Social Media and You: Changing Lives From Right Where You Are by Ken Mueller
Today is Twive & Receive.
That might not mean much to you, but that’s the Twitter equivalent of “Give and Receive”, and I wrote about this interesting concept not that long ago, because I love the idea of businesses and nonprofits using social media as a way of promoting great causes.
Twive & Receive is a 24-hour online fundraising contest, pitting non-profits in about 250 cities against each other. All of them will be raising money online today, with the top three fundraisers sharing a portion of $30,ooo in prize money. The idea is the brainchild of the folks at Razoo, which I believe to be the best of the online fundraising platforms. And really, everyone wins.
