Manos p’arriba! On Your Feet International Music & Dance

22 04 2010

There’s so many things going on this weekend but if you love international music and dancing, there’s one event you can not miss! On Your Feet International Music and Dance Extravaganza is this weekend and you better get ready to get your groove on! By the way, what’s up with all these dance/music festivals calling themselves “extravaganza” all the time??? Okay, I digress.  Not only will it be a good time but it’s for a great cause. The event will raise awareness and cold hard cash for Casa Marianella, a nonprofit that provides shelter and services to immigrants in Austin.

Check out their vid and line-up!

An exotic evening of sizzling music and captivating dances by world class performers that are sure to keep your feet moving and your head bobbin!

Be the Change 2.0

I was recently on a social media panel with some pretty amazing nonprofiteers (Neff, Turner, Davenport & Adams) at the 501 Tech Club. We discussed how we use social media (FB, Twitter, YouTube, Linkedin, etc.) to engage our volunteers, donors and peeps.  I was amazed by the turnout. There are lots of people utilzing these new tools and even more wanting to know how to best use them. I am a big fan of social media so I’ll be the first one to tell you to start picking it up!  Interested in learning more about it?  Here’s an article I wrote for GivingCity Magazine – The Guide to Doing Good in Austin.

Any nonprofits using social media out there already? How do you use it? How does it help your nonprofit?

Inquiring minds want to know!
