#SportsDoingGood: 10/9/13

“Maybe together we can do our own good.”

Do you ever hear of a story to help someone and wonder what happened after they were helped? I do. More often than not, I forget to check back to see the results. Thankfully, Twitter is one way to stay in touch with these types of stories. Russell Athletic’s tweet above is indicative of the #SportsDoingGood stories I look for.

For those who are seeing that hashtag for the first time, #SportsDoingGood is my one-woman Twitter project (crusade) to share more of the good stories in sports. We are bombarded every single day with the negative and sometimes seedy side of news and sports that the good that is being done often gets lost in the sea of today’s social media/television messages. Teams, leagues, athletes are all using their positions in the sports world for good and #SportsDoingGood is helping spread the word.

Here are a few recent examples I’ve come across in #SportsDoingGood. Links in the tweets are clickable.

  • When you’re a former NFL MVP and Super Bowl winner, putting your name behind a project speaks volumes. The “Raise Hope for Congo” campaign is the beneficiary of Green Bay Packers’ quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, clout.ThinkProgress.org
  • This Washington Post story on former Georgetown Hoya and current Washington Wizard, Otto Porter, touched many people, including Luke Russert.

FINAL THOUGHT: If you know of any sports person, team or organization doing good, please let me know via Twitter (@CadChica). I would love to share it in this blog and on my social media networks.
