LIVESTRONG- lupta impotriva cancerului folosind Social Media


In 2004, o mica bratara galbean a schimbat lupta impotriva cancerului.

Bratara LIVESTRONG, care se vindea cu doar 1$, a aparut la mana tuturor acelora care supravietuisera in lupta cu nemiloasa boala, sustinatori, celebritati, in incercarea de a uni oameni din intreaga lume in lupta cu aceasta cumplita maladie. Fondatorul: Lance Armstrong

Simplu si cu costuri minime a fost creata o comunitate care a depsit granitele geografice, culturale, sociale, politice si s-a reusit strangerea de fonduri in valoare de 70 mil$.

Anul 2009 a fost unul important pentru LIVESTRONG. Fundatia si-a gasit un nou sediu si a creat un departament special pentru social media. Rezultatele? Au strans milioane de $, au intervenit in decizii politice si au ajutat milioane de oameni bolnavi de cancer.
