DESCRIPTIONHello Howard County bloggers and social media enthusiasts,
You’ve heard of Toys for Tots, right? But have you heard of Tips for Tots?
Tips for Tots is an annual tradition The Greene Turtle staff have held for a number of years where on one day, the staff donate 100% of their tips to Toys for Tots. Last year, across The Green Turtle restaurants, over $60,000 was raised. The goal this year is $90,000.
Come out on December 6th for our next HoCoBlogs and TotallyHoco party, 5-7 p.m. at The Greene Turtle. We’ll have, as a thank you for your help and social media support in sharing news of the December 7th Tips for Tots event, light fare and a buffet provided by the restaurant. Each attendee will get a free drink ticket, too.
And if you bring an unwrapped toy for a child, you’ll get a second drink ticket to use that night.
Even if you can’t attend, will you kindly take a few minutes right now and retweet this tweet, or write your own to promote the event. #TipsForTots, @TheGreeneTurtle
There may be a few bloggers from nearby communities and cities, so this is a great opportunity for some holiday cheer, mingling and reaching beyond our own county zone.
So, please remember …
- Our event is December 6th (food, drink, opportunity to bring an unwrapped toy for a kid)
- The Tips for Tots event is December 7th. You can come to that, too, of course. Your help to spread the news locally is much appreciated.
- An unwrapped toy will get you a second drink ticket.
A personal note on social media and individual responsibility:
Regardless of who you voted for in this year’s presidential election, if you are receiving this email or seeing this invitation, I’m going to make a gross generalization and say that you are likely among the social media elite of our country. I believe we all have a choice at this point it ime: to be a part of the “Noise as News” guerrilla warfare or to stand our ground and be a warrior for what we know to be true.
We each and all have responsibility for what we post, share and give attention to. I implore you to think of this not as a moment in time–a duration–but as a fork in the road.
