In this day and age, new media is changing the way people give back, and actor Ashton Kutcher is hoping he can prove it by leveraging the power of his social network.

Kutcher, along with a long list of well-known investors, is teaming up with the University of California, San Francisco Hospital, and Causes.com to build a new wing of UCSF’s Children’s Hospital — and they’re doing it digitally, baby!

During the eight-week competition, individuals will have the chance to raise money for the project by starting a team and using their social network to build support. The winner will be decided, not by who gives the most, but who gathers the most individuals donors.

Up for grabs is the chance to name the UCSF Hospital’s Children’s Activity Space, which is set to be completed in 2014, and some major bragging rights. But that’s not all!

Entrepreneurs who reach 75 donors will get the chance to pitch their idea or start-up to Conway. Those who reach 100 or more will be given a luxury suite at a 49ers Game for 10 people.  And the team who scores 150 donors first will get private dance lessons from MC Hammer. Fancy!

Check out the video below and stop by Causes.com to learn how you can start a team and help promote this awesome project!

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
