DENVER, March 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyRun Vacation Rentals has awarded the first donation in its new series of sweepstake campaigns called SkyRun Gives Back. These campaigns help SkyRun contribute to social awareness and show their appreciation to the hard-working individuals who help make our world a better place.
For the first campaign, YOU choose WE donate, SkyRun collected entries from various social media platforms. A randomly chosen winner then got to choose which of several charities would be awarded a $500 donation from SkyRun. The winner, Eric Young, chose Conscious Alliance noting "At the end of the day, no one deserves to be hungry, and I believe Conscious Alliance has figured out one of the most effective ways to get the community motivated to combat the widespread problem of hunger."
Conscious Alliance strives to "alleviate hunger on a national level" by "supporting communities in crisis through hunger relief and youth empowerment". Their 'Art That Feeds' food drives have provided over 2.6 million meals since 2002 - https://www.consciousalliance.org/.
The initial idea of donating to a non-profit organization came from SkyRun's Director of Location Support, Susan Graber. "It is great to work for a company that uses its publicity to help serve the non-profit community," Graber noted. The idea quickly grew to a forecasted series of sweepstake campaigns, dubbed SkyRun Gives Back, which can be seen here https://www.skyrun.com/our-story/skyrun-in-the-media#point3.
