"In 2013, Ahmad, now 25, launched a phone app to encourage private companies and event planners to donate extra food. Feeding Forward is a not-for-profit service that allows users to arrange—on-demand— for Feeding Forward drivers to pick up leftover food and deliver it directly to areas and people that need it most. In San Francisco, the app has helped feed over 575,000 homeless people by redistributing nearly 690,000 pounds of excess food."

In a world filled with greed, hate, and negativity, there is still hope for generosity, compassion, and a brighter future.

Blast from the past. Still valid imho.
The social upheaval that exploded in Tunisia and Egypt is spreading across the Arab World. At the time of this writing, dissent is snowballing in Libya, Bahrain and Iran. In the wake of these extraordinary events, a myriad of discussions on the role the Internet and the social web has emerged. Cyber-utopians are praising Twitter … Continue reading Digital and social activism: no small change →

An often underdeveloped #contentmarketing asset: content, insights and ideas emerging from your own people http://owl.li/Nh2P0
Click here for details of our upcoming workshop in London on June 9th.In professional and financial services, as well as other knowledge-intensive sectors, clients care more about the expertise and abilities of those who serve them than they do about the brand identity of the firm. Yet many firms continue to put resources behind generic marketing and branding that fails to utilise perhaps their greatest asset, which is content, insights and ideas...

Brilliant social business model: create a health insurance company that accepts garbages as form of payment, sell garbage to recycling companies, use money to finance health insurance of the poor who paid with garbage. The bonus: you can use this model for other issues such as access to education.

“You have people who can’t go to the hospital because they don’t have money. So I started thinking, if you don’t have money, what do you have?” Gamal said.

“There’s garbage everywhere on the ground. So we decided to use garbage as a financial resource,” he continued.

He then created a company called Garbage Clinical Insurance which collects the trash that is given to him by his patients and then sells it to recycling companies. The money earned from the recycled garbage is then used to pay for medicine and health care for the people who turned in the trash.

Source: www.trueactivist.com | Original Post Date: April 23, 2015 – A doctor in Indonesia recently came up with an idea that can help to provide healthcare to the needy and put a dent in garbage pollution as well. Dr. Gamal Albinsaid recognized that many people in his country had severe health problems with no insurance, and no …

The next time we tweet a fact in defense of our truth and feel smug about our own smartness, think about @Factbot -- a machine that lies -- and reconsider.

I am moved to reflect the importance of a lie... “Anybody who travels knows that you’re not really doing so in order to move around — you’re traveling in order to be moved.”

"I learned in that moment, when I took everything from him, the importance of lying, not merely telling an untruth but lying, with passion and flourish like an actor on a stage claiming to know that which they do not know, for the lie that keeps hope and dreams intact is preferable to a truth that removes them. Lies and truths are easy to come by but dreams that sustain people through difficult lives are not. I wish I could take back the day."

"A digital identity led by employees on social media can be a strategic development resource. Keep in mind that the biggest learning curve in leveraging the power of social media isn’t about operating an account, but enabling employees to create a clear, confident and authentic voice."
There are compelling stories emerging from different sectors of employees using public social networks during working hours to build resilience as well as drive growth within their organisations.With the help of social networks we are now able to interact with a much wider circle of people than ever before. This allows us to have meaningful conversations based on our interests rather than physical proximity. There is a growing recognition of the ...

Story
Tagline
I help your brand evolve from Content Maker to Content Crusader -- to create content not because it’s marketable, but because it matters.
Introduction
I provide solutions in the overlapping fields of content, social, and business analysis.
  • I help your brand evolve from Content Maker to Content Crusader -- to create content not because it’s marketable, but because it matters. Empowering your target audience with compelling content that makes them smarter, transforms you into an authority in their eyes. My goal is to help you conquer content mediocrity and attract your ideal audience -- to nurture meaningful relationships with your audience by optimising content for discovery and conversion. Specifically, I'll develop and harmonise three essential elements of your social and online marketing: customer personas, relevant content offering, and touchpoints for engagement and conversion.
  • I’ll also help your brand become social by design: Social is not what you do -- it’s what you are. For that to happen, we need strategy, planning, and courage. I won’t stop at at making you better in social media -- I’ll help you become a better business because of it.
  • My passion for social and content is anchored by my solid experience in business analysis and requirements management. This enables me to apply an integrated approach to your projects and provide holistic solutions: you'll always get that extra value you deserve.
The work I’ve done in the Netherlands is a blend of both business and project-level functions. I can fulfil different roles in different phases of an online project. I can integrate strategic planning with operational execution.

In the Philippines, I taught political science, humanities, politics of gender and art appreciation, and gave trainings on community radio broadcasting and journalism. I was a copywriter for TV, radio and print, and was active in advocacy campaigns.

I blog on social media, politics, activism, education, and the Philippines. I also plan to revive my diabetes blog (Diabetic Hobbit). I'm a Filipino living in the Netherlands with my Dutch husband whom I met in the Two Towers MUD, and our just-turned-a-toddler Apprentice Wizard-Ninja-Capsuleer. I refer to myself occasionally as delunna and hobbit ;-p
