Make an Epic Change for your Mom this Mother’s Day
Posted by Gia Lyons on May 4, 2008
Hoo boy. Twitterland is rockin’ with Stacey Monk’s (@StaceyMonk) guest post on Sam Lawrence’s (@SamLawrence) blog, Go Big Always. Dennis Howlett (@dahowlett) and I don’t know how many others blogged to get the word out as well.
Dennis tweeted me, asking what IBM could do. I’ve been on holiday in New York City these last four days (Mom, I couldn’t find your records on Ellis Island, bummer), but now I’m home, and wondering how on earth to move the dancing elephant to assist Stacy’s Epic Change organization. I know there’s a process somewhere, but I will have to blog internally for help to learn which levers to pull and which buttons to push to get the elephant to dance Stacey’s way.
Stacey is looking for:
- Videos for a movie for group of 170+ Tanzanian children who attend Shepherds Junior school
- Donations to buy/build them a school bus, another classroom, and a playground
- Volunteers for lots of different things
Here’s what I’m going to do personally: give donations in my mother’s and mother-in-law’s names for Mother’s Day. They love this kind of stuff, especially since education was practically a religion in their houses. Don’t have a mom? Donate in honor of your favorite teacher of yore on America’s National Teacher Day, Tuesday, May 6.
It would be great if you could participate, even if you just blog and twitter about this worthy cause. Please pass the word, Web 2.0 style.
