Angels in the Twitterverse

One of the things I love about social media, and Twitter in particular, is its capacity for good.  I’ve seen it in the continued support I get from people I don’t know, and the countless retweets spreading the word about a missing child or the urgent need for bone marrow or blood donors.

Just last Saturday, the incredible @megfowler, a coordinator with Social Media for Social Change,  organized the #stayinandhelp ‘pajama party’ urging the Twitterverse to stay home and donate what they would have spent out on the town to City Harvest, a charity dedicated to feeding the hungry in NYC. (@Miss604, one of Vancouver’s top bloggers, wrote a terrific piece on SM4SC, Meg and her amazing efforts here.)

I’m happy to report that more than $1,400 has been donated to date – but it’s not too late to contribute.  Visit  http://stayinandhelp.us/ and give generously.

There are dozens, probably hundreds of stories of good works being done through social media – and I want to showcase as many as I can.  Send me your favorite stories here, and I’ll write about them and feature the wonderful people behind these acts of kindness.  Or, tweet me @CathyBrowne and use the phrase #TwitterAngels, and I’ll get back to you.

Thanks:-)
