Several design students participated in philanthropy using Facebook as their tool. These schools are a part of the Career Education Corporation (CEC), which donated $5,000 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC).

The CEC schools that contributed were Brooks Institute, Harrington College of Design, Collins College and the International Academy of Design and Technology. CEC committed to donating $1 each time someone clicked “like" on one of the school's Facebook pages. The CEC allotted a two week time period for the campaign or until the donation reached the maximum of $5,000, which it did.

"We're grateful for this outpouring of support for this wonderful cause," said Tom McNamara, senior vice president of the Art and Design strategic business unit at CEC.

This isn't the first time design students and other students with various degrees associated with CEC have worked with RMHC. The students and staff have logged more than 3,000 volunteer hours since 2009.
