Today is December 1st – you know what that means? Well a few things. First of all, “Moustache Season” is officially over. This year’s Movember was wildly successful, raising well over $36 million in Canada alone. And now, most of those Mo Bro’s you’ve seen on the streets over the past month growing hair on their upper lip will probably shave. However, as Movember comes to a close, the holiday season is approaching. “The most wonderful time of the year” where people get together with their family, friends, food and fesitivities. No matter how you celebrate this holiday season, December and generosity have gone hand in hand for centuries.
That’s why here at WebFuel, December is Giving Back Month.
“Giving Back” Month is all about using Social Media for Social Good. We believe that Social Media is an incredible tool that can be used for much more than sharing photos of last weekend’s party on Facebook or Tweeting about your lunch. It can be used to share a story. To increase awareness. To influence the community around you. To raise money. Its reach, power, and versatility are incredible, and when used the right way, can change the world.
So this December, we are going to use our Social Media for Social Good. What does this mean? We will be using our Social Media networks and influence to promote local and national charities. Are you involved with a charity that could use a boost this holiday season? Contact us to learn more about how we can help you recruit volunteers, promote an event, raise money or anything to support you this month.
Furthermore, we have invited a group of guest bloggers from local and national charities to tell us how they have used their Social Media for Social Good! Stay tuned, they will be posted throughout the month.
