Getting Ready for Do More 24
There are 29 days to go until the annual Do More 24 Campaign being sponsored by the United Way of the National Capital Area and we want to win some of the prize money being offered so that we can help more families find financial stability and self-sufficiency through permanent, affordable housing.
How can you get involved? Besides marking your calendar for June 2nd and bookmarking our Do More 24 page https://domore24.org/npos/good-shepherd-housing-amp-family-services, you can help us by increasing our reach on social media.
You can like our Facebook page and invite others who you think might be interested in our mission.
You can follow us on Twitter. Our Twitter handle is @GoodHousingOrg. One easy way to share our page with others is to share our page with a simple Follow Friday (#ff) post, like this on any Friday: “Looking forward to the weekend! #ff @goodhousingorg #affordablehousing”
You can follow us on Instagram at @GoodShepherdHousing.
You can also sign up and attend our first ever Strategic Social Media Workshop on May 21st. We’ll be sharing our plan on the prizes we will be working for and helping volunteers who may be new to social media to set up accounts. RSVP here.
