I'm trying to demonstrate the potential of social media fundraising to the non profit I work for in the Boston area, Earthwatch. We've been lucky enough to snag a challenge grant from a renewable energy company, First Wind: if we can get 350 followers to our climate change Twitter account by August 13th, they'll grant a total of $8,000 to the climate change research we do and to fund a tree-planting project in Boston.
So, if you're a Twitter user--or even if you'd be willing to set up a free Twitter account just for this purpose--please take two minutes and go to www.twitter.com/tweettheheat and become a follower--then pass the word through your networks. If we blow that 350 out of the water--the sooner the better--we can go back to the funder, and others, for MUCH more next time.
Earthwatch does some great work and it is so easy to help fund a non-profit. Give five minutes and help raise some money for the environment!
