Can a good story change the world?

Check out this audio podcast from the  Social Philanthropy blog:

The Power of Stories in Social Change

What especially gets my attention these days  is the power of social media as a channel– okay, lots of channels!–  for  telling stories for social change.  Through theglobalgoodblog I am starting  out by exploring topics of interest and asking questions. Hopefully some of these are the harder questions. (I’m often nervous about the backlash I might get from asking them.)

But what I would really like to do more of is to be the one to help tell those powerful stories for social change. You know.  The ones about the people that make the world a better place, and about the issues we face, and about inspiration to do  what good  we can.

Have you got or do you know of a great story? Please, tell us here!

    All I can say is,”go for it”!

    Don’t hesitate to tell those important stories, I think you will be glad you did.

    And you know what?

    So will a lot of other people whose lives you touch.
