We wanted to highlight an interesting and informative infographic from Mashable shared with us by our friend Mazy. It’s a great chart on the impact of social media on giving compared to other more traditional methods.

We may be a bit biased but we at the JP are huge proponents of using social media for good. This chart really gives us encouragement that what we’re doing with videos – raising awareness and fundraising – is something that can make a difference. The big takeaway from all of this, though, is that none of this social giving would be possible without you our friends. We’re living in an era where everyone and anyone can be a change maker because remember, doing good is contagious!
