Nine ways to support the American Red Cross through social media - Tip 1

Social media provides tools to connect people and initiate a conversation. It has been a great avenue for charities to spread awareness and information. But, the conversation is not one-way. You too, can get involved and make a difference through social media.

We have created a list of nine ways for you to get involved through social media – a way to make a difference. Please feel free to add comments or other ways to get involved using our favorite social tools. To kick off the tips, take this conversation to the streets (and by streets, I mean twitter) using the hashtag #SupportRedCross

So, in an effort to keep you reading (and lessen the length of this blog) we will spread out the tips over the next nine days. Are you ready?
