Hopelink and Seattle Metro Area Groupon Subscribers Help Provide food for 231 Children - 04/25/12

The following post is a project update from Nick Gauna, Campaign Organizer for the West Coast and Pacific Northwest, and the Hopelink Grassroots campaign that raised $2,951 for Hopelink’s End Summer Hunger Campaign.

Seattle - As one of my first fundraising campaigns since joining the Groupon Grassroots team, I was ecstatic that Hopelink had such a successful campaign. Kris, a public-relations specialist for Hopelink, was super easy to work with, and we enjoyed watching the ticker constantly increase as the days passed. Eclipsing $2,500 was a great feeling, but following up and measuring the overall impact of this campaign was the real payoff.

From Hopelink:

“Hopelink’s 2011 Groupon campaign raised $2,951 to provide healthy meals for needy kids on summer break. That means that thanks to Groupon subscribers, 231 children received two weeks’ worth of nutritious food through the End Summer Hunger campaign!”
