A week into our campaign, we’ve raised almost $6,000 and a LOT of awareness about “Guys Reading Poems.” Our video has received an incredible response and has been shared more than 375 times on Facebook. Our Fatelink Facebook page has received 75 new followers since the launch and we’ve received an amazing mention in ‘The Final Image‘ with the photo below:
