Day 226: Followed Someone On Twitter

Through this blog I have truly learned how incredible social media is for raising awareness and support for different causes.  I have been able to find so many tremendous organizations and groups on Twitter, Facebook, and Blogger that are doing things that are changing so many people's lives.  It is amazing the power that a few keystrokes and mouse clicks now have.  As part of my acts, I made it a point to put a dime per follower on all three sites towards a great cause, and I am happy to say (and to thank) nearly 7500 people whose dime is going to go to something I will reveal on Day 366.  By looking at the blog of a new Twitter follower, Love Anonymously, I learned of someone using the Twitter handle @St0pChildAbuse.  They have made a similar proclamation to the one I made, and will donate a nickel for every follower to Love Our Children USA, a group that is dedicated to eliminating child abuse here in the United States.  @St0pChildAbuse has tweeted out some alarming facts about abuse, the most scary of which is that every day in the U.S., 5 children die due to child abuse.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I followed @St0pChildAbuse on Twitter so that my nickel will go towards helping to end all types of abuse directed at kids, not just here but hopefully abroad as well.  If you have a Twitter account, please think about doing the same because it is such an easy act to join in on.
