Tomorrow is Leap Day!
What better way to celebrate than lunch at the Indianapolis City Market?
Homeless organizations have long used the word-of-mouth tool to spread awareness for their services and needs, but today, word-of-mouth is amplified thanks to the improvement and high use of social media and the internet. There is no doubt that homeless organizations will continue to rely on this low-cost and convenient tool to continue to spread the word about their mission and services, but one obstacle that is often faced is getting others to recognize which organizations are using social media and exactly why they are using it.
Our Homeless Initiative Program, Horizon House, The Salvation Army, Dayspring Center, Back on My Feet Indy, Schools on Wheels and others will be “tweeting” up at the City Market tomorrow during the lunch hour.
You will be able put some faces behind Twitter accounts, learn why and how homeless organizations are using social media, or use the event as a reason to get some good grub at the City Market!
Look for the big sign that says-
Indy Homeless Organizations SM Tweetup
