Hunter PR, a marketing public relations agency based in New York City, is using social media to fundraise for the NYC Clothing Bank. Here is some information on the fundraiser:
For every person that fans our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/hunterpr) through March 31st, we’ll be donating $1 to the NYC Clothing Bank, which is our pro bono client. It’s an organization that helps to clothe needy New Yorkers, something that is especially essential during these cold-weather months. We decided to host this virtual fundraiser by harnessing the power of social media.
