I had the pleasure of speaking to the Texas Council on Family Violence this week about Social Media Fundraising. However I came out learning a ton from these amazing folks. So let’s say you work for Best Buy or Target, you might not be able to get away with certain things in your Social Media conversations, right? Maybe you can’t curse or comments on politics. Understandable right?
But let’s say you work with adult victims of domestic abuse. Let’s say you work with children of domestic abuse situations. People who are barely coming to terms with what happened to them, much less ever wanting to tell their story. And when they do tell their story on YouTube, Facebook or other methods there could be retaliation from their abusers who see or hear the stories.
Yet telling their story empowers them. And it empowers your Non Profit to show people the change and help you cause in our society. So it needs to be done.
So how does “Telling your Story” work for these populations? Is it changed names and voice overs over stock photos? Is it fake names and photos on Facebook fan pages?
I would love to hear people working in this space, and what other Social Media folks think as well? Please leave your comments below and let us know what you think the solution is?
