Nice cans

I was can #1,248. Let me know what your can number is, for a good cause!

Are you hungry right now? If you're reading this at your computer, I'm willing to wager you've also eaten a few meals today. Here's the thing: Some people haven't. Nor do they have the means to do so. 

Allens Veggies launched an awesome campaign (“I Yam What I Yam, Donate a Can”) to help combat hunger. It will run through Halloween, and the goal is to reach 3,000 cans. Pairing with local food banks (Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma), bolstered by the wonders of social media, one can of Popeye Spinach for every new Allens Veggies Facebook fan.

Since you're at your computer already, why not hop on over to Allen's Facebook and “like” it?

Trashed

Businesses navigate a new landscape in which social media may play a make-or-break role.


News

Dean Anderson
It’s the 21st-century equivalent of picket lines, letter-writing campaigns and a full-page ad in The New York Times. But the power of social media, as wielded by an ordinary citizen with a cell phone, can have a greater coordinated impact than all of them put together.
