Hello and welcome to the Charidy blog! This is our first ever blog post, and, as you might expect, we’re all extremely excited to get things rolling on here.
As the marketing dude over here, I believe I should tell you all a little about Charidy’s mission, and, more importantly, how our blog and social media all fit into that vision.
Charidy’s mission really comes down to one important element:
We want giving to matter to people.
That’s really all it comes down to. Charitable giving, with the state our economy is in as well as the unwillingness of some organizations to adapt to the new world of worldwide connectivity, has become a bit of a stale idea. Many people, especially younger people, aren’t as excited about giving charitably as they used to be.
But we here at Charidy don’t think that has anything to do with how good the people in the world are. We really, truly believe that every single person on this planet wants and cares about improving the world around them. It’s just that they aren’t given enough opportunities. Or they feel like their giving won’t count for much. Or they don’t know who to support.
That’s why Charidy exists. We want to eliminate all those problems. We want to create a place where giving matters, where you can change the world just by giving a few bucks, where you can be a part of something bigger than you ever imagined.
And that’s where our blog comes in.
This isn’t going to be your normal company or startup blog, the kind that just yaps at your about the company. We’re not into that.
Here’s what we are into: creating a community of people that care about giving.
And that’s what this blog is going to be about. It’s going to be a place where we will discuss all the amazing opportunities for giving in the world and on Charidy, where we will try to inspire you with the good people are doing, where you will be able to interact with other like-minded givers.
We want you to create a “tribe” in the words of the legendary Seth Godin. A tribe that is all about changing the world, about making it a better place for all, and about being altruistic.
If you think you are one of those people, you belong on this blog. And perhaps you also belong on our Facebook page and our Twitter feed. It’s up to you. Either way, if this is a community you’d like to help us create, we’d love to have you.
Because together, we can really do this. We can really change the world. All we need to do is join the tribe and contribute in any way we can.
See you on the flip side.
Your resident blogger,
