Helping our followers get involved through social media will maximize the effect of the donation we can provide our veterans, who deserve everything this holiday season.
MONROE, IOWA, UNITED STATES, November 25, 2015 — Executive Auto Shippers (EAS) announced today that they will be hosting a fundraiser during the month of December for the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Through the use of social media and an in-house employee match program, EAS will donate up to $3,000 to WWP.
Their fundraiser, named Help our Heroes, starts with an employee match program that includes in office games where the company donates in the name of the winners. Executive Auto Shippers will also be running Facebook and Twitter promotions in which one “Share” or “Retweet” will equal one dollar donated by Executive Auto Shippers, up to 3,000.
Founder and CEO of EAS, Matt Van Gelder, expressed the importance of this donation. “The veterans mean so much to our country and we at Executive Auto Shippers feel it is our responsibility to help take care of them however we can,” said Van Gelder, “Helping our followers get involved through social media will maximize the effect of the donation we can provide our veterans, who deserve everything this holiday season.”
All proceeds from their employee match program and social media support will go directly to the injured service members in the 20 programs and services provided by WWP. These programs are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body and encourage economic empowerment and engagement. Through this donation, EAS knows it’s helping WWP work toward their vision of fostering the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.
