redcrossphoto-1One of the first things I check in my in-box every morning is Beth’s Blog. I’m not alone, she has many followers because it’s always worth reading. It’s one of the longest running and most popular blogs for nonprofits.  Beth Kanter, is the author of Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media. She’s also the author of The Networked NonProfit; Connecting with Social Media to Drive Change with Alison H. Fine. A copy sits on my book shelf, I refer to it frequently and share it (but keep close track of who borrowed it).  Today’s post, ‘What To Do When There is An Emergency? Red Cross Has An App for that!” needs to be shared widely. You can install this app, text GETFIRST to 90999 to receive a link to download the app directly to your phone today. The Red Cross tag line for this new app is “Simple lifesaving information in the hands of smart phone users.”
