>Vote for your Favorite Charity – Win a Video Spotlight!


It’s hard to keep up with all the 501 (c)(3) non-profit agencies in the Greater New Bern area! There are so many good causes and they all need exposure to help spread their word.

Thea Kincaid of Thea’s Ideas (the face of New Bern Now) and I decided to launch a contest to shine the Video Spotlight to the winner for free (normally $100). The contest begins immediately and will run until midnight, February 19th.

Rules: You can vote once a day and you must include your name (to make sure people are voting once) and the non-profit’s name. Tell us who your favorite non-profit is via email, comment below, or comment on New Bern Now’s Facebook page and help your charity receive more exposure in the community!

*** Please know, there are hundreds of community groups in the area and they aren’t all 501 (c)(3) non-profits. I’m sure I’m missing some. If I didn’t include your charity please send me their contact information in an email and I’ll add them to the list. I need your help to update New Bern Now’s website to separate tax exempt organizations and community groups.

Current videos have the potential to reach over 20,000 visitors!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
