Follow Friday: Harrison Kratz (@KratzPR)

We are in the time of year when it is better to give than to receive.  Today’s Follow Friday choice, Harrison Kratz, is giving all across the country.  He is the person behind “The Holiday Tweet Drive,” a nation-wide toy/clothing drive that is using social media to give back to children who are less fortunate.

The Tweet Drive has taken place in cities like Philadelphia, Boston, and Cleveland.  New York City, Chicago, and Atlanta are just some of the other great cities Harrison has received support from this holiday season. All of the updates and communication for the event are found through Twitter.

The Tweet Drive is simple: donate a new toy or new article of clothing. The donations go to a local shelter or charity from each city.

You can follow the TweetDrive, by logging on to: http://www.meetup.com/TweetDrive/.

You can also follow on Twitter at @KratzPR or @TweetDrive2010.

About JasMollica

"It's never too late to have a life and it's never too late to change one." That's something I tell students, friends, and family all the time. After living and working in New York City, I took my own advice in 2004, switched my career from the television/radio industry and got into public relations. Now, I spend my days as a PR/social media marketing consultant and get inspired daily. It's been a good ride, so far. But the car has plenty of gas left. I hope you'll join along in this guy's journey!
