In case you didn't see the commercials run by Cincinnati Children's during the holidays, we have them below. These new TV ads feature Cincinnati Children’s patients and families and one of their cancer researchers, all of whom volunteered to share their stories. Very moving, worth a quick view.

How to help Kindervelt Market & Gala on Facebook
In order of time required, from a few seconds to a few minutes:
1. Go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kindervelt-Market-Bash/196273620443724
a. Click Like
2. Any time a post by Kindervelt Market and Gala appears in your Home feed:
a. Like it.
b. AND Share it
a. Scroll down to where you’ll see a box that says something like “38 Friends Like Kindervelt Market & Gala.” Beneath the tiny photos of your friends it says “Invite Your Friends to Like This Page.” To the right, it says “See All.” Click on “See All.” A page listing all your friends will come up. Invite any friends who live in the tri-state area, even if (especially if!) they aren’t members of Kindervelt.
4. Ask each member of your KV group to also do these things.
5. Thank you! And if you do the same thing at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kindervelt-of-Cincinnati-Childrens-Hospital-Medical-Center/117635305004084?ref=br_tf it’ll help Kindervelt get the word out for all our other events and news!
For those who are interested in understanding why these things are important (everyone else can stop reading now):
When you LIKE a page, a certain percentage of posts made by that page’s administrators will show up in your Home feed. Facebook doesn’t distribute every post to every liker, though – they test the waters by sending out the post to a few of a page’s likers first. If some of them then like the post, FB says, “Hm, this post is interesting to people who like that page – let’s send it to a few more of them.” So when you like a post, what you’re doing is helping it get distributed to a larger percentage of those who’ve already liked the page.
When you also SHARE the post, it goes to a certain percentage of your friends who HAVEN’T already liked the page. If some of them then like it, it’ll go to more of your friends. So by sharing, you’re helping distribute that post to people who otherwise would never see the post. This is why it’s important not only to LIKE a post but to also SHARE that post.
We invite our friends to like the KV Market & Gala page because when/if they do like it, the same thing happens for them -- a certain percentage of the page’s posts will show up in their Home feeds. If they like it/share it, it’ll again get greater distribution.
If we can get every KV member with a FB account to do all of these things, we can end up promoting our event to literally thousands of people, and all for free. So please, if you only have a few seconds, go like the page, and when you see a post go past, like and share it. When you have a few minutes, invite your tri-state friends to like the page. And at your next meeting, ask your group to help too. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
