Have a birthday coming up? Perhaps a milestone Anniversary on the horizon? Now there is a fun way to celebrate your special occasion with your friends and loved ones. Facebook has created a new, seamless process to host a personalized event on its social platform that will enable you to raise funds for The Arc of Essex County.

Just launched in July, we are happy to report that three people have already created fundraisers for The Arc of Essex County through Facebook, and raised nearly $1,000 to date!  Rachel, one of the Facebook fundraisers, shared why she decided to fundraise on behalf of The Arc of Essex County:

“I love everything the Arc does and I’m hoping the money I raise will help improve the experience of some of the consumers because they deserve the best.”
