BELMAR, N.J., April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- How did you fare this brutal winter? Thankfully, another summer season is upon us! Time to start dreaming of warm lazy days on the beach!
Last year, SEMGeeks, a full service digital marketing and web development agency located in Belmar, ran a special promotion, giving away $1,000 worth of New Jersey beach badges to celebrate the start of summer 2014 and help those still recovering from damages suffered during Hurricane Sandy. The giveaway was a great success, drawing in over 2,000 contestants!
This year, SEMGeeks wants to continue spreading summer cheer with the help of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties. Big Brothers Big Sisters has been a vital part of the community, helping change the lives of children for over a century. This organization is a wonderful support system for kids and gives them an opportunity to reach their full potential. "We all had a mentor and know how important a caring role model is for children to be successful in school and in life," said William Salcedo, BBBSMMC's Executive Director. "Our agency depends on the local community to help spread the word about our programs and the need for more people to step up and become volunteer Big Brothers or Sisters. We have 42 children on the waiting list, mostly boys, who need a mentor to help make a difference in their life." For more info visit www.bbbsmmc.org.
Chris Delany, SEMGeeks founder, says, "The Jersey Shore has always been built on its adolescents. Nonprofits don't always have the means to promote awareness for their cause. It's our goal as a responsible member of the community to align partnerships with great organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties. We couldn't have found a better partner for this year's beach badge giveaway."
The Jersey Shore Beach Badge Giveaway, which starts on April 27, runs until May 22 with three winners being announced every Wednesday. To enter the sweepstakes, all you have to do is "Like" the SEMGeeks Facebook page and then fill out an entry form to be eligible to win a free beach badge.
