NCG member Firelight Foundation started an ambitious Facebook campaign this past Monday: a goal of 500 “Likes” in 5 Days.
For every new “Like” Firelight gets on their Facebook page within the 5 day time frame (deadline is now this Monday, September 5th), a Firelight donor has pledged to give $1 to support the foundation’s work in sub-Saharan Africa.
Firelight is using the campaign to build up their social media audience and to engage their current supporters.
“…If you haven’t already “Liked” us on Facebook, simply click this link, which will lead you to our page:
If you already “Like” us on Facebook, please tell a friend about Firelight…”
The good news is (very good news) the campaign has been so successful that Firelight’s donor has issued a further challenge: 2,500 new “Likes” by this Monday for a total of $2,500.
Here’s what Firelight posted on their Facebook page yesterday:
“Our donor is so excited by our success that we’re now challenged to reach 2500 new Likes that’s $2500! Now we need 1691 Likes (we started at 826) to make it. If everyone reaches out to 2 more people, we’ll make it! We can do it with your help!”
Congrats to Firelight on their social media success! We’ll keep an eye on your Facebook status updates as the deadline approaches.
