First, Social Good Mom and Global Team of 200 member, Jennifer Barbour, traveled to Nicaragua last Sunday with WaterAid America to report from the field about WaterAid’s water and sanitation programs in the country. Jennifer has been tweeting, publishing blog posts, and video of everything she has been learning in Nicaragua. Read Jennifer’s philanthropy blog at anotherjennifer.com/category/philanthropy and follow her at @anotherjenb for all of her in-country updates.

We have been chronicling all of the #WaterAidNica dispatches on Tumblr at socialgoodmomsnica.tumblr.com and on Pinterest at www.pinterest.com/socialgoodmoms/social-good-moms-nicaragua.

We ended the week leading to World Water Day with a highly successful #WaterAidNica Twitter chat. Overall, over 1000 tweets went out during the chat that trended nationwide for 20 minutes. Overall, the week of #WaterAidNica tweets and the Twitter chat resulted in 1800 tweets reaching 2 million Twitter accounts with over 10 million impressions and nearly 300 interested bloggers.
