You don’t need a large following when using social media to spread happiness. Sure there are some people who have influence on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and You Tube but your social media can be effective in spreading happiness to your followers.
“ We put out the video and Boom – it was no longer my song” Pharell Williams speaks to Oprah about what happened when his song “Happy” touched the hearts of people globally. The tears of joy pour down his face as he watches people globally take his words on happiness and make it their own. One song brought happiness to millions.
With over 519,000,000 views the lives he has touched with just one song shows us how we can use our voice and power of social media to create happiness all over the world. But you don’t have to be Pharell to make this happen. You can be anyone with a goal to touch just 1.
Our TEDx Talk is great example of this goal. We want to touch one – inspire just one person to give and the ripple that was create completely unexceptionably has made an impact that will reach further than we will ever be able to track with numbers. I was just a Mom and 365give was a small local Canadian charity that wanted to make a little difference in the world – help create a happier world. Almost 3.7 million views on just one social media video.
Spreading happiness using social media is easy, it’s fun and most of all it will increase your own personal happiness. Each post you create has the ability to touch hundreds of millions because you just never know how far your reach will go. The possibilities are endless.
Take a look at just a few of the people on social media that are making a big impact by creating videos and post around their 365give’s.
If you want to make an impact on the world start using your social space to create positive posts that will lift others. Share your stories on how you give with a simple goal – to touch 1. It can be every day or once a week but show up with a simple mission just like we do – to change the world 1 day at a time.
