Hi there my name is Kristin Caddell and I am an ODU student with plans to graduate in May 2014 with a BS in Interdisciplinary Studies. My curation topic is Using Social Media for Social Change:.
The use of social media to promote, advocate and create funding for Non-Profit causes in relation to Social issues affecting our society. I work with a non-profit and Philanthropy is a passion of mine. I plan to use sources like NTEN, Philanthropy, Markets for Good, Philanthrogeek, Beth Kater and others to create a nice collection for social good. This topic is important in general because being charitable and doing good is necessary to promote and create a better future. It is necessary that Non-profits that are working towards social good need to be introduced to the ways social media can help their cause. I only hope that I can contribute to making this dream of a better future a reality.
