Along with the Walk to Defeat ALS, Quicken Loans is raising money through a project called "Tweet for ALS." No, you don't have to have a Twitter account to take part either! “Tweet for ALS” is a way to use social media to drive awareness and participation to raise money for ALS. (Lou Gehrig ’s Disease)
With today’s popularity of social networking and with the help of social media users everywhere to spread the word, our goal is to raise $70,000 in 7 days. We’re feeling quite ambitious this year, because we’ve set the goal higher and challenged everyone to join our team in helping us reach it.
The concept is simple:
1.) 7 days (Sept 20-26)
2.) Goal: $70,000 for research & medical support for ALS
3.) Donate, Tweet, Share
4.) Win cool Prizes
5.) Help change people’s lives
By creating a project on Crowdrise.com, we’ve made it incredibly fast and easy for everyone to get involved. Anyone can go to “Tweet for ALS” to donate and share with their family and friends right now.
When you make a donation to “Tweet for ALS” this week, you will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win cool prizes. Some of the giveaways include iPod Nanos, Flip Cams, Detroit Pistons “Honorary Ball Kid” certificate, Detroit Red Wings Chris Drapper signed hockey stick and tickets to the first Cleveland vs. Miami game of the season.
Although the time period to donate and be entered into the drawing ends September 26, "Tweet for ALS" will still accept donations when the "giveaway" week is over. If you want to be a part of using social media for social good, this is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved!
