Tweet to Help Nonprofits
Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa – this season of celebration and giving is in full swing for 2010. While the tough econ-omy still poses challenges for many of us, I sense a feeling of real hope and anticipation for the year ahead. I hope you do, too. Let us remember also that there are wonderful ways you can contribute to the spirit of the season in time, talent, and treasure that will bring you more satisfaction than any gift under the tree. Think of your favorite charity, and do something to help them!
Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to share some tips and how-to’s on a topic I know and love – Twitter. It was geared towards nonprofits. My hope is that all in attendance, from the seasoned Twitter veteran to the beginner, came away with some good information to help their organizations. It was well received and for that, I am both humbled and grateful. If you were there, thank you for being a part of it.
I want to tell you about one of the sponsors of this event: Palmetto Technology Hub. Their mission is to provide technology support and resources to the South Carolina Lowcountry not-for-profit community. Check out their website, and like/follow them on Twitter @scpath.
Finally, here is a comprehensive list of local nonprofits on Twitter compiled by Tina Arnoldi of the Palmetto Technology Hub. Follow and tweet about them – it’s an easy way to use social media for social good. And by all means volunteer to help in other ways if you can!
