[B]cause Media Encourages Volunteering and Giving Back to the Community.
Investing in your community is a great way to give back to those who have helped support your business.
As members of the community, we have a responsibility to help those that are less fortunate and contribute to the common good. [B]cause Media feels so strongly about this that we’ve come up with three incentives for our clients to help and give back.
We donate a minimum of 5 percent of our service fees to charitable organizations of your choice. At the end of your service contract you will receive a “Thank You” card from us along with a TisBest Charity Gift Card enclosed. Simply go to the TisBest.org website and choose from over 300 charities to donate and support.
Do Social. Do Good.
One of our favorite fundraising tools is Help Attack! It’s a fun, easy way to turn social actions into social good. Every time you “tweet” or post on your Facebook Page or use a Twitter #hashtag we pledge an agreed amount to a charity of your choice. Not only does this encourages you to use social media, but it helps a good cause too.
Service Rewards Program
One of our strong desires at [B]cause Media is to ensure that our business model reflects our personal beliefs — giving back to our community to make it a better place. We do that by volunteering and donating to causes and organizations that speak close to our hearts. Rarely, a weekend goes by without us doing some type of volunteer work — online or offline.
In the spirit volunteering and engaging our clients to give back to their community, we have come up with a service rewards price plan. Every hour you or your company (or team) volunteers in the community, we will deduct $10 for every volunteer hour (s) from your service fees and donate it to your favorite cause or charity. For example, if your company volunteers at the local community garden or food bank for 10 hours, you get to donate $100 of your [B]cause Media service fees to any nonprofit or cause. Sweet, right?
There are rules:
* The volunteer hours must be done within the service contract period with [B]cause Media | Social Communications
* Community service must be approved by a staff prior to participating in the [B]cause Media Service Rewards Program
* We have the right to approve or disapprove the community service (i.e., walking your neighbor’s dog is not an approved community service project, but participating in Meals-on-Wheels and transporting hot food to those in need is an approved community service project).
* Maximum of 20 volunteer hours allowed to earn [B]cause Media Service Rewards. However, that shouldn’t stop you from continuing to volunteer
Here are some of the charities [B]cause Media supports:

However, the choice is yours to decide which nonprofit organization receives your contribution. Choose the charity that speaks to your heart. Visit Idealist.org, Charity Navigator or GuideStar for information about nonprofit organizations and where your donations goes.
Give what you can regularly to the charities that make a difference to your local and national communities. The pleasant feeling of connectedness and the satisfaction of at least trying to make the world a better place will warm your heart as well as others.
