“One person can make a difference, and every person should try.” ~ John F. Kennedy
It’s been almost five years since my first foray into social fundraising to raise money from my friends and followers to send a young woman, Leng Sopharath to college. Ever since, I’ve continued to raise money for my favorite charity, the Sharing Foundation that takes care of children in Cambodia. I’ve donated my share of the royalties from my book, The Networked Nonprofit, and feel proud that its been able to support some wonderful Cambodian youngsters.
So when Amy Neumann aka @charityideas if I’d participate in doing some good during holidays, had to say yes.
The #12DaysofGiving, a 12-day bonanza of giving, sharing, and promoting social good from 12/13 to 12/24. Each day, amazing people and charities will be highlighted, with the goal to raise over $12,000 for the causes, as well to enlist the help of passionate social media users globally to help spread awareness. The goal is not only to show support for these causes, but also to illustrate the power of social media for social good and the massive impact thousands of small, meaningful actions can help when used collectively.
