Blogger Social Responsibility

Got an email from Paddy over the weekend. This is not about Bak2u or Blog2u. But about a charity event by Heart-to-heart that Blog2u is helping.

I’ve known Paddy personally for many years and I was a member of his now defunct forum wanttotrade.sg. The forum used to have some charity drive to collect food and daily necessities for Heart to Heart. Heart to Heart is a non-profit, non-government aided welfare set-up initiated by Teresa Hsu. She is 109 years old this year and still doing her part for charity. Reading about her contributions makes me feel ashame of myself.

It’s a pity that wanttotrade.sg is no longer functioning. But it’s nice to know that Blog2u is helping Heart-to-heart spread the message about their monthly food distribution drive thru their members. Blogging is not just about ranting and making money. There should be more to it.

It is good to know that Blog2u has adopted Corporate Social Responsibility concept. In the past, we only heard of large organization adopting CSR. But CSR shouldn’t be restricted to just large organization. SME can play a part too. Perhaps they can’t create a big impact like large organizations, but it’s the thoughts that count.

We bloggers can play a part in charity too. Maybe we can call it Blogger Social Responsibility? The blogsphere is a powerful media and I believe that we bloggers can help generate awareness on this great charity organization.

Do help spread the message on your blog.

  2. You are right, DK. It’s really interesting to see a smaller organisation considering CSR. And it’s probably from the heart rather than doing it for the publicity.

  3. Priscilla: Yeap. I always feel that CSR should be done from the heart. If you do for the sake of publicity, you most likely won’t get much benefits from it.
