Baltimore GiveCamp 2013 and ‘Seminar Saturday’ for the October 18th NonProfit Commons Meeting

This Friday, October 18th, TechSoup's Nonprofit Commons in Second Life meeting is happy to feature Sally S. Cherry (SarVana Haalan in SL), MT(ASCP) who will be discussing Baltimore GiveCamp (BGC); the event’s social media awareness campaign; and her upcoming Seminar Saturday presentation, “Nonprofit Capacity Building Through Social Media and Virtual Worlds. 

 

Baltimore GiveCamp is the largest volunteer technology event in the state of Maryland. The weekend-long charity hack-a-thon for local nonprofits is one of many annual “Coding for Charity” events held in the USA and various countries around the globe. It will be held from Friday, October 18th through Sunday, October 20th, 2013 at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) in Baltimore, Maryland (USA). This year, more than 230 technical and non-technical volunteers will be helping thirty (30) nonprofit organizations achieve their customized “wish list” technical projects.

 

In 2012, Baltimore GiveCamp was just another “nice” tech event for Sally until two real life colleagues extended an invitation to volunteer. In response, she volunteered as a project manager at Baltimore GiveCamp 2012 and immediately became a Baltimore GiveCamp advocate. As a Baltimore GiveCamp 2013 volunteer, Sally has been helping with the event’s social media awareness campaign. She will be one of nine speakers at the event’s annual ‘Seminar Saturday’, a series of one hour seminars pertaining to marketing, technology, capacity building, strategic planning, and the business of operating a nonprofit organization. ‘Seminar Saturday’ is free for any 501c3 nonprofit organization to attend on Saturday October 19, 2013.

 

In her Seminar Saturday presentation, Sally will be sharing information, case studies, and perspectives about various social media and virtual world platforms for building capacity within nonprofit organizations. The presentation is designed to provide a basic understanding of how social media and virtual world platforms can be used for community outreach, program promotion, cause awareness, networking, fundraising, and other activities.

For instance, coffee shops have menus of brown color or shades of the same hue in order to bring the atmosphere of the cafe and set it in the menu. Whereas, a Japanese or Chinese restaurant would make a more colorful menu that uses images that reflect their culture and their food – since their dishes include various colors.
