Social Media CAMP SDOkay so why would we be posting about Social Media Camp on Giving Scene. How is this relevant to philanthropy?


It has EVERYTHING to do with the non-profit and social good community. If you are a group who has a mission to make GOOD change, you need to tell someone about it, rally the troops, find some fellow cheerleaders and RAH RAH RAH your way to positive effects! Talk to the world and let them talk back. Nothing gets done in this sector without a little shouting from the rooftops. Since you have heard all of this before, why HASN’T your organization really explored the possibilities of what social media can do to assist your cause?

Well, if you don’t know where to start, Social Media Camp is a great (affordable, did I tell you it is only $15 for a whole day of experts?) way to dip a toe in and get comfortable. Social Media Camp strives to create a comfortable environment for all levels from newbie to master with tons to offer. AND it’s fun! Meet tons of social media enthusiasts and open your organization to the world of collaborative messaging and get an understanding for exactly HOW these virtual connections can result in tangible connections for your group.
