Thanksgiving is upon us. I have always loved the fact that we have a time set aside to sit and remember our blessings. Now those of you that know me, know that I am a big advocate of social media for social good. One of the beauties of social media is that we can generate even more support for the people that need it most. And that is the reason for today’s post.
One of my favorite social media for social good organizations, 12for12K (you may have noticed their widget in the sidebar of my blog) has partnered with EpicChange to create TweetsGiving. The idea is to create an online groundswell of gratitude that will blanket the web with images, videos, songs and stories of everything that we’re grateful for. It’s also an opportunity to raise some funds for charity. The power of the idea is pretty tremendous. Think about all the positive energy that can be created through such an endeavor. You can learn more about this and get involved here: http://tweetsgiving.org
So here’s what I am thankful for:
- An incredible family that provides the support I need to serve you here, and through my consulting and speaking
- The opportunity to share with you on a topic I’m passionate about…social media as it specifically applies to the direct selling industry
- All of the amazing people I’ve met as a direct result of this blog and my social media efforts
- All of the amazing people in this industry who have supported me in spreading the word about social media, and how important it is for direct sellers
- Every single one of you who takes the time to comment on and share my posts as well as my training courses with your networks. I am humbled and grateful that you take the time to share. It means so much to me.
- The incredible people I’ve met through social media. There are some absolutely incredible people on social networks that I learn a great deal from. I am richer for the experience of having met them.
I could probably sit here and write about 100 more for you to read. But what I really want you to do is go and write your own expression of gratitude, and then give in honor of that for which you’re most thankful. Put it on your blog, or on Twitter, or on Facebook…you get the idea. Let’s get this gratitude going, and spread the word about TweetsGiving!
This post was created as part of a global groundswell of gratitude called TweetsGiving. The celebration, created by US nonprofit Epic Change, is an experiment in social innovation that seeks to change the world through the power of gratitude. I hope you’ll visit the TweetsGiving site to learn more, and to bring your grateful heart to the party by sharing your gratitude, and giving in honor of that for which you’re most thankful.
