Let’s connect!

Connecting good people with other good people since 1980

Are you having a “BAD” day? Me too. Awesome! October 15, 2008

Welcome to a BAD day–Blog Action Day, that is. 

I normally blog about connecting opportunities and various social networking tips and tools. As I reflected on what I wanted to blog about for Blog Action Day 2008 I knew I wanted it to be meaningful and most importantly, connection-oriented. While Blog Action Day is one day of the year, it doesn’t mean that the good-deed doing it encourages should last the same amount of time. My eyes have been opened to the poverty crisis – and not just the poverty in the United States, but all over the world.

We are each united by a common thread–we are human. Staying true to our social media roots, and to the connectedness I constantly preach, you can help end poverty and MAKE A DIFFERENCE by becoming a VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER! That’s right. Make a difference from your computer.

Did you know? More than 30 million children in the world are not immunized against treatable or preventable diseases? Or that 134 millions children between the ages of 7 to 18 have never been to school?

The CARE Children and Poverty Campaign tackles underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient. Recognizing that women and children suffer disproportionately from poverty, CARE places special emphasis on working with women to create permanent social change. Women are at the heart of CARE’s community-based efforts to improve basic education, prevent the spread of HIV, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and protect natural resources. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives.

BE A VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER! As a virtual volunteer with CARE Corps Online, you can create your own, personal space on the Web to let others know about CARE’s lifesaving work. From your site, you can generate interest and support for CARE’s mission and encourage friends, family — virtually everyone you know — to help you help CARE. Click here to find out more about CARE Corps Online.

How else can you help? You DO NOT need to contribute money to make a difference (although it never hurts). There are other ways to help CARE, like donating your cell phone. OR tell you legislator that you want him or her to take action.

Watch CARE’s video on the power of women and gender equality, then join thousands of others in the call to end extreme poverty by 2015.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, my goal is to keep all of my postings “short and sweet.” Your time is valuable, my time is valuable…so let’s make the most of it. Agreed? Good.

I had my first official 1:1 tweet up this morning with @deremiah_CPE and it was awesome. Ideas were flowing, creativity busting at the seams…all at the local IHOP. We connected per chance via Twitter, discovered we had a lot in common and live only 15 minutes from one another. 

During our inspirational breakfast we discovered ways to connect the other with a wider circle of influence. So, in my mission to connect good people with other good people, check out Deremiah.

Now that I’ve connected with Deremiah, I want to meet you, too.

Hit me up via any social network, next time you’re in the Chicago area…or if you never come to Chicago, contact me via Skype (prsarahelizabeth). If you are an engaging conversationalist, care about leaving the world a better place AND have good stuff to share, then I’ll blog about it for all my network to enjoy.

Even better, contact me now

 

Welcome. September 15, 2008

 I’ll keep this short and sweet…  It is my goal/mission/passion/hedgehog concept to socially connect good people with other good people – FAST! Seriously. I want to be the Jimmy John’s of connectedness (i.e. social networking). You know, connecting people so fast you’ll freak? I’m talking about quality connectedness, not just connecting for the sake of connecting. So, reach out to me on Twitter, Facebook, Squidoo, LinkedIn, Plurk, Youare, FriendFeed, Friendster. Tell me know what you do well, what someone else does well and/or what you are looking for/need.  I’ll do my best to connect you with great people as quickly as possible.

You’ll notice on a few of the social network sites I might be listed as PRsarahevans as opposed to PRsarahelizabeth.  It’s due to character constraints. It’s still me…so connect away.
