Charities Gaining from Online Tech Revolution
By Justin Garvin
Project: Raise Your Voice is an Orange County based charity spreading the word about the worldwide dangers of HIV/AIDS. The charity itself, publicized by The Project Media Group, consists of a magazine, benefit events, annual mission trips to the war-torn countries of Africa and South America, and several other awareness spreading divisions dedicated to improving living conditions worldwide. But not to negate the relevance of the charityâ€™s name, broad informational outreach must be attained if the cause of these individuals is ever to reach their ultimate aspirations.
Enter the world of technology we inhabit today. Personal contact communication is becoming obsolete and replaced by the immediacy of the digital data streamâ€¦and for good reason. The sheer amount of information at our fingertips is awe-inspiring whenever we grab a mouse and access the Internet. Though some corporations pay their outside sources thousands to ensure their visibility online, Internet searches are becoming more and more relevant to each personal inquiry made. As Yellow Pages and community bulletin boards enter antique shops, online publication is becoming an issue of growing importance. It is through this channel that charities such as Project: Raise Your Voice will make their name heard.
