"We at Next Door are so grateful for community partners like Jen Jaciw for her innovative and creative spirit in putting together a fundraiser for our agency!" Donna Knowlton, Development Director for Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence is a non-profit organization that helps victims and survivors of domestic violence in Santa Clara County create better lives for themselves and their families. Lone Star Limousine is located less than 5 miles from Next Door and is owned by Jennifer Jaciw, who is a domestic violence survivor herself. Driven by her own personal experience, Jaciw has done local fundraising to support the organization before. However, they recently decided to team-up to create a contest, using social media, that will not only raise more awareness for Next Door, who has sister organizations across the United States, but to also increase consciousness of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.
“Back in May of this year, we ran a successful campaign, donating 5% of all airport transfers completed that month directly to Next Door. Their organization is so amazing and the work they do is much needed due to the domestic abuse epidemic. Sure, everyone is seeing the news about the NFL players but these stories happen every day, all day, across the country. They just typically don’t make headline news,” explains Jennifer Jaciw, Owner of Lone Star Limo. “So we are re-running the campaign for the month of October to support Next Door locally, and in addition, have added a social media contest to raise awareness on a larger scale.”
Contest overview: During the month of October, anyone can enter the contest by liking Lone Star Limousine on facebook and then following the prompts to like Next Door Solutions on facebook. From there, you can gain more raffle entries by sharing posts from either page to raise awareness of the campaign and contest. The Grand Prize is a $500 Night Out on the Town package. The contest will run from October 1st, 2014 to October 31st, 2014, and the Winner will be announced on November 5th, 2014.
