So the past month has been wonderful. Although sans the traditional FT job, I’ve been incredibly busy– specifically by volunteering for a developing charity organization called Social Media for Social Change (aka SM4SC).
My dear friend Gradon Tripp started SM4SC earlier this summer simply because he wanted to raise money for a charity he holds quite close to him: Jane Doe Inc. Well! This project has snowballed into a glacier, and we are on our way to become a soon-to-be amazing nonprofit that will use social media to help charities all over the place.
So, I’ve been serving as SM4SC’s PR dudette for a while now, also working with fabulous PR/Social Media Agency sponsor SocialRadi.us. I launched our first news release last week and I’ve been chatting with reporters/bloggers to continue getting the word out.
Well. This has been awesome, and I’m in love with the traction we’re getting. However, I started thinking…how ELSE can I help? What can crazy Repcor do to get more people to donate to SM4SC and Jane Doe Inc.’s cause?
I pledge to write a song about you, your company, your family, your cause, your dog, WHATEVER– to whoever pledges the highest donation to SM4SC. Note: this is a DONATION, not a sponsorship. This person’s/company’s donation will go directly to Jane Doe Inc. and will be tax deductible (minus tickets in your donor package, if you’re THAT much of a rockstar.)
Bidding will close on Friday, October 3rd at 5:00pm EST. I’ll then take the weekend to get the creative juices flowing, write up an awesome song about how charitable you are (throw in some of your corporate messaging, if that’s what gets your jollies) and the good people at SM4SC will throw it up on the website on Monday 10/6 (along with my blog, other people’s blogs, surely tweeted everywhere, dugg, you know the drill!)
