A Salem business is making good on its promise to help children.
Two weeks ago, John Mitchell and the people at Salem Printing Company told people they would donate $1 to the Carilion Clinic Children's Hospital for every 'like' they got on their Facebook page.
The contest ended Thursday with 791 likes. Since the company started with 91 likes, that equals a $700 dollar donations.
Mitchell has already written the check which was mailed Friday. He hopes it will inspire others to give all year long.
"It should be something that resonates through the whole year," says manager John Mitchell, "Unless you give back, the feeling of giving back is just fantastic."
Mitchell says the company's Facebook page "blew up" after WDBJ7 aired the story on December 6.
In addition to the check, the company is giving the children's hospital coloring books.
