When the charity Let's Get Ready learned they would be competing in the American Giving Awards, they reached out to the team at Viral Technologies, a market intelligence company, and asked for their social media knowledge and resources to help win much needed funds for their organization.

Viral Technologies used Radian6 to find conversations and influencers, share information and engage with fans, all with the goal of connecting with supporters across the social web and win the most votes. Let’s Get Ready! won second place in the Chase Giving Awards and took home $500,000, to help students obtain post secondary education.
