So I Did It… | ZAPSOCK

I took my own advice.

This may be the first time in a long time.

I thought about it for a long time after I posted my previous post today about utilizing the power of Facebook for good. And I did it.

I started a Facebook group called “When This Group Reaches 1M Members, I Will Donate $1M to Help the Homeless”

Everyone that joins has to donate a dollar. All of that money will be donated to helping the homeless once the group has reached 1,000,000 members.

Stopping World Hunger With Facebook | ZAPSOCK

I see a lot of Pages and Groups on Facebook that are called, “I bet I can find 1,000,000 people who want to stop world hunger” or “I bet I can find 1,000,000 people who disapprove of the health care reform bill.”

I don’t join these groups.

Why? Because I don’t see what these Facebook groups are doing to actually combat these problems besides talking about it.

I join a group and it shows everyone that I want to stop world hunger, but what am I actually doing to get it done?

I think that these types of groups should charge $1 for every person that joins the group.

Can you imagine the power of that?

$1,000,000 raised in a matter of weeks for whatever cause? And all you have to do is have people drop a $1 into PayPal.

The only problem that I see with it are scam artists. How do we sort out the cons from the causes?

What do you think?
