Non-profit Organization Atlanta Mission Discusses Charities and the Power of Using Social Media

Generating a vibrant online presence is a great way to attract volunteers to help spread mission of non-profit organizations.

    ATLANTA, GA, November 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Technology and numerous free online social sharing sites have transformed the world into a true global village. People living oceans apart can communicate with one another in real time just as effortlessly as if they lived next door to each other. Indeed, news often travels faster through the viral grapevine than through traditional media.

Atlanta Mission believes that harnessing the enormous power of social media can be extremely beneficial for charitable institutions. A long-time non-profit organization in Atlanta which started out as a soup kitchen during the depression, Atlanta Mission is committed to serving the needs of homeless families in the area. Social media is an easy and inexpensive way to create and spread awareness of their mission as well as to encourage sympathetic hearts to help.

"We believe strongly in our mission to serve," says Josh Deyton, Director of External Marketing of Atlanta Mission. "We have dedicated hardworking men and women working together each day to carry out this mission. Volunteers, employees, consultants and ordinary people who want to make a difference. Contributions are vital to the fulfillment of our mission, and social media can help spread the word about what we're doing."

Atlanta Mission is one of many homeless shelters in Atlanta doing what it can to end the scourge of homelessness. Consider making a donation - big or small, in kind or cash - and make a difference in a person's life.
