Social Media Redux
Vik recently sent me a link to this story about Zero Trash Laguna, a successful nonprofit that formed as an online grassroots movement. Utilizing social media sites like blogs, Facebook, and Twitter, the organization has connected citizens from the Laguna Beach, who have moblized to make a difference offline, in the real world. This connection between online media and social action is an essential ingredient of People's Parking Lot's success.
No events are currently planned but let me know if you have an idea for something. With the weather changing and the academic year in full swing, I'll mainly be posting information about news and events that I think will interest readers of this site. Please get in touch if you would like to share something.
As an Associated Program with Shunpike, People's Parking Lot is now able to accept donations from the good people of the internet. Our events are all planned and executed by volunteers so every dollar counts. So if you're feeling generous and would like to put a few dollars toward next year's Park(ing) Day (for insurance, sod, supplies, etc.), it would be greatly appreciated!
