STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — US Coachways is driven to stop hunger! The national bus charter company is excited to launch a new RAZ Mobile fundraising campaign and Facebook sweepstakes to benefit Stop Hunger Now, an organization dedicated to ending hunger in this lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable in time for #GivingTuesday.
Each week beginning Nov. 24, 2014 and continuing to the end of the year, US Coachways’ Facebook fans will have a chance to win a $25 Visa gift card by donating at least $100 to Stop Hunger Now and liking and commenting on the weekly campaign post. Only one winner will be chosen each week. In addition, those who donate $1,000 or more to Stop Hunger Now will receive a $200 bus or limo rental credit from US Coachways.
According to Rod Brooks, president and CEO of Stop Hunger Now, “What we want everyone to know is that hunger is solvable and is the common thread among the world’s most challenging issues. When hunger is targeted, you give leverage and hope to every other cause including poverty, disease, education and the welfare of women and children.”
Ed Telmany, CEO of US Coachways, said, “We are very pleased to support Stop Hunger Now in its efforts to end hunger worldwide and are excited to launch this campaign. Giving back to the community is important to US Coachways. We’re proud to do our small part to help Stop Hunger Now make a lasting difference in lives around the world.”
Donations to Stop Hunger Now are tax-deductible and support the costs of expanding Stop Hunger Now, enabling Stop Hunger Now to substantially increase the number of meals produced each year.
