us with a “Like” on our Facebook page.  Not only were you participating in the event and supporting our efforts, but you were also spreading awareness of the Elmore SPCA and its animals.

Those who might have missed our event can lend their support to another ongoing effort by Fox 44 in Vermont.  A portion of their donation will end up back at Elmore.

FirstView, Elmore, and the animals thank you for your help!
