Tweet A Wish for Jacob!

Do you have a job that you just love because it makes you feel so good? I was lucky back in the cable days to get to work on a lot of “give back” projects for many charities, the types of things that make you feel good at work and sometimes, the things that brought happy tears, image be damned! This afternoon I found one of those things in my email. It was an alert for a sponsored post opportunity that I was going to write regardless of the compensation offer. Here it is…

LeapFish is teaming with Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant a wish to a special 4-year-old. This grabs at my heartstrings because my cousin’s daughter was just 4 when she was diagnosed with leukemia. Make-A-Wish sent her to Disneyworld and that’s the wish of Jacob.

Jacob is four-years-old and has a rare, life-threatening disease that has affected him since he was born. His one big wish is to visit Disneyland and LeapFish and Make-A-Wish are using tweet-a-cause, a social media initiative trough Twitter to make that wish come true for Jacob and his family.

Tweet-A-Cause empowers Twitter users to make a difference one Tweet at a time. The campaign for Jacob’s Wish runs from today, November 26 until November 27. As their part in the cause, in the Adopt-A-Wish program, LeapFish will donate five cents for every Tweet to Jacob’s wish. Think about all of those addresses in the headers of forwarded jokes, translate that to Tweets at a nickel each and we can amass the $10,000 needed to grant Jacob’s wish in no time!

If you have a Twitter account, please, oh please, tweet this message: “Just tweeted 2 grant a childs wish! #LeapFish donates to #makeawish foundation for each tweet. http://bit.ly/3Tj8A Please retweet!” I tweeted that in my, once in a while used, Twitter account. If you have a Twitter account, please consider pasting that in and getting your contacts to click on it too!
