The folks at Epic Change are back at it again! Tweetsgiving is upon us, this year with a virtual gratitude campaign. On the Epic Change “Tweetsgving” site you can see the Epic Changemakers of the year, a place to give to the Epic Change effort. This is social media done right and with a purpose, so participate!
For my part, I gave $50. In the past two years Epic Change has built two classrooms and a library in Arusha, Tanzania, where the twitterkids, led by local changemaker Mama Lucy Kamptoni, learn and grow at one of the best primary schools in their country. Kudos to Stacey Monk and team for their continued perseverance and progress.
I would like to express my gratitude for these four things:
1) The birth of a healthy daughter: The best event of my life. I hope I can rise to the occasion and be the Dad she needs. I am so grateful for Baby Soleil.
2) Sleep: It’s so underrated until you stop getting it. I can’t wait to get more!
3) Freedom of speech: There are too many enforced truths, not enough self thinking. This is a huge issue, online and in the traditional media. Express yourself, and question everything!
4) And water. We take water for granted, and many in the world can’t enjoy it. Deep Horizon, the Danube, Chemical spills, etc. Do something about it today!
What are you grateful for?
