Hah. I especially love the “free shipping” tag on Justin Bieber!
In all seriousness, Shaun King of Courageous Church in Atlanta was inspired to combine the power of Twitter, Pop Culture Celebrities, and the great need in Haiti to change the world, “one tweet at a time.”
Essentially it’s a celebrity auction that makes a difference. The winning bidders get to have the following occur:
Justin Bieber (or whoever the auction is showcasing) will follow you on Twitter for a minimum of 90 days, will retweet one of your tweets and will send out a tweet including your @twitterhandle.
It will be at the celebrity’s discretion to continue following the winner beyond 90 days.
Might just be worth it if you’re a fan (or a business trying to leverage a little traffic bump).
I think this idea is genius and it’s obviously been well-executed. Kudos to you Shaun and thanks for being inspired and actually doing something about it!
