This is a guest post my Mike Query of BACC.
People enjoy doing good.
One of the reasons I believe the “Golden Rule” has survived the test of time is it’s hard not to feel like you’ve left a better legacy after doing something that betters the life of another. McCartney and company echoed this in their last recording when they sang “…and in the end, the love you make is equal to the love you take.”
So if it feels so great to give, why don’t we see more talk of it in the blogosphere? And even better still, is there anyone searching for these stories, looking to be inspired to do good?
I manage the web initiatives for several Bay Area community service programs, which means I’m responsible for generating content and building relationships with those around Bay Area who are interested in volunteering. Social media has provided me with plenty of tools to drum up support for all sorts of causes, and without it we would not be as strong as we are today.
Here are three ways you can use social media to engage volunteers or get involved yourself.
