Area Nonprofit Selects Beaver Creek For Fundraising Event
the Amanda Geissler Memorial Foundation will donate to B.V. through social media participation
Beaver Creek’s Reserve was chosen by the Amanda Geissler Memorial Foundation for their latest social media fundraising event July-August.
The Amanda Geissler Memorial Foundation honors late Thorp native Amanda Geissler, whose passion for educational opportunities for women and children left such an impact, friends and family began the nonprofit after her passing.
Geissler’s passion for education began after her experience volunteering in a kindergarten classroom in Ghana, Africa. That dedication grew as she continued mentoring young girls in Milwaukee and Minneapolis, also teaching English to women and children internationally in Peru.
The foundation, alongside nonprofit Pencils of Promise, has successfully built two schools in Geissler’s honor. Another ongoing project the foundation does is their ‘Social Media event’ fundraiser, which is incredibly easy for folks to donate to, thanks to – you guessed it – social media.
Chosen by the foundation at the end of June, the Beaver Creek Reserve fundraiser began on July 1 and will continue through August 30. To participate, all you need to do is visit Beaver Creek or any state or national park, snap a picture of yourself outdoors there, and send the photo to the foundation’s Facebook page or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The foundation will donate $20 to Beaver Creek for every photo received!
