Atlanta Rides for Wounded Warriors

With temperatures soaring over 100 degrees, brave motorcycle enthusiasts joined in the WVFJ (the Joy-FM, Atlanta) Wounded Warriors Motorcycle Ride.

The caravan of cycles spanned two miles and raised more than $6,000 for the Wounded Warriors. The round trip covered more than 240 miles.

One of the groups attending the ride was the Moo Cow Bikers, a group inspired by Truett and Dan Cathy (Chick-fil-A). This family fun event gives riders an opportunity to share their faith and raise funding for great causes like The Wounded Warriors.

But She Has a Great Personality

Radio listeners have more than just a passing fancy for their favorite air personalities. A new study finds that listeners feel they have a relationship with their on-air favorite(s).

The study conducted by the Annenberg School for Communications & Journalism found:

  • 75% of respondents purposefully turn on their radio when their favorite announcer is on the air

  • 72% talk to friends about the on-air announcer and what they heard on the air

  • 70% follow their favorite personalities via social media

  • 47% of respondents considered making purchases based on on-air personality recommendations

The findings underscore the loyalty and trust that listeners have with their favorite on-air personalities. Read more about this strong connections between listeners and their favorite announcers in this Katz Media article http://bit.ly/OsDdK2

Of Mouse and Money

Online donations for non-profits accounted for about 6.3% of all overall fundraising in 2011.

Online giving was up in 2011 for all areas, except for International Affairs organizations, where online giving was down 55% (mainly due to the large amount of online giving in 2010 for the Haiti earthquake).

End-of-year giving accounts for most online donations, with December being the month with the largest percentage at 20.3%.

Blackbaud recently released their 2011 Index of Online Giving. See how online giving increased in six of the seven designated sectors of Arts, Education, Environment/Animals, Healthcare, Human Services, International Affairs and Public/Society Benefits. http://bit.ly/MvD6fs

Boomers vs. Gen X on Digital Media

While boomers own their fair share of smartphones and have registered for accounts on Facebook and Twitter, they are not as likely as Generation X (ages 32-47) to use the technology.

There is one exception, however. Boomer e-mail usage is comparable to other younger age groups (30-49 years old and 18-29 years old).

A new report by Pew Internet & American Life Project finds that boomers will use technology when there is a practical benefit. Find out if social is the best way to reach the group you want to with this e-Marketer article http://bit.ly/PUL3GK
