5 Ways To Utilize Twitter!!

5 Ways to Use Twitter to Market Your Charitable Cause for Free

Twitter is more than just a free app that lets you stay in touch with celebrities and friends. It can be a powerful tool to spread the message regarding virtually any charitable cause. As millions of users browse through messages on a daily basis, you can potentially connect to a large number of these people without spending a single dime. You also don't need a vast collection of followers in order to have your messages noticed.

Hashtags

Hashtags are how messages become grouped within a conversation in Twitter. You can create your own or use one that is already populated. Since you only have 140 characters in twitter to share your message, it's best if you try to use the hashtag within the material itself and not afterwards. For example, "I like to drink #Coffee in the morning." would be a better use of available space than "I like to drink coffee in the morning. #coffee"

Mentions

Don't be afraid to mention a popular brand, product or company by its Twitter handle. If your comment is favorable, the operator of that account could retweet or favorite your comment which will allow others to see the material. This could quickly spread your message across the followers of that account. For instance, you can use "@CocaColaCo" within your message and possibly have your content shared among the 300,000+ followers of The Coca-Cola Company. This has great potential for starting a conversation and allowing your charity to become viral on Twitter.

Links to Your Blog

If you operate a blog for your charity, adding the link could help increase its exposure. Because Twitter is restrictive on the number of characters you can use in a single message, there are many online tools that can help you condense the link to make it fit within your message. Buffer, Ow.ly, WordPress and more can shrink those links for free. It can help create awareness of your cause while informing others of current events.

Join Conversations

An effective way to get your charity noticed is by joining other conversations. The more active your account becomes, the more interest it will generate. However, you don't want to make it look like you're advertising your charity. A casual mention of it may suffice as long as its within the topic. For instance, you don't want to advertise your charity for breast cancer awareness within the hashtag "#kidztoys" unless you're selling toys for the benefit of cancer facilities.

Don't Buy Followers

Some companies on the Internet guarantee a certain number of followers for a specific price. This is a terrible practice as not all of the followers are real people. It doesn't matter how many users follow as long as you maintain your account on a daily basis. It'll be the hashtags and mentions that will be the most productive for your charity.

Social media can put you in touch with people you never thought possible. Nearly anyone is capable of seeing your message in Twitter, and using the site wisely can help you connect with potentially thousands of individuals. People like Marc Shmuger use the service to share information with others in order to inspire and draw attention to various causes. Utilize the free tools and social sites available to you and the charity may get a considerable amount of attention regardless of its size.

Maya is a little bee with a big heart. She dreams of an exciting life of freedom, fun and adventure – the world is simply far too interesting to stay inside a hive!

With her best friend Willy, Maya buzzes out into the meadow on an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery.

While most bees believe that other insects should be feared, Maya can’t help but make friends with Flip the charismatic and eccentric grasshopper, Kurt the dung beetle and even Sting, a young hornet. But when the Queen’s royal jelly is stolen, it will take Maya and all of her bug buddies to figure out who did it and how to save the day!

"Curious George Swings Into Spring" Special Airs March 30th!! #PBSKids



Curious George kicks off the start of spring with the one-hour “Curious George Swings into Spring” special, followed by two new episode premieres later in the week.

In these new adventures, George does everything from mending a broken costume for Chinese New Year to exploring the great Amazon!

Building on the series’ curricular focus, the episodes integrate science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts into George’s discoveries in intuitive and fun ways that kids will enjoy. To extend the fun, parents can access a variety of engaging and educational resources, including outdoors-themed games like “
ZOOmazing,” and “Animal Scrapbook” and a variety of special activities, printables, and videos on pbskids.org/curiousgeorge.

Episode Airdates and Descriptions (check local listings for air times and more details)

CURIOUS GEORGE Swings Into Spring – Airs March 30 and April 3, 2015
In CURIOUS GEORGE Swings Into Spring, George has a case of spring fever and wants nothing more than to play outside with his best dog pal, Hundley. However, serious “lobby” dogs like Hundley have no time for spring. When misfortune strikes and their building is flooded, Hundley accepts George’s invitation to visit the country. George tries to share the joy of spring with him, but then Hundley gets lost! Will George be able to rescue Hundley -- and will they finally get to enjoy spring together?
 
George’s Curious Dragon Dance / Bowling for Bobolinks” – Premieres March 31, 2015
George’s Curious Dragon Dance: George and Marco are excited to help their new friend Lily practice the dragon dance for the Chinese New Year parade!  But when they accidentally ruin the nose on the dragon costume, it’s a race against the clock to fix it in time. Can this monkey mend a dragon or will this New Year be out of luck?


Bowling for Bobolinks: Monkeys LOVE bowling, especially when high scores raise money for their favorite songbird – the bobolink!  But when George finds himself dodging runaway balls and flying shoes, he worries the charity event will be a bust.  Could mixed-up bowling shoes be causing the chaos?

“Curious George’s Amazon Adventure / Monkey Senses” – Premieres April 1, 2015
Curious George’s Amazon Adventure: To raise awareness for the rainforest, Professor Wiseman enlists George and the Man with the Yellow Hat to help make a movie about the different plants, animals, and insects that call it home.  But when a frisky tamarin monkey runs off with their camera, the chase is on!  Will George’s jungle instincts lead him to the camera or is the movie over before the big premiere?


Monkey Senses: When George, Gnocchi, Hundley and Steve get stuck in the back of a delivery truck and end up lost, what's the one thing they have in common?  Their senses!  George’s eyes, Gnocchi’s nose, and Hundley’s ears provide the memory clues they need to figure out the way back.  And with the help of Steve's brain, home is just hop, skip and boat ride away!

The Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest presented by Cheap Chic Weddings and Charmin begins March 12, 2015 for the eleventh year in a row.

For the first time ever, Kleinfeld Bridal will create a wearable gown inspired by the Grand Prize Winner’s Entry! Contestants have until May 12, 2015 to submit their paper masterpieces. Top ten entries will be chosen then online voting will be open to the public.

The top ten dresses and their designers will be flown to New York City to participate in a live fashion show finale event at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City on June 17, 2015 where the top three winners will be chosen.

At the Finale Event, the dress entries will be judged by members of Cheap Chic Weddings, Charmin, Co-Owner of Kleinfeld, Mara Urshel and Celebrity Judge Mikie Russo, event planner and host of “Mikie Saves the Date” on FYI Network.

“The contest has grown immensely over the last ten years and we are always in awe of the beautiful gowns created by the contestants.” says Susan Bain, Co-Founder of Cheap Chic Weddings. “We specialize in making weddings chic on a budget but these designs often surpass even our imaginations.” added Laura Gawne, Co-Founder of Cheap Chic Weddings.
The Grand Prize winner will see their design created into a beautiful gown and receive $10,000, the second place winner will receive $5000 and the third place winner will receive $2500.

Here’s How to Enter:

Third: Make the dress and headpiece on your model or mannequin and take some clear, unaltered digital photos (front, back and side). The dress must be able to be worn by a human!
