Thanks to social media, supporting charities is now much easier.
In an article written by Sree Sreenivasan for CNET News, it’s described how digital and social media has widened the support system of charities all over the world.
While donating money is still the most effective way to support non-profit organizations, hitting “Like” and “Share” or retweeting posts from charity organizations is a great way to raise awareness about numerous issues.
For celebrities, social media provides a great platform to endorse and promote their respective charities. These individuals have thousands of followers and fans who are inspired by them on a daily basis. A short Tweet or a simple post will go a long way in terms of inspiring their followers and fans to make a difference.
Raising awareness for charities through social media is a big step forward for the digital platform.
