Are You A Social Good Champion?
Social media news site Mashable has singled out three “incredible social good champions” using the web to bring online awareness and positive influence to causes for real change. They highlight Ben Rattray - the founder of Change.org; Scott Harrison - the founder of Charity: Water; and The Free Agent, a term coined by Beth Kanter and Allison Fine in their book, The Networked Nonprofit to describe individuals who use social media tools like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube on their own initiative to build awareness for their favorite social causes.
ACTion Alexandria plans to use the social web to help our community bring positive change to citizens in need. Have you used social media to support your favorite causes? Are you a Free Agent, using your social media skills to help your favorite charities? Let us know how in the comments!
