What’s the number 1 way you keep your organization using social media creatively?

We’re never scared to try something that’s never been done before. Being the first to experiment with new social media tools and rollouts shows you’re not scared to take creative risks.

What does “mobile technology for social good” mean to you?

Engaging with the community and potential donors in a direct and intimate way.

If you had to choose only one social media tool to use each day, what would it be and why?

Instagram! It’s my #1 favorite platform professionally and personally. There’s just something about visual storytelling that’s unparalleled.

What does “mobile technology for social good” mean to you?

Mobile technology has a huge impact on social change– Efforts can quickly gain momentum on a small budget and one can find an audience unrestricted by physical location. By utilizing mobile technology, a person or organization can conserve time in order to implement the most change.
