- Pie Wars was an event held in June 2011 by a community who met through social networking on Twitter. The group wanted to meet together in person for a pie competition and one member of the group decided to take an extra initiative to give back through the event. Promoting the contest using free resources online, the group charged for entry and auctioned off the winning pies, with all proceeds going towards School on Wheels programs. Not only was it a fun night for everyone involved, but by turning an event that was already happening into a charity opportunity, the people at Pie Wars benefited homeless kids that would not have been helped otherwise.
By engaging the communities at their office building and homes, the people at Defender Direct brought attention to our cause and made a huge difference in the lives children in need. Engage your community through a similar campaign using FirstGiving or StayClassy, both great websites with a cause.
