Update Dec. 29, 2011: Thanks to all our loyal Twitter followers who used the #8000kids hashtag to raise $243 for CFCA scholarships! We beat our original goal of $200 for the entire year. Way to go!
Many of you are already supporting our efforts to help CFCA President Bob Hentzen reach his goal of 8,000 kids sponsored during his 8,000-mile solidarity walk. We can’t thank you enough!
For every tweet with the hashtag #8000kids (that doesn’t come from us), donors will contribute one dollar to fund CFCA scholarships for students to complete their education.
We’re hoping to get at least 200 tweets with the hashtag #8000kids ñ that’s up to $200 for scholarships!
While raising money for scholarships is one of the goals of our initiative, our primary goal is to utilize Twitter to tell more people about CFCA and Bobís walk to help children living in poverty.
Do you use Twitter? If not, do any of your friends and family members? Here are some suggested tweets to send, or compose your own using the #8000kids hashtag to start spreading the word. Thanks so much.
