Recently, while perusing our Causes page on Facebook (Support Individuals with Developmental Disabilities), we were reminded that a number of the members of our Cause have been inactive for quite some time.
The difficulty with Causes, in many cases, is that people often invite friends to sign up for a cause (e.g. “Help Wildlife Impacted by the BP Oil Spill”), and then those friends don’t participate any further in it. This is especially true of causes that aren’t updated frequently.
Granted, we are not in “competition” with a cause dedicated to cleaning up the oil spill; however, I do think that those of us in Community Relations (and that certainly includes more than just me) can be more active with this area.
We are not necessarily looking to receive donations through Causes, as that has never been a major source of money for us. Rather, we are simply trying to spread our message to more people in Georgia, and as always, network with others who believe in similar values.
While I am one of the administrators of the Cause page, only its creator has the ability to add and/or remove other administrators. I’m currently trying to negotiate a way to “take the reigns,” so to speak, of the page, so that we can more actively use it for the above purposes.
And as I’ve said in a few previous blog entries, we are looking into getting ourselves out on the Web elsewhere. It will just take some extra time and effort.
