In order to be listed on the transplant waiting list a recipient must live within a certain proximity to a transplant hospital. The David Nicklas Organ Donation Awareness Foundation provides free fully-furnished housings for people waiting a life-saving organ transplant who are too far from a hospital. Housing is provided in a Foundation-owned apartment complex in the heart of DFW.  This site launched this week.

The organization also raises awareness of the need for organ donors, has sponsored many events including golf tournaments, car shows, organ donor awareness day with the Texas Rangers, and more.

East Texas Veterans Alliance

etvalliance.orgNearly 100,000 veterans call East Texas home! When families, active duty military, and National Guard/Reserve members are added to that number, this under-recognized segment of the community reaches 250,000 people or 20% of the regional population. More telling is what the East Texas region does not have: a military installation with support services. But the East Texas Region does have organizations, institutions and people that revere those veterans, the military and their families, and strive to sustain an inclusive, dynamic community.

The mission of the East Texas Veterans Alliance is to strengthen the network of community based resources for East Texas veterans, military, and their families.

Posting to Twitter and Facebook on WordPress

It sounds easy.  Publish on WordPress and see your post tweeted and posted on Facebook.    I have used Facebook apps and WordPress plugins with some success, but eventually they were all disappointing me.  They would miss some posts, post blank images, stop working completely (Facebook seems to change daily.).

I have SEO clients with blogs and the tie to social networks is very important and convenient.

NextScrips has finally given me one that works.  I am only using it to post to Facebook and Twitter, but the plugin called, “Social Networks Auto Poster” allows your blog posts to immediately appear on Google+, Pinterest, and Tumbler also.

HINT: Follow the detailed instructions.  You must setup up Apps on Twitter and Facebook. This is easier than it sounds, but follow the instructions.
