CHICO, Calif. (Nov. 30, 2010) – Exceeding the original goal of $10,000, all-natural and organic beverage brand R.W. Knudsen Family and Prevent Child Abuse America raised $13,420 and a donation of 10,000 Sensible Sippers™ organic juice boxes for the non-profit through a successful Facebook campaign.
For each new fan who “liked” the R.W. Knudsen Family Facebook fan page during the promotional period of November 1 to 21, the brand donated $1.00 and one Sensible Sippers organic juice box. It was promoted via PCA America’s various Facebook pages, R.W. Knudsen Family’s Facebook page, each organization’s Twitter page, the Prevent Child Abuse America blog and e-mail communications.
The original goal of 10,000 fans and $10,000 was quickly met after only 10 days into the campaign. R.W. Knudsen Family immediately extended the campaign to challenge supporters up to $15,000 and finished at $13,420.
“The response that we saw from our supporters was truly inspiring as they rallied to meet our goal,” said James M. Hmurovich, president and CEO of Prevent Child Abuse America. “R.W. Knudsen Family was the perfect partner for this type of campaign since it supports healthy families through the provision of healthful products. I am thankful for the corporate social responsibility the company showed and challenge more corporations to follow its lead and play a role in children's lives.”
