Allyson is now a friend on Facebook, but she wasn't before. I don't know exactly how she found out about campaign, so I hope she leave a comment in the post. I appreciate her contribution and that she reposted the pitch and video on her wall. I also liked how she used her status to tell her friends what she was doing. I also like the idea of a young woman helping another young woman from half-way around the world.
She answered my query via Facebook:
I have been reading your blog for about the past year. I can't remember how exactly I found it, but I am a museum consultant (former actual museum employee working in the trenches) and have been spending much of my time for the past year or more researching ephilanthropy for the museum sector. I actually joined Facebook just recently specifically so I could check out the causes app and to see how else Facebook could and is being used to help nonprofits, but once here, discovered that several of my friends were also here! I'm also on Twitter, though I usually forget to sign in but I love your accounts of how Twitter has helped out in the middle of presentations!
