$25,000 for Social Media

$25,000 for Social Media
 
With just a couple of clicks, you can help Soldiers' Angels win a $25,000 social media "makeover!"  Just type "Soldiers' Angels" into the box at the link and follow the directions. 

 
Twitter, Facebook, and other interactive online platforms are one of the most potent ways to advocate, motivate, and spread the news these days.  Soldiers' Angels is an Internet-based organization, and having an expert makeover on the social media side of things would help SA reach out even more effectively to inspire Americans to support our heroes and make sure "No Soldier Go Unloved."  
 
Marcelle Turner, CEO of MindComet says, "Our hope is that the campaign will bring the participating organizations some national awareness through affiliation with the program, provide their constituents a focused mission to champion, and will ultimately result in a nationwide uplift in charitable giving driven by the power of social media."
 
The contest, created by interactive agency MindComet and dubbed CommuniCause, runs through July 31st.  At the conclusion, a winner will be selected at random from the ten highest vote-getters. One vote per email is counted, but the length of the campaign gives supporters the opportunity to spread the word about the contest through email, personal websites, and relationships within their local community. 

 
In addition to voting, supporters can place a badge on their website, or use Twitter to compile votes through "re-tweets" (@CommuniCause #cause2255).  Click here and scroll down for details. 

 
Competition began April 27, so Soldiers' Angels has some catching up to do!  But we've got a great word-of-mouth "ground game," so the Top Ten isn't out of reach.  Let's make it happen!
