A “Little Help” Goes a Long Way

The Salvation Army in Canada wrote a blog post suggesting “5 Ways to Support The Salvation Army Through Social Media.”
The entry shares five interesting ways that you can support the work of the Army while you Tweet, udpate your status on Facebook, or even contemplate your next viral video.
In a time where more and more of the world is creating their own, personal online web presence – and checking out that of others – this could be one of the easiest ways to do some good.
You may question how effective a Facebook status update asking others to donate to the Army may be. Or perhaps you’re wondering if mentioning the Army’s increasing need for monetary, time and goods donations in your blog will even make a dent in the needs of the organization.
Worry no more…there’s no such thing as small help:
- A group of Ohio prison inmates regularly sends $5 individually to support the Army.
- A gradeschool classroom in the midwest held a class yard sale to raise money to send to the Army. The children could see a massive fire burning from their classroom and simply wanted to help.
- A California man sends $5 every month and insists that no thank you letter be sent back to him “because it would cost money.”
- And one Missouri man has been sending $5 every month for nearly 20 years.
There’s no such thing as “a little help.” Everything that you do to spread the mission and support the cause of the Army goes a long way to ensuring that the Army can continue Doing The Most Good for years to come.
So go ahead: put your multimedia multitasking to good work. Every “little bit” helps!
