We’ve now received more than 630 comments to our blog entry this morning about hunger in Austin and the work of the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas.
This was just phenomenal, with the 350 comments needed to fill the truck coming in less than six hours. A big THANK YOU to everyone who made this happen: Everyone who commented, and especially all who ReTweeted the original Twitter messages. This was really the power of social media put to work effectively. We’re humbled, amazed and awed at the community that made this occur.
Based on the responses we received, we will be doing more with the Food Bank and–if they want–with Social Media Club Austin and 501 Tech Club of Austin. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, if you’re in the Austin area (and you guys are truly awesome) please support the HAM-up Tweet-up to benefit CAFB.
There were a lot of great comments made, and some very interesting questions raised, and some good suggestions that should provide more opportunity for discussion here.
