We’d like to give a BIG thank you to everyone who supported our fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital this past weekend!
In an effort to raise money for the organization and get the community involved, members of Pizazz Floors developed an idea where on a given Friday, for every new person that liked our Facebook page, we would donate $1 to St. Jude. The fundraiser kicked off bright and early Friday morning, August 5th. Things began slowly, with only 6 new likes by 10:00 AM, and we were starting to get a little worried that we may not be able to get the fundraiser off the ground. But through a lot of determination and a lot of posting, things started to pick up as the day progressed. Followers of the page began spreading the word, encouraging their friends to support the cause, and posting messages about the fundraiser on their own walls. By the end of Friday, 103 people had liked the page, bringing the donation total to $103. Although the fundraiser was only supposed to go on for the day, we still wanted to raise more, so we continued our efforts through the weekend. The fundraiser ended Sunday night with $154 raised for St. Jude, and an increased awareness about the life-changing work of the pediatric cancer research center. We will present St. Jude with our donation this week, and we are looking forward to doing more fundraisers in the near future!
