Last month’s contest on the nonprofit fundraising website Razoo.com ended on March 31. NYRA did not win the contest, and thus did not win the $10,000 grand prize, but it still raised over $1,600, a good start to 2009’s NYRAthon.

In addition to the money raised, NYRA made its Facebook advertising debut during the contest, purchasing several ads on the social networking site. The ads have been effective, and NYRA is continuing its Facebook ad campaign in an effort to garner even more supporters and donors.

The Razoo contest may be over, but the 2009 NYRAthon will continue for the next couple months. This is an excellent opportunity to promote NYRA on your favorite social networking sites, and to your friends, classmates and family. You can donate to NYRA here.
