The Sydney Social Media Kitchen = Soup Kitchen + Social Media Types whose interested?

Soup Kitchen
When I was on holiday recently in Brisbane, I volunteered at a Soup Kitchen it was a really great experience. Since being in Sydney I have volunteered at Sydney Vinnies Soup Kitchen but after my first night they told me I had to be in a team and all the teams were full!

(PLUS)

Social Media Crew

Moving to Sydney was a scary proposition but since being here it has been much easier through meeting a number of the Social Media heads at events (MOMO Sydney and Friday Morning Social Media Breakfasts). These are great events to socialize and meet other people with a similar passion for Social Media. (how corny does that sound, but stick with me!)

(EQUALS)

Sydney Soup Kitchen

Wouldn’t it be a great if we could harness the participation that we get at some of the meet ups and give that value of a group of people meeting to a good cause at the same time. So I am just throwing an idea out there, who would be interested in once a month volunteering for a soup kitchen with other social media types?

Second question does anyone know of a Soup Kitchen that is looking for volunteers?


NAB EPIC FAIL PART 2
Seeing as it is Blog Action Day and I don’t know if my above post actually qualifies as talking about ‘Poverty’, I have decided to get guest blogger Fake Frank from NAB (you can follow him on Twitter) to say a few words.

If you haven’t heard yet about the EPIC FAIL from NAB then you need to read this. Read the comments section that is where Frank gets introduced.

I am interested in creating an Nab SPAMMING Part 2, anyone got ideas for where we should take this one?

Can social media types communicate with people in the real world? I thought they only speak through blogs, facebook etc? How would they go talking to homeless people face to face?

Maybe they could send an update to their blogger mates they have never met before with a facebook status up date Such as '[INSERT NAME] is just feeding homeless ppl.LOL- OMG these people don't hav iPhones WTF? ROFL'

Just playing....

do they enjoy watercress and softcrab claw soup like the marketing people enjoy?

But seriously good luck. You could probably find a more worthy 'cause though as in my experience most homeless people bring it on themselves.

It would be kinda funny too as they could ask for change from their meal without handing over any money.

I'm just getting into social media and have been meaning for ages to do some volunteering. Combining the two? Love it. If you find one, I'm in...

Jules, Contacts for you below if these help?. I would join you but have just joined and volunteered for Rotary. But let me know amount of time and when and I can make a call then.

Sydney has three night patrol vans that are always looking for volunteers, especially young people. Vinnies is a great organisation to be involved in, allowing you to work in areas of poverty, injustice, with migrants and refugees, etc.

No room on the team!?

Guess that's a good thing.

Surely like all good teams they have a bench?

if not, suggest it to them.

Chezza said...

Hey I like watercress soup!

I'd definitely be interested in joining you in a monthly meetup/helpup/whatever.

Nice work, knucklehead. What's in it for me?

Josh Strawczynski said...

Julian, warming the bench on the soup kitchen..harsh. lol

Julian Cole said...

Dear Frank,

I will miss you, you were fun and you stood as a great example of NAB foray into social media. But alas you have done now.

Thank you for the smiles

Julian


Okay now onto the interesting stuff,

Thanks so much for those details Fi, I am going to get onto the second crew, St Canice Soup Kitchen because St. Vinnies were the ones I tried it with.

Nikkiee and chezza I will let you guys know how I go and hopefully we can get a good crew down there to help. : )
