Use Your Social Influence to Help End Childhood Hunger in America. 2011 Dine Out for No Kid Hungry Restaurant Rally.

by sexythinker

1 in 4 children in U.S. will face hunger this year. Without the security of knowing where their next meal will come from, these children lack the energy to learn, grow and thrive. Share Our Strength is an organization committed to ending childhood hunger in America. The money raised through Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry will connect kids with nutritious food where they live, learn and play

In 2010, over 4,000 restaurants joined Share Our Strength’s sponsors and partners to raise more than $1.5 million for the Dine Out For No Kid Hungry!

Last year, many of us joined together to support Share Our Strength’s Dine Out for No Kid Hungry. Over 1,000 people spread the word online posting over 10,000 tweets about the campaign in just one week. Those 1,000 contributors helped Share Our Strength and the restaurant industry increase donations by 108% over the last year.

This year, the goal is 3 million dollars and to start we need to rally over 5,000 restaurant locations to participate in the program. Now it’s time to rally restaurants around the cause. This Wednesday, May 4th Share Our Strength is hosting a twEAT OUT for the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry all day long! Let’s focus our network’s enthusiasm on this one day to really grab the attention of restaurants.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. If you have a blog repost this blog on your network asking people to join this Wednesday’s twEAT OUT linking to the TwEAT OUT page:
  2. Post a request to join us Wednesday and the link to the TwEAT OUT page on your Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin networks
  3. JOIN us THIS Wednesday for the TwEAT OUT (Tweet-a-thon)

Let’s rally our networks to help end childhood hunger in America!

“The Social Ripple: Impacting Business and Life.” Book I’ll be co-writing with @paulbarron. #SocialRipple

by sexythinker

“The era of how social business, social relationships, social engagement and social commerce has begun. We have spent the past four years learning and exploring the art and science of engagement. Our next step as brand leaders will be to understand the Ripple Effects our social actions have on our business, employees and our customers.”

– Paul Barron, Digital Brand Camp

This year I’ll be co-writing a book with Paul  called “The Social Ripple.”  In the book we will share some interesting concepts on how you can actually guide your social ripple to help your business or your own life succeed.

Not only am I’m thrilled to work on such a meaningful project with one of my biggest role models and business crushes, I’m excited to share with you some profound stories and examples where this kind of social influence has transformed businesses and changed lives, including my own.
