At Wrap Guys, we are big believers in supporting the incredible local communities that we serve. Although we are based out of Langley, BC, our wrap services extend beyond the Lower Mainland and throughout North America. We recently wrapped up (pun intended) our hugely successful charity contest where we were able to donate $1000 to the Seeds of Hope Children’s Ministry and a partial vehicle wrap to Rabbitats Rabbit Rescue in Richmond.
The success of the contest far exceeded our expectations. We were so blown away by the incredible participation and community involvement from all participating organizations that we wanted to take a moment to recap the contest and thank everyone for their support.
The charity contest
We knew that we wanted to make a donation of sorts; however, with so many great charitable organizations out there, we had a difficult time narrowing it down to just one. That is why we decided to involve our local community in the nomination and selection process.
In order to maximize community involvement and engagement in the contest, we decided to separate it into two parts. In the first part, we asked our local community to nominate charitable organizations that were important to them. We were blown away by the number of nominations we received, 57 unique charities in total.
In the second part of the contest, we asked everyone to vote for one of the 57 nominated charities. We weren’t exactly sure how many votes to expect, but we never imagined that over 4,200 people would participate.
The contest results
We ran the voting portion of the contest for 2 months. In these 2 months, Seeds of Hope Children’s Minstry and Rabbitats Rabbit Rescue were able to generate incredible community support and turn the contest into a 2-way race, swapping first and second position on a daily basis. The margin of votes between the 2 organizations was so narrow right up until the contest closed that none of us knew how it would end.
In the end, Seeds of Hope Children’s Ministry ended up getting the most votes with an incredible total of 1428! Rabbitats finished close behind with a total of 1372 votes. With such an amazing community effort displayed by both organizations and less than 50 votes separating the 2 of them, we wanted to create a second place prize to reward the awesome effort displayed by Rabbitats and their following. After learning that Rabbitats was interested in a custom vehicle wrap, we decided that we would provide them with a complimentary partial vehicle wrap to help brand the Rabbitats van.
