Water.org and Kiva Featured on “Facebook Gifts”November 7, 2012 by Sally Farhat Kassab
In today’s online world, conversations begin and life events are celebrated on social platforms like Facebook. Whether the events happen to be birthdays, weddings, graduations, or holidays, more than ever before, people are looking to devote these events to the causes they support. Water.org is excited to be included in today’s introduction of charitable giving through Facebook Gifts, the social platform’s recently launched product that enables real-time gift giving through Facebook.
Water.org has long used Facebook to engage and connect with our supporters, showcase our work, and tell the stories of the people around the world who are affected by the water crisis. We are confident that the inclusion of Water.org in this program will enable us to connect with our supporters in a completely new way while introducing future supporters to our work.
Other organizations included in the launch of charitable giving in Facebook Gifts include American Red Cross, Blue Star Families, Boys & Girls Club of America, DonorsChoose.org, Girls, Inc., Kiva, Livestrong Foundation, Oxfam, RAINN, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
