Conan O’Brien: Stop Talking About Red Hats & Do A Monologue About Charitable Giving

Fundraising, Philanthropy

I think Conan should join the #GivingTuesday movement and get more followers. Sign my petition to ask Conan to do a monologue about #GivingTuesday.

On Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Conan poked fun at me because I have more LinkedIn followers than him. He joked that my red hat is the key to my success – it was a funny monologue, but I am offering Conan a better way to increase his LinkedIn followers than photoshopping a red hat on his profile.   I gained influence on LinkedIn by helping nonprofits raise money through events like GivingTuesday, a national day of giving on December 3rd that inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities.

Conan O’Brien could make a huge difference and gain more followers by raising awareness about charity giving by talking about GivingTuesday on his show before Dec. 3rd

This year, over 5,000 partners across the country will participate in the #GivingTuesday event on Dec. 3rd. I’ve been doing nonprofit fundraising online for years, and I know that media exposure makes a huge difference in their success. If Conan did a monologue about charity giving on his show, he could use his significant influence to help thousands of people in need this holiday season AND climb to the top of LinkedIn influencers list.

I think Conan should join the #GivingTuesday movement and get more followers. Sign my petition to ask Conan to do a monologue about GivingTuesday.

Join me  to discuss charitable giving in the Philippines, #GivingTuesday, and how I’m inviting Conan O’Brien to “get out the give‘ for #GivingTuesday on Wednesday 11/13 at 1 p.m. EST.

    Way to go, Beth — made me proud to see Conan mention you, even with a few digs.

    Joe: Thanks so much! It was a surprise and thought I’d leverage it for GivingTuesday! Thanks for spreading the word
