Social Media for Social Change
As of this post, there's only 11 tickets for SM4SC (all those tweeting about it, please use #sm4sc). If you can't make it tonight, follow all the fun at http://twitter.com/sm4scnyc or follow my tweets about the event tonight at @helenstravels.
Tonight, people are flocking over to the Roger Smith Hotel, dubbed the social media hotel (and a fabulous space!), to support the latest social media for social change fundraiser. The fundraiser will combine live entertainment, invaluable networking, and fundraising into a single night of fun to benefit City Harvest, the world’s first — and New York’s only — food rescue program. All of the proceeds of the event go to charity. The remaining tickets are on sale now at sm4scnyc.eventbrite.com.
City Harvest, a non-profit organization founded in 1982, is the world’s first and New York City’s only food rescue program.
Now serving New York City for over 25 years, City Harvest is the world’s first food rescue organization, dedicated to feeding the city’s hungry men, women and children. This year, City Harvest will collect 23 million pounds of excess food from all segments of the food industry, including restaurants, grocers, corporate cafeterias, manufacturers and farms. This food is then delivered free of charge to more than 600 community food programs throughout New York City using a fleet of trucks and bikes as well as volunteers on foot. Each week, City Harvest helps over 260,000 hungry New Yorkers find their next meal.
A special thanks to Matthew Knell, co-organizer of Social Media for Social Change, for the sm4sc invite and verbage :).
Enjoy the weekend!
