Social media and news in recent times have been filled with hate and negativity. Just as you cannot fight the darkness, only light lamps, Hate and Negativity cannot be fought. You need to bring Love and Positivity forward instead.
I bring to you the We Are the World Blogfest.
Today I share a story about Crowdfunding — the practice of raising small amounts of money from a large number of donors online — was once the province of startups and political campaigns. Over the past five years, it has ballooned into a multibillion-dollar charity industry, with donations going not to gadgets or causes but to individual people.
This growth is fueled by the generosity of ordinary people and social media-driven campaigns.

Please link to them in your WATWB posts and go say hi!
Here are the guidelines for #WATWB:
1. Keep your post to Below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. Link to a human news story on your blog, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Paste in an excerpt and tell us why it touched you. The Link is important because it actually makes us look through the news to find the positive ones to post.
3. No story is too big or small, as long as it Goes Beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD badge or banner on your Post and your Sidebar. Some of you have already done so, this is just a gentle reminder for the others.
