The Experiment

Is it possible in today’s world of social media to more effectively raise money and create awareness for a cause online versus traditional methods? I will find out as I communicate solely via social media channels in all conversations between friends, coworkers… and even my wife for the month of May 100 days or till I reach 100k!

1) To see if is feasible to get through an entire month life successfully without changing any social, leisure and professional habits.

2) To see what situations work and don’t work for Social Media

3) To see how not talking affects my life.
