Social media is a great way to “Do Good” in the world, and a great teaching tool for our kids. What positive messages can we put out there in the Twittersphere as opposed to rants and anonymous potshots? If we can teach people to look for those opportunities to do good, we can start to affect change in the world.
Need an example? The website Do Something is dedicated to helping young people take action.
“We believe teenagers have the power to make a difference. We leverage communications technologies to enable teens to convert their ideas and energy into positive action. We inspire, empower and celebrate a generation of doers: teenagers who recognize the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action.”
