Thank you to all the MSM and INT employees who participated in the MSM Pet Photo Contest and pet supply drive. More than 50 photographs were entered in the categories of dog, cat and other. Entries cost $5per submission. Including additional monetary donations, MSM raised over $300 for Orphans of the Storm in Riverwoods, along with a generous collection of pet supplies. Voters had three opportunities to submit votes; paper ballots, which were given to all MSM and INT employees in the Buffalo Grove office, email ballots, which were sent to all MSM and INT employees, and through Facebook. Each "like" a photo received was counted as a vote. The value of social media was evident in the results, as employees who requested their Facebook followers to vote for their photos came out on top.
The winners in each category were:
Thanks again to all who participated, whether you entered a photo in the contest, brought donations for the shelter, or simply voted. It all helped make MSM's June & July community outreach program a huge success!
