|Social Networking – For Good or For Awesome|
A few of us Twitter folks got together and decided to do something different to help the community in these tough times. Once a month for 3 days we will work to increase awareness for a specific non profit / charity. This month our Cause Champion is Calvin Lee @MayhemStudios and we are working help Prevent Child Abuse. Just for helping spread the word, you automatically enter to win a free Bag or Belt (your choice) from Jumeau.
Prevent Child Abuse America (PCA America) undertakes its mission by affecting change at the governmental and community level on the systems that support the full range of services needed to promote the child development process and provide parents with better conditions to be the kind of parents they want to be. Check out the PCA America Website and Blog.
So how do you win? This is the exciting part.
To win, all you have to do is send the following Tweet on Twitter:
The best part is that you can enter as many as 10 times and then an extra 5x for every 1,000 followers you have (we added the limitation to try to prevent this from being abused – our main goal IS to raise awareness and Prevent Child Abuse). Just make sure that you send the Tweet exactly like it is written. Otherwise we won't be able to track your entries.
Up for Grabs
FIVE Bags or Belts from Jumeau – Winners Choice from anything Jumeau makes
But Wait there’s More!!!
In addition to the free Bag / Belt, everyone that donates at least $10 directly to Prevent Child Abuse America will be entered to win one of TEN $50 gift certificates from Jumeau. On Saturday the folks at PCA America will randomly pick 10 winners from everyone that donated and send them a $50 gift certificate from Jumeau.

The 2008 Total Estimated Cost of Child Abuse and Neglect in the United States report by PCA America, documents the pervasive and long-lasting effects of child abuse on children, their families, and society as a whole. Direct costs associated with child abuse and neglect including foster care services, hospitalization, mental health treatment, and law enforcement total more than $33 billion. Indirect costs of over $70 billion include loss of productivity as well as expenditures related to chronic health problems, special education, and the criminal justice system.

Jumeau routinely supports: non-profit events, school fundraisers, sports fundraisers, church/religious fundraisers. We are open to supporting any event or activity that helps enrich the community!!! If you have an event talk to Jumeau about participating.
