Social Media Finalist - 'Love to the rescue Ambassador' for Shriners Hospitals for Children was a partnership between the hospital with Vermont Teddy Bear to create a new iconic teddy bear. The bear was named via a social media voting campaign and then partnered with Vermont Teddy Bear Company to sell the bears with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Consumers can do even more to support homeless pets this holiday season by participating in the Partners for Pets' Hope for the Holidays Contest.

Not Facebook, but a cool contest. Coming together, united in goodwill. Vote daily to help United® spread 10 million award miles to participating nonprofit partners. Every nonprofit partner will receive at least 25,000 miles, which can be used toward travel, transport and other needs. And the more votes your favorite nonprofit partner gets each day, the more miles it will receive at the end of the campaign.
Prometheus' five regional offices used Facebook to go head-to-head to see which region could raise the most for Americans with disabilities.
