In an effort to give back and support the humane treatment of animals, Havahart® today announces a charity initiative using their Facebook page to raise money for American Humane Association. Facebook users can participate by going to Facebook.com/HavahartBrand and clicking the Like button.
For each new Facebook fan Havahart® gains, the company is donating $.10 to American Humane Association. Participants can track the progress on the Facebook page, and they are encouraged to share the fund-raising efforts with their friends. Havahart®’s goal is to reach 25,000 fans or $2,500, but will be continuing the campaign until November 30, 2011 even after the goal is reached.
Facebook’s widespread popularity offers incredible opportunities for companies to pair with non-profit organizations to raise money in new and creative ways.
This is a simple way for Facebook users and Havahart® to give back to a non-profit organization that aligns with their common values – humane treatment of animals. Havahart® is a leading manufacturer of caring control products for animals, such as animal traps, and animal repellents. Because Havahart®’s products do not harm animals, they are popular in the animal control community and are commonly used by animal control officers and humane societies.
“We wanted to donate to a non-profit that works for the humane treatment of animals and thought using our Facebook Page to engage our community was an excellent way to get our Facebook fans involved in this initiative,” said Stephanie Vansyckle, Category Development Manager for Havahart®.
American Humane Association, a non-profit organization which promotes the humane treatment of animals and children, has goals that align with the mission of Havahart®.
“It takes a second for Facebook users to click the like button on our Facebook Page and, with that action, we are able to give back to an organization that aligns with our company’s value of providing consumers caring control options for animals,” Vansyckle added.
