Make A Difference With Social Power!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Social Power for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Have you ever wanted to make a change, big or small, in the world around you? One person by themselves may not be able to make a big impact. By using the power of social media, one person can turn into a network of people that can rally together. Social Power was created to help individual people harness the power of social media and collectively make a difference in the world.
How Social Power Works:
The issue you want to resolve does not have to be a big one – it just has to be something you feel passionate about and can be resolved. Once you identify your issue, go to SocialPower.com and start by entering your issue into the search box. Then, share the issue your created with your social networks like Twitter and Facebook. Social Power will share it, too.
Once 1,000 other people support a particular issue, things get exciting! Social Power turns it into an initiative and notifies Agents of Change. Agents of Change are the people who are capable of resolving the problem. They include persons, boards and governing bodies.
I saw a huge variety of issues created at Social Power. From things like “Airlines should reduce or eliminate change fees” and “Facebook should have a Dislike button,” to “Public Schools should offer healthier food options,” I found myself agreeing and thinking, "Man, I would total support that idea!".
Social Power’s co-founder and president, Daniel Gleich, says,
It doesn’t take a soapbox and a bullhorn to change the game…All it takes is an Internet connection and a meaningful issue.
I created an issue on Social Power by thinking of something that bugs me. Colorado is only one of two states (Hawaii is the other) that does not allow the practice of collecting rain water for use in watering our lawns and gardens.  Garden centers and home improvement stores here can sell rain barrels, we can purchase them but, it is illegal to use them! 
I know, I know…that does seem like a frivolous issue when you think of all the “real” problems in the world.  What do you think of my issue?
If you want to support my issue, head over to SocialPower.com and support, comment and/or share my issue with your social network. Who knows? It could become an initiative one day!
