The Good Camp saved CatCafe Lounge and now we can save more cats!
BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) October 27, 2020
The Good Camp (TGC), a marketing and public relations agency that serves conscious brands that better the planet and the humans and animals that inhabit it–in industries such as natural products, clean beauty, animal welfare and ethical fashion–today announced the success of its intensive 2-week high-stakes campaign to save nonprofit client, CatCafe Lounge (CCL), from closure due to the regulatory and economic effects of COVID by helping the organization to reach the balance of its $42,000 fundraising goal.
TGC’s founder, Sara Miranda, learned of the organization’s plight from her former coworker and CCL founder, Kristi Labrenz, and knew her team had to move quickly.
“I’m an animal lover first and foremost,” said Miranda. “My dog Molly is a rescue animal and I’ve volunteered at organizations like Kristi’s. It broke my heart to think she might have to close her doors and put the future lives of thousands of cats at risk, so our small six-person team put our heads together to come up with a budget-friendly yet impactful solution and got right to work.”
Without CCL, hundreds, if not thousands, of cats could have been euthanized. CCL has helped save over 450 cats in just a couple of years, and hopes to continue for years to come. Part of the funds went toward the creation of an outdoor space dubbed the “Catio” to assist with its sustainability throughout COVID’s ongoing challenges.
“I can’t express how grateful we are to the entire TGC team,” said Labrenz. “The funds have created a runway for us to remain operational while we recoup lost visitors through our new outdoor catio. TGC saved CCL and now we can save more cats!”
Fundraiser Campaign Highlights:
- Optimized fundraiser page helped to raise $16,000 in just 2 weeks
- Social posts achieved a 3.5% engagement rate (1.75% is the average for nonprofits)
- Email marketing created a sense of urgency with CCL’s existing supporters, more than doubling the organization’s typical click-through rate
- A press release was optimized even with free distribution by utilizing a free newswire which falls within the top 10,000 websites in the US
- Influencer outreach elicited responses from hyper-targeted influencers like vegan, animal-loving @ashley_wilke with 162k followers
- Video production from concept to on-site footage, interview and editing, served as the centerpiece of the campaign
In addition to the fundraising campaign with CCL, TGC is also a fundraiser for charity: water, since there are people all over the world who don’t have access to clean water, a basic need that many in developed countries take for granted.
