The four-week Facebook contest encouraged users to submit a selfie volunteering at their favorite charity. At the end of each week, the photos were voted upon to determine the winning volunteer and charity. A final voting period was held for the four finalists.

“TruStone Financial has always been rooted in the communities we serve,” states Katie Grindeland, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “This was an uplifting social media contest with so many deserving non-profit organizations. The campaign embodied the credit union philosophy of people-helping-people. It’s an honor to support organizations that share this same passion.”
