WHAT YOU CAN DO > Promote RaisingAwareness.org


























We have built this site to help people raise awareness of the challenges the world faces - and we want you to fully use its content for your own awareness mission. You can make a difference, with as much (or as little) time as you have. Here are a few things that can get a lot done for RaisingAwareness:

  • Promote RaisingAwareness.org with your friends - and ask them to promote it in turn. Many drops make an ocean. The easiest way are to send the www.raisingawareness.org link, or send/share the RaisingAwareness video via YouTube

  • If you have a website, or you know someone who has a website, make links to RaisingAwareness or embed the RaisingAwareness video (you find the code on YouTube)

  • If you participate actively in SecondLife, or even better if you have space there, promote RaisingAwareness in that space

  • take part in blogs about nonprofit and promote the concept of RaisingAwareness(and related websites). Feel free to use the text and images you find on RaisingAwareness.org, for example the one in the Afghanistan section. See some blogs on our section of del.icio.us, and check out our blog on blogger

  • Check out the online communities that have social content, such as YouTube and Flickr - and use the content you find on RaisingAwareness there to promote it. For example, see RaisingAwareness's sections on YouTube and Flickr and use the videos and photos you find there to comment on othe users' contributions. Alternatively, post there (or on panoramio.com, google earth etc.) your content related to the RaisingAwareness mission (fight poverty, for example) and make it link to either www.raisingawareness.org or to the RaisingAwareness video (the one on YouTube)

  • If you are a student, use RaisingAwareness as a base to start a campaign of social awareness - use the text, the photos, the videos: they are all yours

  • If you have children, ask them to start a school project that leverages the content of RaisingAwareness, especially the "what you can do section", but also make them use the photos and other content to create awareness and spark the discussion

  • If you know how to use online directories (e.g. deli.icio.us) this can help you share the address of raisingawareness.org

  • Add a thought-provoking quotes to the signature of your e-mails - and include the address of a website that you want to promote. Effortless and effective. Quotes are a good thought-catcher and a reminder that something can be done; they will encourage more people to think and to help



You can choose one of the quotes below (or others!) reflecting your personal opinion, and add a link to www.raisingawareness.org. If you need additional technical information on how to add a quote to your e-mails, click here.
