Check-In for Charity in July

Bottom Shape

We are very excited to announce the next charity we will be donating to in our monthly Facebook and Foursquare Check-In for Charity campaign! We really love the idea of using social media for a good cause, and we’ve had lots of interest and positive feedback which really encourages us to continue this inspiring campaign!

For anyone who is unfamiliar with our Check-In for Charity project, every time we receive a check-in on Facebook or Foursquare we donate $0.50 to the charity or non-profit of the month (capped at $50 per month).  So, by simply checking-in at Boot Camp Digital you will be supporting some really wonderful local non-profit organizations, and making a big difference!


Last month we collected your check-ins for making a donation to Sheltered Paws – a great animal focused non-profit, based in Cincinnati.  Sheltered Paws Dog Rescue was established in 1997, they are a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, all of their work is done by volunteers.  This organization is dedicated to helping save shelter dogs by placing them in temporary, loving foster homes. This organization was suggested by Katie Kotowski (@kjkotowski) – thanks a lot for the suggestion!


For the month of July, your check-ins will be donated to 1-800-RUNAWAY. The mission of the National Runaway Switchboard (NRS) is to help keep America’s runaway, homeless and at-risk youth safe and off the streets. The National Runaway Switchboard provides education and solution-focused interventions, offers non-sectarian, non-judgmental support, respects confidentiality, collaborates with volunteers, and responds to at-risk youth and their families 24 hours a day. A big THANK YOU goes out to @ModrnDilettante for suggesting an awesome charity that truly makes a difference in people’s lives.

It only takes a moment to check-in at Boot Camp Digital on Facebook or Foursquare and you will increase the donation to this great non-profit! 🙂
