For the month of December, Brave River Solutions will donate to the United Way of RI for each new “like” their Facebook page receives.


Warwick, RI – December 2011 – Rhode Island technology services company, Brave River Solutions, has created a unique way to give back to the community this holiday season. From now through the end of December, Brave River will make a donation to the United Way of Rhode Island’s Community Impact Fund for every new Facebook fan they receive.

Known as “Like for a Cause,” the campaign is simple; for every person who “likes” Brave River’s Facebook page, the company will donate 50 cents, an amount they hope will add up quickly.

“The United Way of Rhode Island has accomplished a lot to better this state and support its residents. With the holiday season and winter upon us, we wanted to help support their continued efforts in building long-term solutions to community issues,” says Brave River’s president, Ernie Gaines. “By running this giving campaign through Facebook, we’re hoping to raise awareness for the United Way in addition to simply making a donation. With the constantly growing number of social media users, it’s easier than ever before to spread a message across a large audience.”

With more than 800 million active Facebook users worldwide, it has truly become one of the largest media sources in the world. The simplicity of sharing news updates, recommending links and communicating with contacts has presented the perfect opportunity for Brave River to conduct its holiday giving campaign. Stories from Rhode Islanders impacted by the United Way will be featured on company’s Facebook page throughout the campaign, with new posts added regularly to raise awareness of the United Way’s impact on the community and its residents.
