MIX 101.5 Uses #WorkFromHome Selfies with Listeners as Fundraiser for Food Bank

MIX 101.5 Work From Home Selfies

MIX 101.5 staffers shared their #WorkFromHome selfies to help raise funds for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

WRAL-FM MIX 101.5 created a MIX of fun things for a good cause last week.  Taking selfies + working from home = donations to help the Triangle community.  MIX ran a #WorkFromHome promotion on the station’s Facebook page.  For every selfie posted in the comment, showing MIX how listeners work from home, WRAL-FM donated $1 to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, up to $500.

“Let’s spread the love and positivity as we become MIX 101.5, Your Work From Home Station!” read the post.

Listeners dove in.

“We reached our goal on this!!” reported WRAL-FM Digital Assets Coordinator Kristen Kokkelenberg.  “Wahoo, tons of cute pictures and lots of interaction with our listeners, I loved it! We had more than enough comments by the end of the week.”

Kokkelenberg executed the mini-fundraiser to promote MIX’s updated-for-the-times branding as “Your Work From Home Station.”  In another example of connection, the idea originally came from WRAL-FM Promotions Director Jason Newton after he received a fun email from WRAL-FM Senior Account Executive Steve Motter.

WRAL-FM’s Kristen Kokkelenberg’s selfie helped launch a fun fundraiser for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

“It all started with Steve Motter sending a pic of just his slippers saying he and the working dads are hard at it,” said Newton.  “Then pics started popping up everywhere on social just like Kristen’s.   I just thought it would be an easy/fun way to help generate some support.”
