Social media has grown so much more than people ever thought it would. Sure, seeing what your friends are up to is great. It saves the time of a phone call, and cuts out the hassle of mailing pictures to one another. It also does something totally magical that I don’t think anyone predicted.
When people band together, truly great things can happen.
This was posted on a Thursday night by a concerned guy who just wanted to help out a homeless man who was obviously trying to climb out of the difficult situation he had gotten into.
…he had MULTIPLE resumes printed out and enveloped.”
Predictably, a local news station got hold of the story and it started spreading like crazy! People shared the story more and more, and just 7 days later, he had been offered a job.
He was quoted having said that he was…
…ecstatic and grateful for the opportunity to work as a cook at a downtown restaurant called Pizza Rock”
Sure, he probably would have eventually gotten a job. But a 1 week time frame is incredible! It’s the power of social media (and good-willed people) at work! He didn’t want handouts. He didn’t want cash. He wanted help to help himself.
