I work for a charity in India which is headquartered in the USA. Being a simple organization, we always worked and focused on doing things on ground rather than on social media platforms. But the growing presence of all nonprofits on the social media platforms made us re-think our strategy.
We could go on and spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on advertising. But we decided to take it a bit slow by doing something different. We decided to use the money set aside for advertising for something good.
The Franciscan Family Apostolate’s blog explained this yesterday. I decided to take the liberty of copying the blog post for you. So here it goes-
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
― Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version
We firmly believe in the idea of making this world a better place with help from people like you. When we saw that our social media presence was not as good as we would want it to be, we decided to reach out to you. We hope that love and mercy still exist in your heart. No, we have not come here to ask for donations. We want your time, we want 2 seconds from your busy schedule.
Remember the time you spent on Facebook scrolling down infinitely to see other feeds? We want 2 seconds from that time. We want you to join us on Facebook. Not just you, we want you to invite your friends and family to do the same. Why would you do that?
We are donating $1 for every New Like that we get on Facebook. Our current tally is 113. So say we become a family of 500+, we will donate $400 to a needy society in Andhra Pradesh where we run our projects.
~A family could start its own livelihood with say a cow, a shop or a vegetable selling business.
~We can give medicines to the HIV/AIDS clinics in villages of Andhra Pradesh.
We will add-on to the amount if we get more people to join us on Facebook. We want to grow our family because we want more people to be aware about our programs, our cause and our struggles so that people can join us later.
