Case Foundation Launches "Change Begins With Me" Campaign

The Case Foundation just launched their "Change Beings With Me" campaign to coincide with the new year and new administration in Washington, DC. Tell the Case folks how you're going to help change the world in 2009 (in 250 characters or less, think of it as a muscular Tweet!) and a few lucky winners will get:

An Inauguration trip for two and a unique opportunity to serve on MLK day! Package includes:

  • two tickets to the Inaugural Ceremony & the Hawaii Inaugural Ball
  • three-nights hotel stay
  • airfare for you and a guest to the Nation's Capitol
  • a Flip video camera

Here are a few of the commitments already up on the site:

Dorothee R: leveraging the power of social media to mobilize volunteers in my community. I plan to use online networks to gather crowds for short and fun volunteer flash mobs to benefit homeless shelters, food banks and local parks.    
Keyoka N: Volunteering more, I just recently volunteered helping high school sophmores and I had a blast, I realized how much I enjoy helping kids and young adults make decisions today that will ultimately decide their future.    
Josephine T: Making my neighbourhood cleaner and safer. I also plan to make more people aware of the FREE assistance programs that are available to those who are in need of mortgage modifications.
