Brackets for Good
The Social has once again been chosen to be 1 of 64 area charities to participate in Brackets for Good. Brackets For Good is an Indianapolis, IN based 501(c) 3 charitable organization focused on activating new donors and increasing awareness for other nonprofit organizations through competitive, online fundraising at no cost. They use the bracketology model of the NCAA. We are the only Greenwood based charity that was selected to participate. In round one of the "tournament" which runs 2/27-3/6 we are matched against Nathan’s Playroom. We need your help to raise more online funds than they do so we can continue to advance. The team which raises the most funds online in that time period will advance to the next round. All charities keep all funds they raise plus winners of each round receive prize money. The winner of the tourney will receive a check during halftime of a Pacers game for $10,000. If we have your email address, we will be sending you more details soon on how you can participate in this initiative. If you do not, stop in The Social and we can direct you on how you can help us “score”. All proceeds will be applied to the further renovations to our facility including the parking lot.
The competition pits one local charity against another in an online fundraising competition. The team which secures the most donations in a certain time frame wins each round. Round one begins at 8:00 pm on February 27 and ends at 7:59 pm on March 6. Winning will require more than just you making a single donation. We will need you each round. It will also require you to involve your friends. Bring them to The Social so they can participate. Visit our website and ask others to do the same. Share our posts on Facebook with all your social networking friends, and even tweet about it on Twitter using the hashtag # BFG15
You might be asked to help us make a video, staff a phone calling campaign or bring in items needed for promotion. Whether your role is donor, actor, prop supplier, phone solicitor- we are all part of The Social TEAM.
