I recently had an idea to combine social media and holiday giving, and today I decided to follow through. Here’s how in easy steps!
1) Pick five friends/social media contacts
2) Give $25 (or other amount!) to good cause of your choice
3) Send five friends an e-card/message to let them know you’re thinking of them, and that thought made you give to charity.
4) Encourage your friends to keep it rolling! One donation can turn into $150, and the next group of people tagged can push it over $600!
I’m encouraging private notifications to keep it in the intimate holiday spirit and to avoid socially shaming poor people. It’s a way to let people know you’re thinking of them and do good at the same time.
Have the brightest season, whatever that brings for you,
