What do Haiti, Heifers, and "Hi-Tech" have in common? Bethel United Methodist Church in Bethel, CT
Bethel, CT, April 1, 2013 – Bethel United Methodist Church in Bethel, CT, will raise monies for reconstruction of Haiti after massive destruction by two recent natural disasters by combining social media with a national fundraising campaign.
For over 25 years, Bethel United Methodist Church (BUMC) has participated in Heifer International’
Heifer's REACH project will help more than 100,000 people overall – the largest animal project of its kind in Haiti's history. BUMC has created a fundraising campaign using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, combined with an online donation portal, to take its collections from the local level to a national level to raise as much money as possible to help reconstruct the agricultural infrastructure of Haiti.
During April and May 2013, BUMC seeks to raise at least $2,000 for REACH. To make a donation (minimum $5), please visit the group’s donation page at http://www.gofundme.com/
