Working in Mexico, Nicaragua, Uganda, Kenya, India & the U.S.” content_bg_color=”” bordercolor=”” textcolor=”” trigger=”hover” placement=”top” class=”” id=””]HALO.[/popover] Jefferson City is one of six branch offices and is the hometown of HALO Founder, Rebecca Welsh.

My task was to update the HALO Jeff City Facebook, Twitter & Instagram before and during the Annual ArtReach Auction.

Updates to Facebook and Twitter before the event was easy to schedule using Buffer. The Buffer “Awesome Plan” allows users to have up to 10 social profiles and some other features for $10/month or $102/year.

Instagram updates are a little more difficult but if you leave your laptop on 24/7 you can use the Gramblr program for Windows or Mac. “Gramblr is a desktop application that allows you to upload pictures or videos on Instagram. It acts like an emulator – so that you don’t need a smartphone!”

Most importantly, the HALO “Jefferson City Learning Center community partners with Central Missouri Foster Care and Adoption, Jefferson City Academic Center, Jefferson City High School, National Christian Foundation, Rape and Abuse Crisis Shelter, and Salvation Army. HALO also is supporting a transitional living program (TLP) for the homeless and extreme at-risk youth in Jefferson City and the surrounding community.”

Please consider supporting HALO by giving a donation or shopping their online shop.
