"FFA Donations for Likes" campaign raises $20,000 for National FFA

DES MOINES, IOWA — Goodyear® Farm Tires, a Titan Tire Corporation brand, recently donated $20,000 to the National FFA Foundation as a result of its “FFA Donations for Likes” social media campaign. After launching several new communication platforms, the company committed to donating $1 to the National FFA for each new follower on Twitter, fan on Facebook, and subscriber to the YouTube channel (up to $20,000). During the campaign, the Facebook page alone reached over 20,000 page likes.

 “We admire the work the National FFA does to raise leaders in agriculture. Over the years we have had the honor of partnering with them through our regional tire auctions and antique tractor restoration program. The FFA Donations for Likes campaign was a new, creative way for us to support this great organization while at the same time expanding our opportunity to connect with growers,” said Paul Reitz, president of Titan International.

"We are deeply appreciative of the generous gift from Titan," said Molly Ball, president of the National FFA Foundation. "Their generosity allows FFA to continue to develop students' leadership, growth and career success potential."
