This fundraising drive will help us deliver over 150 safety presentations across Alberta!
With some donations still coming in, the fundraising total currently sits at $8,800. Contributions were received from 78 different donors, including 59 donations of $29 and three donations of $290.
Our biggest supporter was Brian Willis, who contributed $4,204 from the Pursuit of Personal Excellence seminar put on by Winning Mind Training. A big thanks to Brian and Winning Mind Training. Brian has long been a supporter of the JPMF!
Other highlights of the campaign include:
- 925 visits to the JPMF’s website at www.jpmf.ca
- During one week of The 29-Day Challenge, our Facebook page reached over 1,250 people
- We picked up 35 new followers on Twitter and details of the campaign were retweeted 55 times
- Our PSAs and safety video were viewed on YouTube more than 550 times
- Five safety presentations were booked for groups across Alberta
The original fundraising goal of The 29-Day Challenge was $29,000, but Managing Director Ian Wilson said it’s hard to consider the campaign anything other than a major success.
“The response to The 29-Day Challenge was quite overwhelming,” said Wilson.
“We took in nearly $9,000 and that funding will help us deliver over 150 safety presentations to companies, associations and conferences across Alberta. This campaign means we will reach thousands of Albertans with our safety messages and these presentations will help save lives and prevent injuries.”
Wilson said The 29-Day Challenge helped the JPMF reconnect with old supporters and connect with new supporters.
“It also helped us promote the JPMF through social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and, more importantly, promote our excellent Safety Presentation Program, which provides free presentations about workplace and traffic safety across Alberta.”
