With all of the negativity that can be seen through social media, it is nice to find people whose words are uplifting and positive. Twice a month, I will spotlight a person or organization that is making an impact on their followers using social media as platform.
What if there were a way for you to have your pie and help someone eat theirs too? This is the idea behind Pie in the Sky, the annual campaign from Massachusetts-based organization Community Servings. With every $28 sale of a pie, a client is supplied with nutritious food for a week. Last year they sold 17,000 pies, raising $600,000 to help feed those who are critically ill and homebound.
I bet you’re thinking, hey! I like pie! I can do this! – and you’re right. If you live in the Boston area, you can get involved by following the #PieintheSky hashtag to see what events are going on. Live outside the city? Not a problem – you could always make a donation to this great cause. Own a bakery? Even better! You can become an official baker for the cause, and know that your passion for baking is making somebody’s holiday that much sweeter.
If you want to keep up to date with the Pie in the Sky campaign -- or if you want some bake sale inspiration for your own area fundraiser -- you can follow the organization all across social media: Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and Yelp.
If all it takes is a slice of pie to make someone's holiday a little brighter, how could you resist?
