Poverty Resolutions Launches a 'Likeable' Campaign Through Facebook
June 5, 2012
Non-profit organization Poverty Resolution developed an innovative fundraising campaign to support the victims of the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010. For every ‘Like’ they receive on the Poverty Resolutions Facebook page, a generous donor has offered to contribute $1 toward their cause. With a current tally of 6,285 ‘likes’ on their Facebook page, the campaign has been successful in providing significant aid to deserving Haitians in a variety of ways.
Poverty Resolutions seeks to support Haitians not only in their rebuilding process, but in strengthening their small businesses and microfinance as well. A portion of the funds collected are loaned to individuals who have developed business plans. Once these loans are paid back with interest, this money is recycled back into the business program. In this way, many Haitians are able to benefit from the funds, providing employment and economic stability to these individuals. In addition to these business loans, Poverty Resolution equips these individuals with the tools necessary to successfully sustain their business ventures.
The Poverty Resolutions website was recently developed by web-design and marketing agency FocusMX to better allow the non-profit to spread their message. The site now boasts an appealing quality that strives to effectively impart the non-profit’s news and information.
Founded in 2010, Poverty Resolutions is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based out of Doylestown, PA. Founders Matt and Andrew Jones developed the organization in response to the carnage caused by the 2010 earthquake. They have been committed to eliminating dollar-a-day poverty in Haiti since their inception. They have made it their mission to provide relief through financial and labor resources to support the deserving people of Haiti. In addition, they seek to educate Americans as to how they can proactively aid the people of Haiti, and spur them into action.
