Worth Sharing

One Tweet = A One Dollar Donation.

Every once in a while, you come across things that are worth sharing. Here is one I found today on Facebook.

The Vine on Patch connects Patch Local Voices contributors from around the country. Their latest Facebook post centers around the fact that the Patch community is helping rebuild the areas devastated by Hurricane Sandy, one tweet at a time.

According to the Patch Rebuilds website, "For every tweet that includes the #PatchRebuilds hashtag, Patch will donate $1 to AmeriCares Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts, up to $125,000. Your gift will help AmeriCares respond to Superstorm Sandy with medical and humanitarian aid, grants, and programs to help support survivors across the country."

If you have a Twitter account, please visit rebuilds.patch.com and take a moment to send out a tweet using the #PatchRebuilds hashtag. If you're not already using Twitter, this is a pretty good reason to start.

It's such an easy way to help. One that is worth sharing.
