Giving Tuesday was a great opportunity for us to do our part.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
Bill Howe Plumbing is no stranger to giving back to the community. The company has teamed up with the American Heart Association for the past three years, and in 2013 has added the San Diego Burn Institute to its roster of organizations benefitting from heir "pay-it-forward" spirit. A true family-owned and operated business, Bill Howe Plumbing places great importance on giving back and the local San Diego plumber was happy to participate in "Giving Tuesday" this year to help some of their favorite organizations.
The nationwide movement, "Giving Tuesday," followed on the heels of "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday." During a time of year synonymous with spending and present giving, it is important to also highlight and engage in giving back to the community and helping those in need. On December 3, 2013, "Giving Tuesday" made its mark across retailers, social media and local businesses, giving people the opportunity to support the charitable spirit of the holiday season.
"Giving Tuesday" was a great opportunity for us to do our part," said Tina Howe, Vice President of the San Diego heating, plumbing and restoration company. "We have a great customer following on our own social media platforms and we wanted to help engage them in the spirit, so we offered to donate $1 for each service call performed on that day."
Not only did the San Diego plumber donate $1 for each service call to one organization, they added a secondary organization to double their efforts. At the end of the day, Bill Howe Plumbing performed 174 service calls that equated to a donation of $174 to the American Heart Association and an additional $174 donation to the San Diego Burn Institute.
This is not the first time the Bill Howe Family of Companies has utilized their social media to raise money for organizations near to their own heart. On December 6, they participated in the Warrior Foundation-Freedom Station Radiothon, which raised over $300,000 dollars, and their own Initiative during October raising $259 for breast cancer research, which they donated in honor of one of their own employees’ mothers, a breast cancer survivor.
