indexMy son is organizing a non-profit organization with his friends called, “We Must Be Heard”. 

Their mission is “to empower teens around the world to be heard through social media and activism. Teens today have the largest voice that has ever been possible, being that a single tweet can reach millions of eyes in nanoseconds. We want to know how teens, like you, use their social media and what platforms they use. Our goal is to make it possible for our generation to make a real impact in the world by having our voices heard through social media.”

To launch their non-profit, they want to gather information and have put together a survey.  Please share this survey on your social media-Twitter, Facebook, Instagram so that they can have lots of teens fill it out.  Your help is much appreciated.

Please go to this link to fill out the survey.  The survey is cut and pasted below for your viewing.

We are a non-profit organization founded by teens for teens. Our mission is to empower teens around the world to be heard through social media and activism. Teens today have the largest voice that has ever been possible, being that a single tweet can reach millions of eyes in nanoseconds. We want to know how teens, like you, use their social media and what platforms they use. Our goal is to make it possible for our generation to make a real impact in the world by having our voices heard through social media.We focus on three main topics to achieve this mission: Education, Empowerment, and Exploration; the three Es. We want to educate teens on the ability they have to use social media to make a positive impact on their own lives, such as getting into that top college or landing a killer internship. We also want to empower teens through social media by giving back to those in need; so they too can share in the knowledge and community of social media. Finally, we want to push teens to explore social media like never before; using their virtual voice to spread awareness for the topics you care about!Please help us achieve our mission by taking this survey and answering honestly.
