Non-Profit organizations across the globe now have a new tool to help them use social media.

"Social media is the way of the future. So are we. This book helps you take a step forward for your organization and our world. And, we need a new coffee machine in the staff lounge," added Snidely

Puppet shows hailed as solution for social service cutbacks


A new technique involving puppets is being hailed as the answer for cash-strapped local social service agencies facing government cutbacks. The new "Puppet Show" project being pioneered by the Metro Community Health Centre will replace most of live community outreach services with twice-daily puppet shows that achieve most of the same things.

"This a breakthrough in operational planning," said Centre Executive Director Jane Snidely. "Now, instead of sending our health workers to people's homes, we can invite them to see some really innovative and entertaining puppet shows here at our headquarters, and they can bring their kids."

The puppet shows will feature characters that approximate real social workers and health experts. They will deliver health information through 20 minute puppet shows on topics such as HIV/AIDs, Diabetes, obesity and job counseling for recently unemployed social service workers.

"The money we will save from laying off our outreach workers will more than make up for our government cutbacks this year and we'll also be able to hire three new puppeteers," said Snidely.

The first puppet show of the new season will be "Ollie and Jolly talk about the dangers of binge drinking". Popcorn and snacks will be offered at reasonable rates.
