Social Media

"You get to make a choice. You can remake that choice everyday, in fact. It's never too late to choose optimism, to choose action, to choose excellence. The best thing is that it only takes  a moment—just one second to decide. 

Before you finish this paragraph, you have the power to change everything that's to come. And you can do that by asking yourself (and your colleagues) the one question that every organization and every individual needs to ask today:
Why not be Great?"

-Seth Godin

 

About Us

The Something Great Foundation is a private, family-run organization originally formed in 2003 to raise money to help fight diseases that impact the lives of children. Something Great Foundation’s founder, board of advisors, and its many volunteers are a group of highly motivated individuals who desire to leverage their business skills to have an impact on the world much bigger than any of their personal accomplishments. In 2008, after several years of successful fundraising events, the mission of the organization evolved and broadened. Today, the organization’s mission is very simple and clear–to look for opportunities to do something great. In 2010, Something Great Foundation’s founder donated a 12-foot, diesel box truck to the organization for use in fulfilling its mission. So, now Something Great is mobile–starting a new era and new opportunities for us to do something great. In 2011, the Something Great Foundaton and AGAIN Interactive, a leading social media marketing and technology company, partnered to launch GoodInfluence. This exciting new technology platform is dedicated to bringing charities, brands, and their fans together to change the world. GoodInfluence, through it's state-of-the-art "Ripple Effect" technology functionality, enables charities to leverage the significant social media influence of their existing supporters to drive new supporters.
