As you might already know, I’m involved with a great organization called Social Media for Social Change that takes advantage of the connections we make online in order to produce face-to-face fundraising events around the country.
The first Social Media for Social Change fundraising event in New York City will be held on the evening of Friday, April 3, at the Roger Smith Hotel to benefit City Harvest, an amazing organization with a rich history in NYC. City Harvest rescues food that would otherwise go to waste and in turn delivers it to hungry New Yorkers. At this time where many of us are struggling to make ends meet, it’s important to recognize those who are worse off than us and reach out a hand.
I would be an absolute pleasure to see many of you there. I have donated 3 usability evaluations that will be available for bid. Tickets to the event are $45 each, or $35 each for groups of 2 or more, and 100% of the proceeds from the ticket sales and the event go to benefit City Harvest. You can easily buy tickets online.
As a part of #tenbuckthursday, we are encouraging people who can’t make the event to give even a small amount of money to City Harvest directly. It costs them just 28 cents to rescue a pound of food, so even $1 helps. Please give what you can to the cause –- $1, $5, or even $10. You can do it online at Firstgiving.com<http://firstgiving.com/sm4scnyc> and your donation is tax deductible. Please share this message and tag any tweets, Tumblelogs or blog posts with #tenbuckthursday to help spread the message.
Thank you for your support and generosity. It is deeply appreciated.
