This spring, College Bookstore teamed up the Ohio University’s Habitat for Humanity. The girls on the College Bookstore account set up a table on the corner of Court Street, across from the actual bookstore. Along with the table, they also had a huge Plunkit game set up with options for prizes at the bottom. Students would sign into Facebook with the computer and simply “like” the College Bookstore page (facebook.com/bobcatgear). With every like, one dollar would be donated to habitat for humanity. After liking the page, students would be able to drop a coin into the Plunkit game and would receive a prize depending on the space in which the coin landed. Many of the prizes included coupons to the bookstore; the biggest prize today was a $50 dollar gift card. One of the most popularly landed on spaces was extra five dollar donation that would be in addition to dollar from the like. Others last week included a $100 gift card for itunes. Account executive Kristin Yerecic said that it was really great to have people from Habitat for Humanity there to help with the fundraising and hand out flyers and other information about the organization.
