Vox’s Brian King and Brad Haan met up with SACWAS at Michigan State University’s Sparticipation this past week. Sparticipation is a festival venue where various student-led organizations recruit and promote their causes. SAWAS used the event to launch a social media fundraising campaign to rehabilitate another non-functioning well. Whenever a university student follows @voxunited on twitter, an anonymous donor will match it with $1 up $2500. It’s an easy way for students to network and make a difference.
According RAEF, the team at SACWAS is motivated. “We’re handing out hundreds of flyers, promoting it on our social media outlets and chalking the sidewalks with 1 follow = $1 = clean water.”
