helping many, one by one
Monroe Township, NJ (Vocus) May 25, 2010
Until the end of May, every new Twitter follower or Facebook fan of ASCNYC earns the organization a $1 donation, up to $3,000. It’s just one way EdenFantasys is helping raise awareness with mobilized its considerable social media umbrella. ASC maintains three profiles (ASCNYC, SaferSexASC, ASC_Harlem). Earlier this month, EdenFantasys sponsored raffle prizes for an ASC bingo fundraiser, and will be providing an auction basket and sponsoring the upcoming annual Safer Sex In The City party in June. SexIs Magazine and Eden Café will continue to feature articles related to ASC, including a SexIs piece covering this week’s ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Keith Haring ASC Harlem Center. Later in the summer, Eden and ASC will team up at BlogHer for a safer sex arts and crafts party.
