A Community Indicator: Share

I know you may be tired of me talking about the March of Dimes Share Your Story Community, but it's growing into an incredible resource and I'm more and more proud to have been involved all the time. I'm sure Nancy White has a lot to say about this too...

As a quick example, the representatives of the March of Dimes are becoming stars of the community. Check out this blog by MoD person James SooHoo and how he is relating to the members around Prematurity Awareness Day. As you see in this post, these kinds of relationships weren't happening before the community was founded.

I think the March of Dimes is finding what more organizations will find in the future - that future success will be built upon enabling, connecting and mobilizing a community of supporters using the Web.
