Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Morrison Child and Family Services announces the launch of the first Unofficial World Series of Kickball fundraising campaign. Social media meets playground fun when the program kicks off on June 1. The primary goal of the campaign is to raise awareness and funds for the programs that Morrison provides to more than 5,000 children and families throughout Oregon. The second goal is for kids and families to have a good time for a good cause. “We see the tournament is another fun event as we get ready to celebrate 65 years of service to Oregon and SW Washington” says Leslie Brock, Executive Director at Morrison.
Giving back to the local community is a core component of the Bullard Law culture. “We are proud of the strong relationships we have forged with many Oregon nonprofits and are excited to work with Morrison on this campaign” says David Thompson, an attorney at Bullard. Bullard Law has supported Morrison Child and Family Services over the last eight years. Bullard chose CafeGive, a social media cause marketing company to increase the impact of support through team awareness and fundraising activities. “CafeGive’s platform is uniquely designed to enable companies and causes to do great things together by engaging social media in their worthy endeavor. Bullard Law and Morrison have put together a creative and fun example of just how this can be done,” says Sandra Morris, CEO of CafeGive.
The Unofficial World Series of Kickball will be shared across Facebook by teams and friends to reach a wide set of donors and supporters. Teams will not only raise funds throughout the summer, but they can also participate to win in three online competitions. Contests will include: the team with the “most active social media presence,” the team that “raises the most dollars” and the team that creates the most buzz with "most donors." Contest awards are provided by special donations from corporate sponsors. The online platform is sponsored by Bullard Law and was created using CafeGive social applications. The social aspect of the program will run online beginning June 1 and culminating on August 19 at the tournament on Alpenrose Field. Bullard Law and Morrison are anticipating 20 to 30 teams to participate. To sign up your team, visit our registration page and create your team-giving page. Progress on the campaign and the team's fundraising will be visible throughout the campaign at Bullard Law's Facebook page, and at Morrison Child and Family Services' Facebook page.
