Too much good stuff to post this month. I’m somehow still blown away by the ever-changing nature of online communications and community-building initiatives with regard to the potential outcome of significant social impact. It’s nothing new, but time and time again I find myself in awe of the way social networking and the Web in general have helped changed the world.
Organ Donor Bloggers Abound
Outside of this blog, we’re constantly working to spread the word about organ & tissue donation and the importance of registering through MySpace, Facebook and YouTube. Nonetheless, it isn’t without the help of people like Steve, Sarah, Roger, Moreena, Bob and a whole host of others including this site that we wouldn’t have progressed as far as we have in the past 18-months with our campaign efforts.
Heck, we’ve even managed to slip onto the TIME Magzine-endorsed Nudges blogroll and caught the eye of Chicagoist today.
This isn’t us tooting our horn, this is us saying THANK YOU. Thank you for spreading the word, for calling attention to the issue, for giving a voice and hope to the more than 4,700 Illinois residents and 98,000 people nationwide whose lives depend on action being taken.
We’ve seen a strong spike in registrations this month as we work toward our 3.5 million goal. More than just registrations, these are selfless individuals agreeing to help others and save lives.
Let’s keep it going…
