Hey guys, Bret Love of Green Global Travel has come up with this great idea so here's the a blurb about TRAVEL BLOGGERS GIVE BACK.
|TRAVEL BLOGGERS GIVE BACK!|
You can copy the below post to your own site to encourage your respective followers to participate. There are a lots who have expressed interest. Feel free to use this or alter it however you like for your site, and let us know once it's posted so we can spread via FB/Twitter/etc.
The concept for Travel Bloggers Give Back is simple: We will use our time and energy to convince as many travel bloggers as we possibly can to post stories on their sites between now and Christmas Day about their favorite charity organizations.
To use the power of our collective voice to convince our readers to give whatever they can to the charities nearest and dearest to our hearts.
Want to take part? Here’s what you need to do:
1) Let Us Know You’re Participating
Leave a comment below or hashtag #TBGB on Twitter to let us know you want to lend your voice to the cause. We will immediately put a link to your website on our “Our Favorite Sites” page under a special Travel Bloggers Give Back section (reciprocal links appreciated, but not a requirement).
2) Post Something!
The story should include information about the charity’s history, mission, what they use donations for, and why they’re personally important to the blogger, with a link at the end to the donation page on the organization’s website. We’ll be posting one charity spotlight per week between now and Christmas, but every blogger can do as many or as few posts as they want.
3) Spread the Love!
Share your stories via Facebook, StumbleUpon and Twitter (making sure to hashtag #TBGB so everyone participating can see them). We will promote every single TBGB post via *ALL* of our social networks, and ask everyone participating to do the same.
Imagine the attention we could draw to various charitable causes! Imagine the money we could help raise! Imagine the impact it could have in establishing bloggers as people who care enough about this world we travel to use our clout to help make it better! We think it will be win-win for everyone involved, and very much in the spirit of holiday giving. Like the Whos down in Whoville, let’s raise our collective voice to help start a Movement of Giving!
We have set up a Facebook page here- www.facebook.com/groups
where you can register your article link. Members are asked to also share the links posted there as much as they can.
