About Keaton’s Korral:

Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines has been a partner of Give Kids The World since 2000. Through its generous support of Keaton’s Korral, 7,300 families each year have been able to experience  the fun of horse and pony rides, as they wear western hats and get to live out their cowboy dreams. Keaton’s Korral was named for Keaton White, an alumni wish child who spoke at a Wheaton |Bekins conference shortly before he lost his battle with cancer. His story touched so many of the agents and  employees, as he told of his dream to ensure every child got to experience the joy he felt during his time at the Village.  “Give Kids The World was one of the happiest times of my life,” White said. “I just want to be sure that someday another little boy or girl and their family are loved just as much as me and my family were loved.”

    Good article in regards to the social media and straight to the point. However you have to realize that social media is intended to be social. It’s about getting together with individuals, definitely not robots. Scheduled posts should be monitored for shares, comments, etc . As you stated a great quick “ thank you ” can go a long way.
