An open letter to Everyone or #beatcancer

Dear Everyone,

I love social media. I love twitter, facebook, blogs... I love it all. It can be used to learn things, interact with people who love the same things as you and fight causes. I'm overwhelmed by the # of people who #rabbleforacause everyday. I think it's amazing that this tool brings people together from all over and can help us to do good- not just tell jokes and make fun or each other.

I organize my twitter stream with a client called TweetDeck. One of my favorite features is the "TwitScoop" column. I often check it out to see what's going on. It's a fast way to see what the hottest topics hare.

Well, I just had to investigate further when I noticed that the words "cancer" and "hashtag" were trending. It didn't take long to come across this: http://mashable.com/2009/10/16/social-media-campaign-to-beat-cancer-eyes-record-in-guinness-book/ For those of you who didn't read it, long story short- eBay/PayPal and MillerCoors will be donating 1 cent to cancer research for every tweet, blog post and facebook post with the #beatcancer hashtag.

Oh, how I love I good cause. ;) I followed the instructions immediately, tweeting the following things right away:
And now, this blog post. Check out their website: http://beatcancereverywhere.com/ and then get going!

Love, Megan
