On the heels of #GivingTuesday, the Case Foundation is encouraging all of us to pause and recognize the true spirit of the holiday season with their #GoodSpotting campaign. They are inviting people to share good deeds they have witnessed on Twitter with the hashtag #GoodSpotting or on their Facebook page. Anyone sharing a #GoodSpotting story through January 2, 2013, can also enter to win $500 in holiday spending cash for themselves, and $5,000 for their favorite charity. See Good. Share Good. Do Good!
