OK... Perhaps I have gone a bit overboard in my excitement, but there is no discounting what this small Company with a big heart has done. And yes, this has nothing to do with improved health, unless you consider the potential for children like my daughter who has Prader-Willi Syndrome. Six charities just walked away with some sizable donations from APX Alarm and two of those were Prader-Willi Syndrome Organizations in Utah & California.
I have been involved with other contests for charities before, that link to Facebook, but none that I have seen has personalized it as much as APX Alarm. They took a simple marketing idea and used it to do what they seem to enjoy most, helping others. And through the ingenuity of there marketing staff, they have kept people engaged, excited, involved and safe. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that the marketing department was sometimes surprised by what was happening and was also inspired with new ideas regularly from the participation.
We must also give recognition to many of the participants & supporters, especially to the CHERUBS organization. It seems to me that through the many comments posted early on by CHERUBS supporters, many people were inspired to post comments in support of their own favorite charities. I started becoming a regular, when it comes to commenting on the APX Wall, after seeing all the CHERUBS comments. It was all of this posting of comments that really made a big difference in the contest. It brought people together.
As a result of this fantastic opportunity, stories were shared, friendships developed and many charities gained much more awareness than that which could be gained from the bigger name giveaways such as those done by the cola and banking companies. We were able to share our cause in a more "in your face" way, with those who were supporting other charities. And although this was all done with a competitive spirit, it was friendly competition and many took the opportunity to learn more about the great organizations represented.
Many may never realize just how big this was. But those who are in the trenches every day realize just how this small company with a big heart is changing lives and creating opportunities for charities to make a difference in the world.
Thank you APX Alarm!!!
