December Charitable Promotions At CCRV!

Once again here at your CCRV, your Corpus Christi RV dealership, we have decided to be an official sponsor of KRIS Communications Second Annual Season Of Hope Drive. As a sponsor we are an official drop off location for new unwrapped toys and non perishable food. As you drive by CCRV you can see our big drop off box as you walk up the stairs to our dealership. We welcome you to come by through December 20th and drop off your donations! We also welcome you and your family/friends to come by CCRV on December 13th between 5pm and 7 pm. We are holding a live donation drive and KRIS TV will be on site filming.

Everything donated will go to The Women’s Shelter Of South Texas, The Food Bank of Corpus Christi, and Marine Toys for Tots.

Aside from being a drop off location- we thought we could do something more. So we decided this year to run a $1 Per Fan drive on Facebook– benefiting the three charities. It’s really pretty simple- for EVERY new fan we get on our Facebook Page from December 5, 2012- December 20, 2012 we will add $1 to our donation. At the end of the promotional time frame we will calculate the number of new Facebook fans we have received, and we will split the donation evenly among the three charities.

You can help! Spread the word how ever you can- to friends, family, co-workers, etc. We are donating up to $500 and we are really pushing to hit our goal. Thanks for all of your support!

 

 

 

You Can Help Us Raise Money For The Make A Wish Foundation!

Yesterday, July 9th- we launched our $1 Per Fan promotion benefiting the Make A Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas. Many of us here at CCRV, your Corpus Christi RV Dealer have been planning/organizing this promotion for weeks now and it was very important for us to find the right charity to raise funds for. Last month we chose to benefit Maddie Sue, the granddaughter of one of our employees, who was born with a birth defect which caused a bilateral cleft lip and palate. This month we decided we wanted to choose a charity that would also benefit children.

 

How Does The Promotion Work? Good question! It’s actually very simple! From July 9, 2012 till July 27, 2012 we will donate $1 for every new fan we acquire to the Make A Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas. We chose to work with this local chapter because we wanted to help a local Texas child.

About The Make A Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas: According to the chapter’s website, they “grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.” If you aren’t familiar with the Make A Wish Foundation it is a national organization that is well known as being the nations largest wish granting organization. The chapter is a 501(c)(3) non profit. The goal is to show the community how powerful sharing a wish can be.

Wish Granting Process, How Does It Work? The process starts with a referral, which can come from the child, the child’s family, a physician, or a social worker. After the referral is received, the child’s primary physician must fill out a medical authorization form. Volunteers then visit the child and a wish is selected. The volunteers are made up of enthusiastic and caring individuals who try and inspire the child to be creative and honest about their wish. Once the actual wish is requested and the funds are available- the wish is granted! This chapter has recently made wishes that include sending Mason (a 7 year old child from Austin who suffers from cancer) to Hawaii and also sending Christen (a 9 year old child from Austin who suffers from Leukemia) to Disney World.

How Can I Help? You can help more than you know! Sharing this promotion with your friends and family will do wonders. When we post on Facebook you can hit the share button and share the post on your Facebook Timeline. This will make it easy to let your Facebook friends know that with a simple “like” of our page they can help increase our donation to the Make A Wish Foundation. Word of mouth will also be very effective in promoting this fundraiser!

All of us here at CCRV would like to thank you for your help- we look forward to helping the Make A Wish Foundation of Central & South Texas to grant a wish for a child who truly deserves it!
