Owning a blog is a great feeling when you can use the blog to help the underprivileged. The web has been used very effectively as a medium to connect charities and missionary with the rest of the world. Social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have only helped such causes to go viral and bridge the gap very effectively and smoothly.
I am happy that I have been able use the blog and my communities on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to support a few charity organizations.
I would really appreciate if you can help me and spare a minute to caste your vote on Facebook
The Chase Bank in association with Facebook is holding a contest for charities on Facebook. They will be giving away US$1 million to the charity which secures the most number of votes from Facebookers.
Give Foundation – a charity organization in India that I support, is one of these charities. If they win, they plan to use this prize money to educate 40,000 underprivileged children in India through their partner NGOs.
All partner NGOs have undergone due diligence, and are highly transparent and credible organizations. They are located across India and provide access to education to underprivileged children, including the girl child, tribal children and children from remote rural areas.
