Happy Social Good Day (and Week)! How You Can Take Action

I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has the power to make positive change in someone's life or in your community -- that's why I left my TV career and dedicated my life to my passion project, GoInspireGo (GIG). Today and this week, I'd like you to join my team and Mashable in celebrating Social Good Day!

Here's how you can use social media to make difference NOW --

1. Mashable is an amazing, intrepid and innovative platform that inspires individuals around the world to use social media to benefit their communities through community meet-ups, fundraisers, viral videos, and public education campaigns.

2. It's quick and easy, just click here → Mashable Meetups to meet others in your community who are interested in "using social media to inspire social change" and find out how you can participate.

3. In celebration of Social Good Day, please check out three of our inspiring GIG videos that exemplify how easy it is to make a difference. At the end of the videos, you'll find information on how you can create change. And of course, sharing is caring, especially this week -- please join our community on Twitter and Facebook and help spread the goodness to your friends!

Happy #SocialGoodDay!
