Bob Collins invited me to speak at the next Boston Social Media Breakfast on Wednesday, December 10th at 8:00 am in Cambridge, MA at the Ryles Jazz Club along with Gradon Tripp and Frank Days. Thanks to the generous sponsors FirstGiving and MarketWire, the event is free and it comes with a good breakfast spread.

Realizing that any call to action that makes us look at our wallets might not feel so good, I wondered if there was a way to give something that doesn't require cash? So as part of the event we're running a Food Drive to support The Greater Boston Food Bank, asking attendees to bring canned goods and non-perishable foods to the event.
My slides are posted above, talking about easy ways to give - like the TheGiveList
