Here’s a story from USAToday, just shared by Deneen Frazier Bowen, in one of her personae.
High school students Nick Anderson and Ana Slavin of Gill, Mass., knew they could raise some money at their school to help the people of Darfur. But they knew they could raise a lot more by enlisting the help of high school students all over the country. They didn’t have friends at every school, but they did have a powerful tool for reaching out to young people â€” social networking sites.
