In 2014, RealEstateAgent.com decided to start a new end-of-summer tradition, celebrating the 2014 back to school season by giving free backpacks to some of our followers, stuffed with goodies from pencils to protractors in preparation for the upcoming school year! The contest was intended to give back to those who have made The Official Real Estate Agent Directory® what it is, the foremost online networking tool for real estate agents and home buyers. School shopping can get expensive, and we wanted to give back to some of our loyal followers.
Our expectations were more than met with the influx of entries coming from families across the country, all hoping that their cleverly captioned photos would win them a brand new bag full of all the supplies they needed for school. When the entry period for the 2014 RealEstateAgent.com Backpack Giveaway ended, we were amazed at the level of creativity that went into the entries received, and in the end, 8 families were selected to receive the grand prize.
There were Facebook posts with photos of smiling kids proudly displaying their winnings shared to the RealEstateAgent.com Facebook wall, where they received tons of likes and shares from elated friends and family members alike. Likewise, Pinterest was dotted with snapshots of eager little learners awaiting their fall semester to begin! We were humbled by the appreciation shown by the winners, who were of various ages and grades, from neighborhoods across the country.
Many of the families we helped expressed that our contest had allowed them to indulge in other ways, because a little extra cash can go a long way in a family that is always on the go! Real Estate Agents care about your family and we know how hard it can be to fill up your child’s knapsack for the beginning of a new school year. We are happy to be able to give back to the communities we serve, and we hope that our Backpack Giveaway winners from 2014 enjoyed their school supplies and backpacks throughout the school year. We also hope all of our entrants had fun taking their entry photos and coming up with clever caption ideas to get the picture noticed on our Pinterest board and Facebook timeline.
