GiveIndia – The Power To Change Lives

with 2 comments

Are you the one who goes gaga over the so-called wonders of the so-called Social Media?
Is media by definition not social, per se?
I believe what the SME’s(Nope! Not Small and Medium Enterprises), the Social Media Experts mean by social is the interactiveness that has been brought in by numerous web 2.0 technologies. But this interaction and coming together mostly happens in the virtual world. How can one be social sitting before a laptop or by being buried in the phone?

As you might have guessed, I take anything Social Media with a pinch of salt. In fact I enjoy taking jabs at SM every now and then.

Time to take a U-turn!

I do like Social Media. Especially when I see a tangible social element, like the one below.

GiveIndia, a trusted and credible NGO in India is trying to win a $1 million grant through a contest on Facebook. If they win, they plan to use the money to educate 40,000 children for a year.
You can see more details here.

Voting ends on January 22, so don’t delay!
And, after you vote be sure to tell ALL your friends about it too!

PS: If you happen to be a Social Media Expert, please don’t get miffed. Just go and vote 🙂
