It is with great excitement that we announce to you our first Twitter promotion, “Tweet for a Cause: Raphael House of Portland” We’ve teamed up with Raphael House of Portland and developed what we think will be a fun and exciting promotion. Instead of telling you who Raphael House is, we’ll let their website speak for itself:
“Raphael House is a multi-faceted domestic violence agency dedicated to fighting the causes and effects of intimate partner violence in a variety of ways. We offer emergency shelter in a confidential location, a 24-hour in-house crisis line, transitional housing and advocacy programs, non-residential advocacy in partnership with the Portland Police Bureau, and also work to bring an end to violence through community outreach and education.”
So, needless to say, this is a great cause that we can TOTALLY get behind. It was important to Urban Waxx that we could help support a local charity, that embodies the same values that we hold dear, like empowering individuals. After doing some research, Liam and I found the Raphael House, and Liam came up with a great way to help out:Twitter. It just makes sense to us! We love Twitter, we love people, and we love to give back! Add it all together and Twitter is a great way to give to an amazing cause, and have some fun with new friends in the process. Basically, Tweet for a Cause means that for every follower we have by October 31st, we’ll donate $1 to Raphael House of Portland. It’s that simple. The more followers we get, the more money we’ll be able to donate.
How can you help? Simple! Follow us on Twitter @urbanwaxx and tell your friends. We’ll be tweeting up a storm and a simple ReTweet would totally help us get the word out. Thanks for your support and we’ll keep you all posted on the progress.
*Donation will not exceed 2,000 total followers. Promotion runs until 10/31/2009. Any questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
