Local Business and Fans “Give Thanks” to a Non-Profit With Free Website

PromoVerse is donating a free website valued at $4,000 to a local charity. We are running a Facebook like competition to determine the winner. The five charities are Mom2Mom, Change One, NJ SPCA, Youth Empowerment Services, and Ultimate Allstars.

Online PR News – 30-October-2012 – Asbury, New Jersey – PromoVerse, a new startup company which provides deals for local merchants right on shoppers smartphones, is giving five non-profits a veritable cornucopia of online awareness by launching a New Jersey-based contest this month.

Steven Chiocchi, the 25-year old founder of The Areli Group and creator of PromoVerse, is offering a free website makeover (a $4,000 value) to one of five non-profits. The winner will be determined by how many fans vote on Facebook for their favorite cause.

Says Chiocchi, “We’re not waiting for Thanksgiving to build a spirit of gratitude and community. We will select up to five local non-profits based on the relevance of their causes to our local market and the quality of their programs.” The participating Non-Profits are, NJ SPCA, Mom2Mom, We Are Change, Ultimate Allstars and Youth Empowerment Services. The four runners-up will still receive a significant discount on a website makeover and social media consulting this year.

“Many non-profits are looking for creative new ways to build awareness and find new donors and volunteers. PromoVerse is giving them a compelling reason to reach out to current and new supporters – without spending a dime!” continues Chiocchi.

The contest, which begins on October 29th works as follows:

• All five non-profits will get a featured image on PromoVerse’s Facebook page
• “Fans” of the non-profit can “like” the image to vote once and re-share it to get their friends to vote
• If a voter downloads the PromoVerse app, and scans the non-profits QR code on the image, the non-profit will get three bonus votes.
The winner will be announced before Thanksgiving, just in time for celebration of community.
