Condé Systems Inc. hosted its Charity Giveaway, offering customers approximately 1,000 small key tags free of charge on the condition that they be donated to a good cause of the recipients’ choosing.
The company was immediately fielding over 100 requests for tags after the giveaway was announced on Condé’s Facebook page on September 12, and within the first 10 minutes, not a single tag remained, according to Social Media Manager Bobbi McMullen.
Two businesses were recipients of about 600 tags each.
Sandy Litomisky of Elsie, Missouri-based vinyl, screen and sublimation printing business Racer Girl Graphics says she plans to hold the Free Fall Festival to raise funds for non-profits in her community. “My idea is to donate personalized keychains stating that Racer Girl Graphics is a proud supporter of the Free Fall Festival,” Litomisky says, adding that attendees can have their pictures taken in front of a fall scenery backdrop. The pictures will then be used to decorate the keychains. “Any and all donations made from this will be given to local food banks.”
The second business to receive the free key tags was Tietje Creative, located in Roanoke, Louisiana. Trudy Tietje says she will donate the keychains from Condé to be included in the goodie bags given to participants in the 7th Annual Melissa Doise 5K Hope for the Miracle Breast Cancer Race to benefit the Melissa Doise Hope for the Miracle Foundation. The charity was founded in memory of local resident Melissa Doise, who lost her battle to breast cancer in 2009, and aims to raise breast cancer awareness.
This is the first time that Condé has hosted this promotion; however, McMullen says the company plans to arrange another giveaway in the future. “It was very successful and we hope to do it again,” she tells A&E magazine.
