    Thursday, December 24th, 2009

    Danny Brown (@DannyBrown) wrote a post today highlighting 10 amazing people to get to know in 2010. Many of them were folks he’s partnered with to give back to the community throughout 2009 as part of #12for12k. At the end of the post, Danny asks who else would be on your amazing list? Well, for [...]

    Skip something, feed a child

    Saturday, December 12th, 2009

    Is there something you could skip for a day? You know, that Starbucks gingerbread latte, going out to eat for lunch, that new shirt, stocking stuffers, going to the movies? Everybody has something. And if you skip it for just one day, you could make sure a child in need has food to eat and [...]

    “Don’t give up, don’t ever give up”

    Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

    I’m watching the Jimmy V Classic on ESPN, but I don’t really care about the game. I’m hoping to catch the speech…this speech… …the most inspiring speech I’ve ever heard in my life. You may or may not know about Jim Valvano. As a kid I knew him because I adopted the North Carolina Tar [...]

    GUEST POST BY LINDSAY M. ALLEN Multiple Sclerosis is everywhere; in fact, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society estimates that more than 2.5 million people worldwide have MS, “a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.” Learn more about MS [...]

    Show your support in seconds thanks to Twibbon

    Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

    I wanted to write about #Red today. Just seemed appropriate, being World Aids Day. I wanted to share some of the creative promotions people and brands created to support the cause and raise awareness — @Starbucks donated 5 cents for every beverage sold today worldwide. And Twitter turned tweets tagged with #red, well…#red, to increase [...]

    Letters to Santa making wishes come true this Christmas

    (Photo courtesy of Macys.com) It’s estimated that children around the world send hundreds of thousands of letters to Santa each year in the months leading up to Christmas. And this year, Macy’s and Make-A-Wish Foundation are giving kids and adults a little extra incentive to correspond with Jolly Ole St. Nick. This year, each Macy’s [...]

    Cancer DOESN’T rock! Follow @drewfromtv and help the Drews fight cancer

    Saturday, November 28th, 2009

    Ok, everyone. I was reminded of a cause today while searching online that we can all participate in and it couldn’t be any easier. It will literally take you less than 30 seconds, you don’t have to donate any of your own money and if we get enough people to help, it could mean big [...]

    I’m thankful for meeting the #Twitterkids of Tanzania #tweetsgiving

    Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

     (Photo courtesy of the Tweetsgiving.epicchange.org) Do you remember life without the Internet? Think about it for a second. How has your life changed because of the Web? What would your life be like without it? Would you know have as much as you do today? How about Twitter? Maybe it’s a little easier to remember [...]

    A mini-Tweetsgiving volunteer opportunity

    Monday, November 23rd, 2009

    It’s turkey week and you know what that means. Yes, a couple of days off of work, some really bad Detroit Lions football and the Thanksgiving Day Parade. But it also means a big feast…with turkey. At least that’s what it should mean for everyone. And we can help make it a reality for hundreds [...]

    Minnesota nonprofit is ACES at helping kids in the community

    Saturday, November 21st, 2009

    (Photo courtesy of ACES Flickr site) GUEST POST: ACES VIDEO COURTESY OF ARIK HANSON As a lifetime Kansas City Royals fan, I’ve always been jealous of Minnesota. After all, the Twins contend every year with about the same size payroll we have, they play the game the right way and they have a bunch of [...]
