Rockin' 4 Relief 2012 is already bigger than ever! Dierbergs has decided to give us even more locations than last year and we already have had a huge donation.
Thanks to social media, Rockin' 4 Relief is huge. I've been sending out messages to various athletes/celebrities saying this: "I'm 15 and raised over $12,000 for families of Police/Fire/EMS killed on the job. Mind RT? www.rockin4relief.com Thanks!"
I've gotten many RT (retweets) which means everybody who follows this celebrity or athlete can see what I sent to them. I've gotten so much support from them and it is neat to see somebody famous care about something that is (at the moment) local.
I've used Twitter to send out these messages, which has greatly helped our publicity. We recently got an extra response that I never imagined would happen.
After sending that message to Ms. Oprah WInfrey, we received an answer saying she will match the $12,000 we've already raised and add $1,000 to get us to a total of $25,000! Everything we have done in the past 3 years doubled with in seconds thanks to Ms. Winfrey.
