I came across this on twitter today and thought how great it was to see social networking taking a turn towards charity programs. Aside from our own amazing blogging charity at BloggersGive.com (raised $5K in products so far this year!), there are so many others reaching out to do the same thing.
I personally know RomeoTheCat whom is raising 5cents for every follower on twitter and is consistently offered matching donations. All money raised goes to help homeless animals.
And today I found out about a new program where $3 is donated for every new follower up to $150K to help out public education. That’s all you do…….you hit follow and bam, $3 donated. AMAZING!
To encourage you to follow and have your $3 donated by them, we will also up the pot by allowing you 5 extra entries on all of our contests, the entire month long (you need to add your own, call it “tweet entries” on as many contests you like) . I am a big advocate of charity and when ways to contribute are right in front of us, I want to do all I can to help encourage it as well!
Taking an hour to mentor a child, sending a single e-mail, or following someone on Twitter — remember that the small things are often what have the biggest impact, as we actually do them.
Interested in doing more? Please consider donating a few dollars directly to U.S. classrooms near you through DonorsChoose.org.
