9 Creative Social Good Campaigns Worth Recognizing, MASHABLE AWARDS

#1 To Mama With Love

To Mama With Love raises funds to help Mama Lucy Kamptoni build a home and boarding facility on the campus of the Tanzanian school she started with her own money. Users can make a donation by creating a “heart space” for a mother they care about. The “heart space” is a collection of photos, videos, and words dedicated to that mother. Other people who care about that mother are invited to donate in her honor. So far the project has raised about $17,000 of its $50,000 goal.

Countdown to the Great Pumpkin

“Are you old enough to remember when we were at the mercy of three major television networks and TV specials were only available once a year? You can bet when a favorite movie or made-for-TV special was scheduled, it went on the calendar and the entire family circled around to watch.

As a product of the ’60s, even today when certain holidays roll around, I’m on high alert for those classic specials: Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and yes, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I wouldn’t dream of owning or watching these on video or DVD. That would completely ruin the magic.

In spite of my insistence on watching certain things the old-fashioned way, inspiring my kids to roll their eyes (and yet more than willingly snuggle up to watch with their geeky mom), I have to appreciate that Snoopy has made his way into the social media scene.

In celebration of 60 years of Peanuts, the Countdown to the Great Pumpkin Social Media Game invites you to commemorate the anniversary through new media.”
