Howell, MI (PRWEB) June 21, 2012
DateKeeper.org and The Salvation Army of Livingston County worked together from May 28th – June 11th to promote the “Get Social, Feed Kids” campaign, focused on helping low-income children avoid summer hunger. All interactions through DateKeeper’s social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter, generated donations towards the Army’s Summer Lunch Bunch program, set to begin June 19th.
Offered through The Salvation Army, The Summer Lunch Bunch program provides meals and activities during the summer months for children in need, and has the potential to affect over 552,000 children in the State of Michigan according to the Center for Educational Performance and Information.
Many Facebook fans, Twitter followers, and social media enthusiasts participated in the “Get Social, Feed Kids “campaign. In fact, DateKeeper’s Facebook page alone increased in “likes” from 386 to 490 in just a 2-week period helping to fund a large percentage of the donations raised.
“We are so grateful that the community helped get the word out online and together raised $249 for The Salvation Army and the kids of Livingston County,” says Steve Gronow, CEO and Founder of DateKeeper. “Datekeeper was delighted to have the opportunity to work with The Salvation Army and is thankful to everyone who participated.”
