Hoover, AL (PRWEB) February 19, 2014
Social media. It’s all over the place now; iGadgets and smartphones are saturated in the latest “Sweets Smasher” apps and YouTube channels all integrated with our favorite social mouthpieces, be they Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin, Pinterest and more. But when social media, and those using it, come together for a greater cause, the results for a local Alabama youth, women, and children refuge materialize into a true blessing.
To understand how the massage therapists and staff of Massage Envy Spa - Greystone, a local Birmingham, Alabama day spa and massage clinic, used social media and email marketing to raise an impressive amount of money to help and assist victims of neglect and abuse, one must go back past the New Year and Christmas holidays, past Thanksgiving even. Back on the 21st of November, Massage Envy Spa - Greystone entered into an intra-company competition with the goal of raising money for The King’s Home, a Christian based provider of Christ-centered homes for women and children in “extreme and difficult conditions and circumstances.”
With the cooperation of their generous social media contacts and connections and their existing customer base reachable by email, Massage Envy Spa - Greystone was able to best their competition by raising an astonishing $1,500 in just under 2 months. A check was written and given to The Kings Home on January 6th, 2014. The Kings Home has been helping women, children, and youth in need of shelter and safety for almost 40 years, often relying on the help of outside donors to facilitate the maintenance and operation of 19 therapeutic group homes and independent- living facilities.
By successfully utilizing the power of social media and the people who use it, Massage Envy Spa - Greystone was able to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that charity and teamwork can be practiced and achieved in almost any way imaginable.
Massage Envy Spa - Greystone is located at 250 Doug Baker Blvd. Suite 500, Hoover, AL 35242. Their services include, but are not limited to:
