Who here is on Facebook? Show of hands, please.
OK, I realize that’s virtually impossible online, but it seems that many more people are on Facebook now than even in the past few years, which is great!
On Monday, Jan. 4, Kevin Weiner, one of GCSS’ tech experts from the IT department, posted a link to our Facebook Causes page, “Support Individuals with Developmental Disabilities,” on the main GCSS website.
Though I explained Causes in the GCSS Blogspot site, I don’t think many people saw it. Here it is, in a nutshell: Causes, in and of itself, is a nonprofit organization, created to help other nonprofits raise money and awareness online. They came up with a Facebook Application in order to accomplish their mission.
If this sounds interesting, read on. Let’s say you’re already on Facebook; all you have to do is sign in, and do a search for “Causes.” The application should come up among the list of results.
Under the umbrella of Causes are a multitude of nonprofit organizations, from the practically unknown to the world-famous. GCSS’ Cause page is known as Support Individuals with Developmental Disabilities.
You can also access this page from GCSS’ main site, at GCSS: How You Can Help.
It’s understandable if not everyone is able to donate money, but even just spreading the message or signing up for the newsletter are helpful in immeasurable ways.
So thank you, all, for being a part of the awareness-raising campaign.
