To All GSOFamilies Members and Supporters:
GSOFamilies is a local community of families. As a local mom, I founded the group in May 2012 to provide a comprehensive compilation of Greensboro area family-friendly activities and businesses.
The group has grown to be a staple for many families in Greensboro. At this point, we have over 2200 fans on Facebook, over 350 members on Meetup, and over 800 followers on Twitter. We have a very active Facebook group with over 2300 members (one sub group has more than 5300 members!), and several smaller subgroups for specific demographics, such as single parents, school clothing swaps, fitness, and more. Our Pinterest page has about 1700 followers, and our more recently launched Instagram page has about 700 followers.
The cost of running and maintaining just the technical aspects of GSOFamilies through our continued growth is overwhelming, and the GSOFamilies group is hosting an online auction to help offset these costs. GSOFamilies is completely free to join, and thousands of local families turn to our community when seeking local businesses to patronize. Our members share personal reviews, suggestions, and opinions, as well as anecdotes for raising children in the Greensboro area, and have come together into a well-respected, welcoming, and thriving community.
We are asking for donations of items, services, or experiences for our online auction. All donors will receive publicity via the GSOFamilies webpage and social media leading up to and during the auction, as well as an official public thank you. The auction will be held online on the GSOFamilies site from August 14 - August 21, 2016. The funds raised from the items you donate will directly benefit GSOFamilies and our members and allow our entire organization to continue to operate at no cost to our members. Simply complete the form below.
With the generous support of people like you, we will be able to continue to support local Greensboro families and provide a free, often utilized, and very necessary resource for local parents and children. To learn more about GSOFamilies, we invite you visit our website at www.GSOFamilies.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration, and we look forward to your continued support.
