International Cash Mob Day II
by Andrew Samtoy
So here’s the official announcement: International Cash Mob Day II: May 25, 2012. We hope you can join us. Here in Cleveland, we’ll be doing one in the evening; it may involve QR codes, city history and a band or two, so keep your eyes on our Twitter feed and here on the blog for more information.
But wait, there’s more!
Lisa Gilmore, Los Angeles Organizer Extraordinaire, said she might not be able to do one in May since she’ll be traveling, but that she’ll get someone from her core group to do one. Then, Joanne Foster-Coffin in Chicago suggested that we start sharing organizational responsibilities a bit so that communities are not dependent on a single organizer. Communities can keep the same Twitter feeds and invite the same people on Facebook or via email, but the organizers should think about letting someone else take the reins for different Cash Mobs. I think it’s a genius move.
So here’s a suggestion: if you’ve been organizing Cash Mobs in your community, and you’ve organized three (3) or more, reach out to someone who has been to a mob and who you think would do a good job organizing and get them to organize May 25. Extra points if they’ve never been a community leader before, but you think they have what it takes. Support them, help them, but make sure that they’re the responsible party. Then, enjoy the mob!
