Helping Hands Make The World A Small (and Awesome) Place

This morning I woke up with the intention to write a piece regarding the importance of visually connecting with your audience. We all know it’s important but how do we do it? I was prepared to explain how these two affordable (free) and user-friendly programs will help your organization.

Then google kicked in.  In a truly shocking turn of events: I got sidetracked.  Something beautiful happened.  I found these two videos.

Which lead to me remembering other nonprofits doing similar things, yet different enough they may collaborate. (Lamon Luther and Endless Dreams Foundation) Which of course, leads to Twitter (don’t all roads?) so I can e-troduce them and of course follow these awesome new-to-me nonprofits. Now we know even more people doing more amazing stuff. The world is great, y’all. Full of plain fantastic people making a difference. How can I not love what I do when I get to learn about these incredible organizations and people on a daily basis? Because of all this happiness and sunshine I was completely derailed from my original post, however, in case you’re wondering the short version:

Vsnap.  This isn’t anything new, but the way people are using it is rather awesome.  It’s a quick, easy, efficient and affordable way to personalize your interactions with your community. Some organizations are using it to send personalized thank you videos to donors, sharing exciting news about their community or just giving a snapshot into their daily schedule. It’s really limitless – how do you think you’d use it?

Head on over to facebook and let us know how you’d integrate these programs into your org.  We’d love to hear (and see!) your ideas.
