  1. Here’s a great example of social media being used for fundraising and giving. This past August a group of people in Pleasanton California banned together and raised $463,000 to save school programs from a budget cut. Their use of a blog and Facebook was invaluable in their fundraising. I was emailed the following after sharing their story on LinkedIn,

    “Pleasonton Schools Educational Enrichment Foundation was responsible for the music portion and are happy to report that we’ve successfully reinstated the elementary band and strings for fifth grade in all 9 elementary schools in Pleasanton. That was our primary goal. Of the $460,000 raised, PSEE raised about $115K or about ¼. This was predominantly driven by an on-line campaign/plea. Denise Watkins, President PSEE”
