The Lycoming County SPCA is located in an area with three colleges. We have been the beneficiary of student's help in numerous ways from internships to video documentaries, it is absolutely wonderful!
Most recently I was approached by a student who has been challenged (in a class project) to use only social media to help a non-profit raise funds. They can use facebook, blogs, gofundit, pinterest, twitter, reddit, and any other type of social media to raise the funds.
Together we have come up with a campaign that should be launched on November 1, 2013. The students were instructed that they can only begin their project on that date and have 25 days to reach a financial goal.
I don't want to steal their thunder, but the young lady I met with has some good ideas.
Watch out social media, the SPCA animals will be helping the students make their pitch. Be on the lookout!
