For the past four years Spincaster has contributed to the United Way CSO campaign through in-kind donations. It was an easy decision for us to work with United Way because of their commitment to improve lives for vulnerable children, adults and seniors in Kelowna and surrounding areas. Every year we donate our time making improvements to the unitedwaycso.com website.
In 2009 Spincaster received a special award from United Way for our in-kind contributions and we were very honored to receive the award. We truly enjoy working with Karen Graham, Director of Resource Development for United Way CSO as she goes out of her way to acknowledge and promote corporate contributors like ourselves.
This year we have significantly increased our in-kind campaign contribution by totally redesigning the unitedwaycso.com website and volunteering at Maxine DeHart’s United Way Drive-Thru Breakfast. Our Creative Director, Ryan Martinez donated his own time week nights and weekends to complete the website redesign project. We are very fortunate to have Ryan on the Spincaster team! It has been a pleasure working on the new website with Avril Paice, Director of Community Investment for United Way CSO.
At the drive-thru event on October 6 2011, our Founder Troy Hunnie volunteered to promote the event with a social media campaign on Twitter as well as live Twitter broadcasting during the event. Support your Kelowna community and follow United Way CSO on Twitter!
The event was a huge success, $40,111 were raised in three short hours!
