Ford, 6ABC Sponsor #6abcFTK Campaign Benefiting THON

Ford and 6abc have teamed up once again to donate $1 each to THON for every social media post shared using the hashtag #6abcFTK. The two have partnered to support THON’s efforts since 2009.

“This campaign helps spread awareness for THON’s mission beyond State College and across the state,” THON 2018 Public Relations Director Haley Staub said.

6abc is a longstanding supporter of THON, helping the organization to expand its reach for nearly a decade now.

“From opening their studio for filming, to hosting digital campaigns like #6abcFTK and a THON Weekend live stream, 6abc and THON have grown together as partners dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children and families,” Staub said.

For every social media post that includes the hashtag #6abcFTK, both Ford and 6abc will donate $1 to THON, totaling $2 per post, up to $10,000. Share how you’re getting ready for THON weekend on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter and tag #6abcFTK to make your donation count.

You can find a stream of posts using the hashtag on 6abc’s websiteWe dance in 13!
