SAN DIEGO, Dec 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — To support nonprofits and the final year-end giving push, Posiba’s givn app is highlighting 3 nonprofits who are competing in their givn #SparkTheGood Contest, including Animal Rescuers Without Borders (ARWOB), Lighthouse Cares Foundation and Crossroads Youth & Family Services.
With the 2015 year-end giving season coming to a close, nonprofits and donors are in the final 10-day countdown and competition to win over $25,000 in the givn #SparkTheGood contest. Nine winners (3 nonprofits and 6 donor nominated nonprofits) will be selected based on the most “sparks” or social media engagements (Shares, Likes, Retweets and Comments) through the givn.social website and the givn app.
Anyone (donors, volunteers and nonprofits) can sign up for a fun and free givn.social account, and “spark the good” simply by sharing their favorite charities and support with friends on social media (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) to help nonprofits win $10,000 (1st prize), $7,500 (2nd prize) and $5,000 (3rd prize).
In addition to nonprofit winners, donors with the most engagement (“sparks”) by year-end will win money to donate to their favorite cause, including $2,500 (1st prize), $1,000 (2nd prize) and $500 (3rd prize). Learn how donors can help their favorite nonprofit.
Posiba designed givn to increase the social impact of charity support by leveraging social media. According to ORC’s International Caravan Survey, the statistics show that sharing charitable donations through social media multiplies the results:
To provide an additional push for participating nonprofits of the Givn #SparkTheGood Contest, Posiba asked all entries to submit blog posts with an impact story for the givn.social blog and for this press release. The top 3 blogs selected include these nonprofits, who are helping to get the word out about their good deeds for supporters and their networks.
With 30% of all US donations happening in December and 12% of annual giving in the last 3 days, it’s not too late to enter the givn #SparkTheGood Contest and have donations multiply by word-of-mouth marketing.
