It’s here, FlockStars! For the first time ever, we will now count your Facebook fundraising dollars towards your fundraising goals! Simply create a fundraiser benefiting our foundation, Pledge the Pink Foundation, and ask your flock to support your efforts to raise money for the cause!
To receive credit for your Facebook fundraiser, you MUST screenshot your total amount raised and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org OR bring it with you in October. No exceptions!
