We are happy to have Sarah Evans stop by the blog today to share details on the international flash mob event she has been organizing.
What is a flash mob? It is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place (communicated via social networks), perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then quickly disperse.
This Friday, June 4 is the first #somob4good, an international flash mob event to raise awareness for social service agencies. The mission of #somob4good to raise awareness for social service agencies around the world, many of which suffer from lack of funding and therefore cannot or are limited in providing much needed support in the communities they serve.
So, let's give them an opportunity for awareness and a platform for support.
For more details, to join a mob or create your own, join the Social Mob 4 Service fan page.
Even if you can’t participate in person, share your stories about social service agencies and their impact in your life via CNN iReport.
