Glad you had a chance to read my piece. I do want to make sure my main point is clear on how I'm defining "creative philanthropy". While my first two examples have used Twitter well, creative philanthropy is platform-agnostic. In simplest terms, creative philanthropy is the introduction of new, innovative ways individuals are using media and technology to raise awareness for causes they care about. Most of the time, these individuals come from outside the non-profit sector and bring different perspectives and approaches. Twestival and charity:water are two other examples for creative philanthropy. Amanda Rose and Scott Harrison are using their respective expertises and employing new tools and tactics to help address social issues. In terms of Twitter fundraising, you've done a great job of collecting a variety of samples and framing out three strategic models. I think we can continue to build on it.
