Cox is a long-standing partner of BGCA. In addition to the company's ongoing financial and in-kind contributions, Cox will donate one dollar to the organization for each snow globe created this holiday season, up to $10,000.

"Cox's social giving campaign offers a great opportunity for the public to give the gift of a great future to youth in need this holiday season," said Roxanne Spillett, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America.  "We are grateful for Cox's strong support of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and their dedication to helping young people in crisis."

The Holiday Digeez Snow Globe is an easy way for Cox customers and fans to share a fun and creative holiday greeting with friends, family and business colleagues. The campaign is running alongside the Holiday Sweepstakes on the corporate and local Cox Facebook pages through the start of the New Year.

"Supporting local communities is part of the DNA at Cox," said Adam Naide, executive director social media. "Not only is this promotion spreading holiday cheer within online and local Cox communities, but our partnership with the BGCA is also using the power of social media to raise critically needed funds for Boys & Girls Clubs."

Cox customers and fans can visit Cox's Facebook page to make their own Holiday Snow Globe.
