The Believe Ticket Project is a non-profit organization, created on July 9th, 2012 by 5 teenage girls. The purpose was give away tickets to less fortunate fans who could not afford to go to Justin Bieber's Believe Tour 2012-2013. In the first year, we gave away 105 tickets and raised over $5,500 all through social media campaigns and online promotion. As Justin Bieber's tour came to an end, we came to the decision that we never want to stop giving back and changing lives, because starting this project has impacted us so much more than we expected. As of 2014 the Believe Ticket Project was incorporated and now serves to help fans of all artists signed to the Scooter Braun Projects label through the power of social media. Our organization is the perfect example of how the positive impact social media can have when everyone comes together give back. Our charity is by the fans, for the fans.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Help others. We wish people knew what kind of an opportunity social media presents. It's an chance to connect with others & make a difference
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. Sometimes less, is more.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's just some website. It's so much more than that. It's a way to connect with people all over the globe and be heard.
Why'd you start tweeting?
We started tweeting to spread the word about our project. To share it with as many people as possible, to help others and get people involved
How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?
The Believe Ticket Project was founded, born really, on Twitter. It all started with a tweet. Millions of users use Twitter to express themselves and, after being on Twitter for over 5 years, we began to notice a need in the community of Justin Bieber fans. Once the idea was born, getting it out there was the easy part. Our project uses the power of audience impact and our followers to raise money and awareness. In less than 2 years we've accumulated over 30k followers and have trended worldwide on Twitter more times than you could fit in a tweet. We are unique because our origination relies on Twitter to keep us connected with our supporters, and uses Tumblr to receive stories and ticket request from fans in need. We know the impact that the internet has, and with positive motives to help others, there isn't anything that cannot be accomplished via social media.
