This year I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak on the "Social Media For Social Good" panel at Share Our Strength's Conference of Leaders in Washington D.C. To say the event left me inspired and humbled would be an understatement. I encourage everyone to watch the speech Billy Shore, founder of Share Our Strength, made during the awards ceremony. It encompasses everything that Share Our Strength is and works to achieve in this country everyday. Watch Billy Shores Speech HERE, get inspired then share with everyone you know and love!
During the social media session of the 2 day conference, our panel of 5 spoke to the attendees of this phenomenal event about the impact social media has had on Share Our Strength, new social media platforms we have discovered and utilized and our plans for the 2011 season. As a representative for Great American Bake Sale I focused on The Bake Sale Neighborhood, the new social media Ning network introduced to GABS by Share Our Strength just this year, as well as MerchantCircle, the primary site for all my marketing and promoting for my events.
The session was a success and I hope the attendees left with a better understanding of what possibilities are out there for participants and organizers for all of the SOS campaigns.
