  41. 64. Stand up to Cancer Telethon Facebook Credits <ul><li>The Entertainment Industry Foundation’s second national Stand Up To Cancer telethon accepted Facebook credits as donations this year. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Facebook users simply visited the SU2C Facebook Page, which hosted a live stream of the pre-show and broadcast event, in order to place their donations. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>They could then share their donations through wall posts, spreading the word about the charity.Facebook helped promote the cause on its Facebook Page and the Facebook credits page, and although SU2C doesn’t reveal how much it collected on the page, it did receive 150,000 new “Likes” during the campaign. </li></ul></ul>
  42. 65. Timberland Earthkeepers Virtual Forest App <ul><li>Creating Virtual Forests with Timberland’s Earthkeeper app helps plant real trees. The original version, which launched in 2008, helped plant 1 million total trees in China, Haiti and Nepal. </li></ul><ul><li>A new version that launched in October teams up with Trees for the Future and the Yéle Haiti Foundation to focus on planting trees in Haiti. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For each set amount of virtual trees planted, Timberland commits to planting a certain amount of real trees. For every five virtual trees planted, for example, Timberland commits to planting one real tree. After a user has planted 25 total virtual trees, another two real trees are planted. Users can plant trees in either their own forests or in their friends’ forests. In the new app’s first month, users’ tree planting has committed Timberland to planting about 3,000 new trees in Haiti. </li></ul></ul>
  43. 66. Kohls Cares for Kids Facebook Contest <ul><li>To celebrate the 10th anniversary of its philanthropic program Kohl’s Cares, Kohl’s department stores decided to let Facebook users decide where to spend a donation to education. The company gave away $500,000 to each of the 20 schools that solicited the most votes on the company’s Facebook Page. Facebook fans could vote up to 20 times, but no more than five times for one school. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Voters were also encouraged to leave ideas for what the schools could do with the money, and every school needed at least one idea contribution in order to be eligible for the contest. The campaign ended on September 3. More than 2 million people submitted more than 12 million votes. Although Kohl’s had committed to the same donation amount regardless of participation, the Facebook component successfully spread the word and earned the company 1.6 million new Facebook fans in six weeks. </li></ul></ul>
