Great results for Pango Mobile Parking's Food Bank Giving Facebook Campaign

A little while ago I wrote about Pango Mobile Parking's Facebook campaign where they would donate $1.00 to the Westmoreland County Food Bank for every new fan who "Likes" the Pango USA Facebook page during December.

Last week Dani Shavit, Pango Shyyny CEO, announced the results of their campaign and I really wanted to share them with you.

Over 86,000 people saw the campaign and Pango Mobile Parking USA got 204 people to Like their Facebookpage! This means that they have raised a lot of awareness for the Westmoreland County Food Bank and were able to present them a nice looking check. People from the Westmoreland County Food Bank state that the Pango donation will able them to purchase over $2,000.00 of food.

Below I attached the official press release from Pango Mobile Parking.
