A Birthday Wish for NWF’s Resident Social Media Guru

A few of us at the National Wildlife Federation wanted to take a moment to give a shout out to our resident Social Media Outreach Coordinator, Danielle Brigida. If you have ever encountered NWF on a social media site, there's a 99 percent chance you found us because Danielle signed us up, or influenced the person who did.

Danielle is one of those superstar staff members who gives her all day in and day out to connecting people to nature through online (and offline) mediums. She has also helped countless people in the nonprofit and conservation field figure out how to engage audiences through social media.

Danielle is turning 25 tomorrow, and–it's no shock to us–she is donating her birthday to NWF through Facebook's Causes Application.

Danielle Brigida's Birthday Wish

Just wanted to let everyone know, as she's being a bit modest about promoting this page. I figure there might be one or two of you out there who have been influenced or touched by Danielle's love for nature and technology who at the very least might want to wish her a Happy Birthday!

In addition to her asking her friends and family to donate to this cause in lieu of getting her any gifts, she is also organizing a stream cleanup in lieu of having a big party. We're heading out to the creek where she spent countless "green hours" of her childhood chasing frogs, adopting box turtles and tadpoles and becoming the nature girl she is today.

Happy Birthday Danielle!
