Already known for his regular outreach to the local community, Summerville Orthodontist, Dr. Britt Reagin, has announced his latest plans to give cash donations of up to $1,000 to three Summerville-area schools.
By opening voting to local residents, the community-at-large has a rare opportunity to choose three schools to receive either $1,000, $500 or $250. With voting open until April 30, each member of the community is urged to act soon to make their voice heard.
“The spark for this campaign came to me after reviewing the donations made to schools over the past year. Many campaigns were launched by parents and the financial need in the local school system became obvious,” says Dr. Reagin, owner of Reagin Orthodontics.
“This inspired me to put forward some money so that students, parents and local groups could mobilize and help their schools earn a donation. I want to help cast light on a worthwhile cause while simultaneously motivating other businesses in the community to enact similar actions,” Ragin said.
Social media is Dr. Reagin’s publicity vehicle of choice due to its ease of access and high adoption rates in the local area.
By voting online, the local community can choose which Summerville-area schools will benefit from Reagin Orthodontics’ generous cash donations.
Voting is easy; simply visit the practice’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ReaginOrthodontics) and select the school of your choice by clicking the ‘Supporting Schools- Vote Here’ icon.
When voting closes on April 30, the three schools with the most votes will enter a final round, where one will be drawn to win a $1,000 donation. The second-drawn school receives $500, and the third $250.
“I highly value my own education and want to make a difference to the futures of others. By involving the local community I believe we can strengthen our spirit and do good collectively. Cast your votes now,” Reagin said.
