Jan. 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Are you tired of using Facebook as just a way to view photos and see what your friends ate for dinner last night?  Well, you’re not alone!  The Gerard P Smith Insurance Agency in Webster has come up with a creative way to use Facebook as a vehicle to donate $3,000 as well as volunteer time to Rochester based charities!

The idea is very simple.  Smith Insurance will donate time and money to charities that can accumulate the most “likes” of their photo that has been posted to the Smith Insurance Facebook site (www.Facebook.com/GerardPSmithInsurance).

All Charities have to do is Email a photo representing their charity to the team at Smith Insurance (Ian@RochesterInsurance.com) and they will post it to their Facebook page.  From there, the charities just need to spread the word and tell all of their friends to “Like” their photo on the page.

So far, the contest has generated over 300 votes for 7 different charities and Smith Insurance is hoping to at least triple the number of charities that are participating.

The Gerard P. Smith Insurance Agency, located at 4 East Main Street at the Four Corners in Webster, has been a family-owned business for more than four decades.  It offers home, auto, life, and business insurance to customers throughout the region.
