Social Media for Social Good

by Alessandra Cavalluzzi

Billionaire Bill Pulte, CEO of Pulte Capital, is changing the face of philanthropy by harnessing the power of social media to make a difference. In the space of a few short weeks he's given away tens of thousands of dollars to veterans, the homeless, and people from all walks of life who are in need of assistance. During this time, he's gained over 80,000 Twitter followers and has partnered with nonprofits like Code of Vets and other community groups to kick off fundraisers that have rallied the Twitterverse in an unprecedented movement which Bill coined #TwitterPhilanthropy. Bill has also partnered with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a campaign to eliminate blight from the world. Follow Bill on Twitter @pulte to learn more about this incredible project and how you can get involved in Twitter Philanthropy.

Bill’s message is that every donation counts. No amount is too small. This is a message we can truly get behind and it’s the same sentiment we reinforce throughout “A Million Dollars In Change”. There is no wrong way to give. Whether it’s dollars, volunteer hours, or in-kind contributions, every act of giving makes a difference.

Are you ready to join the movement? Together, we can change the world!
