Pedal 4 the People

This June Boise Bicycle Project will be the beneficiary of a creative matching gift promotion sponsored by Boise advertising agencies Drake Cooper and Oliver Russell and powered by Social Good Network’s online fundraising platform.

For the duration of Boise Bicycle Project’s “Pedal 4 the People” event, which starts June 8th and runs through June 22nd, Drake Cooper and Oliver Russell will each match up to $500 in online donations made to Boise Bicycle Project on the ad agencies’ Facebook pages or Boise Bicycle Page’s Facebook page and website at boisebicycleproject.org.  In all, Boise Bicycle Project stands to raise more than $2,000.

The creative matching gift promotion demonstrates Social Good Network’s “Go-Anywhere Fundraising,” which broadens a cause’s online fundraising.  Instead of receiving donations only on their website, causes can now raise funds on virtually any site on the web, including social media and corporate partners websites.

“It’s great to have the support of companies like Drake Cooper and Oliver Russell that recognize the importance of bicycling to their companies and the city, “said Jimmy Hallyburton, executive director of BBP.  “They’re making it possible to double your donation when you give to us online during Pedal 4 the People.”
