Yesterday, thanks to Chris Brogan, I had a chance to be part of something great.
Beth Kanter raised over $1000 in less than 24 hours to send a Cambodian girl to college by using her Facebook and Twitter networks (plus a ChipIn widget on her blog) to meet her goal.
I received a Tweet(s) from Chris Brogan, who had also blogged and and cheerleader-ed the effort.
The goal was reached in hours and it was amazing to be a part of something so big – and this was also a case study of Social Media happening in real time.
Thank you Beth for the opportunity and I can’t wait to meet you in person at Podcamp Boston next weekend.
