Vlog Fundraising and Widgets

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I'm thinking about the use of video or vlog posts coupled with fundraising widgets as well as some other possible ways (ad revenue from web videos?) When I wrote about video blogging and nonprofits way back in September, I discovered the Have Money Will Vlog (see their video here ), and it's an excellent example of what Peter Dietz calls micro-philthranthropy. I read on Netsquared about how Creative Commons is trying to raise money with its video on Revver and am trying it out.

I was also curious to see whether there were nonprofits using vlogs to promote their causes. Now almost a year later, there is renewed interest in vlogging and nonprofits. There has been online conversation during the past couple of weeks on vlog list , Netsquared , TechSoup and Blogher.

Seth Mazow's Recap and Vlog Post of Humaninet's SimDay: Technology and Relief Workers

Beth's Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media

I wrote a blurb on Netsquared about the HumaniNet's Sim Day event. Luckily Seth Mazow from Interplast , who attended the event, not only posted a recap but also captured a few words on video from Gregg Swanson, Humaninet's ED. Keep an eye on their blog for more information. Makes me wonder about whether or not the nonprofits attending this event would be the right users for Ken Thompson's Swarm Teams
