Today was an exciting day; I was able to see a tidbit of my work thus far come to fruition. I logged on to the website this morning and there they were: two projects were posted for Day of Caring! I had projects, after just a few days of my event being spotlighted on the website and before I even sent out the agency ‘save the date’ postcards. Those first projects are the product of just a couple weeks of work in a list of projects that will continue to grow throughout the summer. By seeing the couple projects added, I am looking forward to seeing the creativity and differences in the projects that will develop Day of Caring into an enjoyable community-wide event as it has been in previous years.
This morning I also met with the communications director and we discussed a few different social media ideas to get started on and to get the word out into the community about Day of Caring. And now, today we have a Facebook event, Day of Caring 2013, on the United Way of Central Mass organization page and Day of Caring tweets on Twitter @UnitedWayofCM . ‘Like’ and ‘follow’ United Way now; throughout the summer the Facebook and Twitter will be useful social media tools to share Day of Caring information, details, past event pictures, and so much more!
