InRETURN Partners with G-Team for Fundraising Initiative

If 20 People Donate $10, InReturn Can Give 10 Production Asscociates Two New Textbooks

 

Cincinnati, OH – InRETURN and G-Team (http://www.groupon.com/g-team), the philanthropic arm of Groupon, announce the launch of a local campaign to Give 10 InRETURN Production Associates Two New Textbooks.

 

The InRETURN campaign will be available on Groupon’s Cincinnati/Dayton G-Team page beginning on Tuesday, September 13th through Friday, September 16th. Utilizing G-Team’s collective action model, Groupon followers can pledge support for the fundraising initiative in increments of $10, with each $10 providing two new textbooks.

 

A donation of $10 helps InReturn provide their production associates with books to help increase their literacy as they learn about current events, social interactions, and interpersonal skills.

 

“We are excited to employ the collective action model of G-Team to raise support for individuals with neurological disease, disorder or injury,” said Jayme Joers, Administration and Program Development Assistant. “We look forward to creating new awareness for InRETURN as one of the first local organizations in Cincinnati and Dayton to be featured on G-Team.”

 

100% percent of the G-Team campaign proceeds will be used to provide new textbooks to InRETURN Production Associates.
