Brands embrace social media for social good in this cool, new infographic from our friends at bluehost. Social networks are on fire and people are using them for good. Social enterprises are evolving as a hybrid of a charity and a business. Viral social media campaigns are assisting charities to achieve their goals like never before. One charity, Random Acts, uses social media to encourage the spread of kindness. They were able to raise $200,000 for the Hope for Haiti 2 campaign.

A bunch of celebrities are helping the cause. The likes of Usher and Justin Timberlake helped Keep a Child Alive raise $1 million in 2010. Lady gaga worked with HIV/AIDS programs to raise $202 million. Other celebs helped The Berry Family Children through the “Show Your Hearts” campaign too.
