Using Social Media for Good
Content creator Jimmy Darts has a gift for mission-driven social media impact work, as evidenced by his more than 17M followers across platforms. Combining his passion for creating content with his love of people, Jimmy has created a unique model for how any organization can find their niche, hone their voice, and inspire their audience to connect with compassion. Jimmy offers both practical strategies as well as philanthropic insights that resonate with groups of every kind.
Jimmy always felt drawn to a hospitality mindset and a love of people. This led to a desire to hear people's stories and understand the value of listening. While traveling the world after high school, he fell in love with serving others. Combining his lifelong passion for creating videos, he merged the two together to encourage others to walk in kindness. Today, he partners with companies to showcase their generosity and use the power of social media to inspire all generations to live selflessly across the street and around the world. His goal is to harness social media for good in a unique way to lift others up through encouragement in online and in-person communities - and have a bit of fun doing it.
