You all know how I feel about effecting real world change with social media, sharing our successes with others and helping out on and off line. Even so, I am still able to be wowed and floored by the generosity of my social media community. Domestic violence is an issue near to my heart, and this week the people in my ever growing social media family helped a strangers family start a new life able to move past it.
Sure, I gave, and plan to give a little more this weekend. But the point here is that you gave. We all did. And because of that, because someone reached out for our help through David Armano, our friend and colleague, and we answered their call, they get the freedom to live violence-free that everyone deserves. You can read the full story over on Logic + Emotion, and see the ChipIn widget there also if you’d like to donate, but suffice to say your generosity made it possible to raise nearly $14000 in 24 hours to help someone in need. You? Are Awesome.
