Dale Partridge is famous for a whole host of skills, his social media prowess being one of the most well known. He’s appeared on the cover of business publications including Entrepreneur Magazine, INC Magazine, Mashable, MSN Money, Forbes and the Los Angeles Times. And, he’s about to come out with a new book called People Over Profit.
And indeed, it’s very apparent that Dale chooses people over profit. One of his seven companies – Sevenly – helps needy people in a unique way:
“Each week Sevenly partners with one qualified nonprofit, and Sevenly donate $7 from every product sold to support that charity’s cause. Since it’s launch in June 2011, Mashable, Los Angeles Times, and Forbes have named Sevenly one of the fastest growing social good start-ups in the country. In less than two years, Sevenly has given over $3 million in $7 donations to charities across the globe.”
On Monday, Dale chose people over profit in another significant way. He used his social media power to tweet about abortion, and he went even further by daring his 140,000 followers to do the same.
Just before printing this article, I rechecked Dale’s original tweet, and it has so far been retweeted 1,500 times.
Dale is a wonderful example of exactly what this world needs: people from all walks of life who take a moment, use their influence, and speak out against abortion.
We all have our followers – even if there aren’t 140,000 for each of us. But really, we all have people who listen to us.
Stop and think – just like Dale did – how you might be able to reach the audience that you have. How can you speak about life with them? How can you show them the tragedy of abortion? How can you convince them, too, to be a part of ending it?
