Northern Voice 2012

Personal Blogging and Social Media Conference
June 15th and 16th, 2012 in Vancouver, BC

Social Media for Social Change - part of Social Media, Social Change and Politics Panel

How can people with a good cause break through to reach their target audience in a public space already super-saturated with other groups and worthwhile causes? The solution is rooted in the new ‘relationship economy’ where social media has intertwined itself within our social fabric.

Fundraising, volunteer recruitment, charity: it wasn't sexy. Until now. Find out how you can change the non-profit space and re-define your charitable efforts as Richard Loat, CEO and Founder of Five Hole for Food gives you the keys to creating a successful social movement.


Richard Loat is CEO and Founder of Five Hole for Food, a non-profit redefining the social giving landscape. At 23, he was selected as one of BC's top 24 under 24, and has been the brainchild of a non-profit that has risen from a 140 character tweet to raise over 75,000 of food in less than 2 years.
