Nowadays, social media is everything. It is how someone expresses themselves, promotes businesses, and even becomes famous through many social media outlets. But why does being a social media superstar matter to charities? I'll tell you.
The people who have a strong social media presence AND are highly involved in charities can have a great impact and use their fame for higher purposes. Social media is seen as the bestsellers mode of communication and to have a social media superstar publicly supporting your charity can bring many rewards.
People are more likely to follow the same charity that their social media superstar follows. Think about it...when Kim Kardashian wears a certain outfit or promotes a particular brand, some of her followers immediately follow that brand or purchase outfits similar to hers.
A better example is Matt Damon partnering with Stella Artois and Water.org to help end the global water crisis (http://BuyALadyADrink.com) To check out the video: youtu.be/AEtJNMGa8fE
Tyler's Hope has a distinct motto: Moving The Needle. It means we will are making a difference. As most know, Tyler's Hope Foundation was established to advance research for a cure, discover effective treatments and to promote awareness and education of DYT1 Dystonia. Everyone should live by the motto of "make a difference."
One way to make a different is by donating time, money, and support for DYT1 Dystonia. The great Winston Churchill, a favorite of mine, has said many great quotes; two that stand out to me are:
Here at Tyler's Hope Foundation, the researchers depend upon donations to further advance their research to find a cure. We will never, never, never give up our hope to finding the cure for Dystonia. There is a cure, and it will be found with your support.
We are back...for Tyler's Hope 6th year at Taste of Gainesville that is! We are proud and excited to be a part of such a great event. This Sunday, prepare yourself for an iron chef challenge, plenty of food and drinks, and Dystonia awareness. While the event is not soley for promoting Dystonia, it is a great event to help spread the word of our non-profit and of many other great organizations and businesses.
Child Advocacy Center, Ronald McDonald House, Pace and Tyler's Hope are the four main charities that are raising awareness at the event. Tickets are $125 a piece but a majority of the proceeds go back into the charities. Click here to participate.
