At any number of companies, people are being asked to do their part. To give something back to their community.
The group is asking for your hard earned capital, of course, through PayPal, but social capital is a big part of the campaign, too, by completing tweets with #tweetsgiving and provide a link back to http://tweetsgiving.org.
In its second year, the group has the stated purpose to encourage people to show gratitude for what they have. In addition to the online campaign, Epic Change is encouraging people to attend a Tweetsgiving party.
Donations will help build an additional classroom, orphanage/boarding facility, cafeteria and library at Epic Change’s partner school in Tanzania. In 2010, Epic Change will continue to look for social entrepreneurs like Mama Lucy, an Epic Fellow.
The United Way may be one way to give to your community through your business but Twitter and the social web open a whole new world for ways to give.
So, Happy Tweetsgving everyone. We are grateful for your continued interest in the posts we write here at ReadWrite Enterprise.
