Crossroads Rhode Island won a contest we recently sponsored on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/TheMakeLifeGoodCompany). and won a donation of 25 of our Make Life Good! logo t-shirts.
The other participant in the contest, which began on February 1st and ended a week later, was the YWCA of Central Massachusetts. As the runner-up, they received a bunch of our imprinted Make Life Good! wristbands, which include part of our mission statement to “remind, encourage and inspire” people to Make Life Good for others, as well as postcards with our logo.
Our goal for the contest was to highlight the great work of both organizations in their communities and bring attention to our mission to support groups that Make Life Good! for others. So the contest was a win-win for all of us.
And the contest was simple - whichever organization got the most “likes,” essentially votes, on our Facebook page, would win the contest. We posted two photos combining our Make Life Good! logo with the logos of each organization, sharing them for a week on Facebook. We thought this was a great way to bring some well-deserved attention to the good work of both organizations while also engaging followers.
In the end, Crossroads came out on top with 40 likes.
On February 12th, we presented the 25 Make Life Good! t-shirts to Maria, the in-kind donations manager and volunteer coordinator of Crossroads Rhode Island. While we were there, we took some photographs to commemorate the event (see below).
Crossroads Rhode Island works to make the experience of homelessness as temporary as possible by helping families and individuals secure stable homes quickly. They are actually the largest homeless services organization in the Ocean State today and we’re happy we can support them. We just wish we could do more.
The same goes for the YWCA of Central Massachusetts. They provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for both women’s and civil rights.
We look forward to working with both organizations again in the future.
This was our first time partnering with local non-profit organizations. And it was a great experience for all of us at Make Life Good! It left us inspired to find more ways to recognize organizations and people who make life good for others everyday in their communities.
And we hope you, too, are inspired to take action, to show compassion for those less fortunate, to lead by example, and, above all, to Make Life Good! for others however you can.
We offer several t-shirts with various messages that are designed to remind, encourage and inspire others by showcasing the change you may want to see in the world. So visit our webstore at MakeLifeGood.co.
We hope you continue supporting The Make Life Good Company, Crossroads Rhode Island, the YWCA of Central Massachusetts, and the hundreds of other groups and organizations trying to make the world a better place for all of us.. We can’t do it without you.
