3. Man Saves Dozens of Pups with Social Media Page
To share his love of dogs, Matt Nelson created a Twitter page where he rated pictures of them on a scale of 1/10. It is important to note that every dog received and continues to receive a 10.
It quickly received lots of attention and now has millions of online followers. Although this is a great achievement for someone who loves dogs, Nelson wanted more than internet fame – he wanted to make a difference.
For this reason, in 2017, he committed to consistently sharing pup-related crowdfunding goals. To date, he has raised $552,000 in donations and has helped a total of 88 campaigns reach their goals!
