MILAN, Ill. — A public exchange between two local businesses has turned into a fundraiser that's pulled in over $2000.
Finn's Grill and the Quad City Animal Welfare Center began addressing each other through their signage on Tuesday, May 4, beginning a "sign war."
Both groups continued the conversation on May 5.
On Thursday, May 6, Finn's Grill took the opportunity to turn the exchange into something more.
On their Facebook page, the restaurant made a call for fans to share their post, pledging that the business would donate $1 to the shelter for every share it got, up to $2000.
Finn's Grill also offered to accept $1 donations in the store, and offering to match each one up to another $1,000.
According to Finn's Grill, fans hit the $2000 share goal with four hours of the post's publishing.
Finn's Grill then hinted at an extra surprise if the original sign war donations post reaches 5,000 shares.
