Social Media Impact

Social media has captured the audience of all ages in the 21st century. From keeping up with old friends to following your favorite celebrities or organizations, social media has made a huge impact on society. The nonprofit world has caught onto this sensation and has made its presence known. As of 2012, 98% of nonprofits have a Facebook page and 74% have a twitter. Using these websites spreads news not only with ease but also in a speedy manner. 
Not only is a good source of spreading the word, but also essential in fundraising and receiving donations. The nonprofit world has recently started Giving Tuesday, which follows Black Friday. #GivingTuesday is a new phenomenon where people support organizations that they value.
Spreading the mission and has become prevalent in the nonprofit community and is here to stay. Give an Hour has also made strides in this community by creating a Facebook page, Twitter account (@GiveanHour), Google + page, a Pinterest account and this blog. Take a moment to check out these pages. Also, in order to spread the word about our organization and what we do, please share our posts on whichever social network you use. 
We thank you for your continued support and dedication to the Give an Hour mission.
