In the spirit of the season, I’ve rounded up some feel good cause campaigns with holiday themes. These campaigns provide an opportunity for social media fans to take a small digital action in support of a worthy cause – often of the participant’s own choosing. I hope they inspire your generosity. Happy Holidays everyone!
Network for Good is pleased to partner with Zuora for a creative corporate giving campaign that is being run completely on Twitter. The idea is simple: by tapping into the virality of Twitter, Zuora hopes to encourage as many people as possible – as quickly as possible – to participate. And, there’s another twist. Zuora is actually providing all of the funds itself. Which will total $10,000: people have the opportunity to give away $10 to a charity of their choosing with the goal of reaching 1000 of these donations.
