Social Media can benefit Backpack Programs in WNC

Sending out blog and asking people to pass it on to others. Here is a message from Cathy, the owner of Seize The Photo:

My name is Cathy Yount and I am the owner of Seize the Photo ( in Newton, NC. A few months ago, I joined forces with TPS Photography ( in Morganton, NC and our studios now work together frequently. Myself and Chris Garner (owner of TPS) got together and decided to spearhead a campaign to benefit the Backpack Programs in each of our respective counties. We have invited several people to become fans of each of our Facebook pages; for each new fan (starting at 1400), we pledged to donate $0.50 EACH to the Backpack Program. So far, STP has 304 new fans and TPS has 293 new fans, for a combined total of $298.50 raised! Seize the Photo also pledged an additional $50 for reaching an individual goal on Tuesday evening, bringing the overall total to $348.50. Our contest ends on Sunday evening, but we still need help raising money for the Backpack Program. I’m calling on you to help us out by visiting our Facebook page ( and clicking the “like” button, as well as sharing this email with all of your friends and asking them to do the same. I encourage you to act quickly so that Catawba County can win the competition and raise the most money for an awesome cause. Thank you so much for your help, and please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any questions. Have a wonderful day!
