On the second Monday of every month we join with The Cleveland Foundation and Ink+ LLC to host a #CLE4Good tweet chat. These chats are open to everyone everywhere, especially those located throughout Northeast Ohio. Join us to meet new colleagues, share information, get advice, and have fun.
On Monday, November 10, 2014 from 12:00-1:00pm, this month's topic will be on #GivingTuesday which will be taking place Tuesday, December 2. Nonprofits should definitely consider embracing #GivingTuesday to make some fundraising noise this holiday season. If you don’t already know about #GivingTuesday, or if you want to learn more join us for our #CLE4Good tweet chat.
In 2012, the 92Y and the United Nations Foundation founded the #GivingTuesday movement as a way to kick off the giving season for nonprofits and charities. The campaign, which always falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is designed to tap into the spending momentum of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, directing some of that “giving spirit” to support social good. Engage with us during our #CLE4Good chat!
Details for the chat: Make sure you are following: @FCCleveland, @InkPlusLLC, or @CleveFoundation. To participate, you'll need a Twitter account, which you can create for free at Twitter.com. At 12pm we will announce the chat has begun. The moderator will post questions to get the discussion flowing, and get people talking! Make sure to use the hashtag #CLE4Good at the end of each tweet so your opinions are included in the discussion.
One tool I would recommend is TweetChat. TweetChat is a web app that makes Twitter chats feel more like an old-school chat room. The best part about TweetChat is that it will automatically insert the hashtag for the chat at the end of all your tweets so you don't need to remember to add it. To use:
1. Go to http://tweetchat.com
2. Use the sign-in button at the top right corner of the screen to authorize TweetChat to use your twitter account
3. Once you're signed in, enter the chat's hashtag (in this case, #CLE4Good) without the # sign into the search box at the top center and press go.
4. You're ready to go. Write your tweets in the box without worrying about the hashtag and enjoy the chat.
We'll see you then!
