Selfie-Less Forum Attendees Draw Support for Hurricane Ida Relief

by Catalyst Corporate | Oct 19, 2021

Every smiling face makes a difference. Every penny counts.

This notion holds true, especially when it comes to lending a helping hand to credit union colleagues during times of hardship. The evidence is found in the many priceless selfies shared at Catalyst Corporate’s Economic & Payments Forum last month.

Thank you Forum selfie participants!For the second year in a row, Catalyst hosted an engaging social media selfie contest – as an opportunity not only for attendees to interact with one another and represent their own credit union, but also to “show up” for credit unions in Louisiana impacted by Hurricane Ida.

This year’s attendees received a “fill in the blank” selfie sign in their Forum Engagement Kit, with instructions on how to participate in the social media fundraiser. All donations benefited the Louisiana Credit Union Foundation's Hurricane Ida relief efforts. By snapping a selfie with the sign and sharing it to Catalyst Corporate’s Facebook page, Catalyst Corporate made a $25 contribution to the foundation on each participant's behalf.

Altogether, the social media activity helped raise $1,000 for the Louisiana Credit Union Foundation’s ongoing assistance and aid.
