Many of you know first hand the story of skybluepink. Some of you may have read the stories on Mashable, Today, Yahoo and Ellen.
The #skybluepink story was also listed by Ellen’s Good News Blog as one of the Top 10 Good News Stories of 2013: http://shine.yahoo.com/ellen-good-news/top-10-good-news-stories-2013-162500366.html
This gave us a lot of confidence to figure out how we could help make the same #skybluepink concept easier for any family in need by applying the same crowd sourced love concept.
#skybluepink has been asked to partner with Funding Dream (a new startup that is like a kickstarter for social change) to begin thinking of how we can take the concept further.
We are taking the first steps to create a site and materials that support anyone who wants to learn how they can make #skybluepink happen for someone they care about. It would teach you how to select a unique hashtag, tell the personal story of the family member or friend in need, and collect the social love.
We hope this movement helps families and loved ones in a way that medicine can’t deliver against… by simply sending love so people know they’re cared for. We want this to connect people at a human level, with a ripple effect of bonding and understanding within our extended global family around the world.
