Online Fundraising for Social Change at Net Tuesday

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Unfortunately I will not be in attendance tonight for the monthly Net Squared / Net Tuesday event so I won’t be able to provide a live blog. However, the subject matter is of such importance that I must share some of the details regardless.

Tonight’s panel is Dawn Bowles of DreamBank, Will Trusty with SavethePlanetOnline, Kevan Gilbert from the Union Gospel Mission, Lisa Thomas-Tench, and Kori Brus,

Get ready to learn how the landscape of fund raising is changing on the social web! From the new giving site,, to facebook apps that make a difference, to how Union Gospel Mission is using the Web to engage and reach out to new donors.

In addition, we will also hear from Lisa Thomas-Tench who will talk about how social media is being used to connect people and communities in Africa.

Kori Brus will also demo the new, open, and participative website for Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver – which was strategized by Communicopia and built by Agentic. (Note: Inviting Kori to present does not constitute an endorsement for this mayoral campaign, but rather gives a chance to share the technology and social media strategy they’re using to reach out to and engage supporters.)

The Vancouver Net Tuesdays are participating in a world-wide Peer-to-Peer Social Change theme for the month of October. We’ve already launched a collaborative Google Map and FriendFeed room.

It’s a free event from 5:30pm until 7:30pm at Workspace (21 Water Street) in Gastown.

    Thanks for the shout-out, RB. Workspace missed your live-blogging ways, but your election Twittering was rad enough to make up for your absence.

    Plus: Joe Solomon gets huge props for pulling this crowd together.
