Scott Monty - Strategic Communications & Leadership Advisor

Here's a cause you can get behind, and all you need is an eBay account. As I've been the recipient of my community's generosity before, I like to promote and participate in other similar efforts whenever possible. It comes down to the old phrase, "In order to have a friend, you need to be a friend."

My friend Dave Delaney, who you can find on Twitter as @davedelaney or on his blog Dave Made That and his podcast Two Boobs and a Baby +, recently finished up a stint at Emma. But as fate would have it, a month later, they've come calling for their computer, which Dave thought was part of his severance package.

That's not good news in any social media consultant's world, especially when it's a Macbook Pro. Dave is scrambling to put together some funds to make the new purchase, but obviously he wasn't prepared for it (not to mention that the "baby +" part of the equation means other priorities). So, he's put his brains and creativity to use and come up with a way for the community to help him out.

He's got an eBay auction running where you can bid on the magic card used in his 8,000th tweet video (seen below). This is the perfect chance to help out a guy who has my full endorsement. Head on over and throw in a bid and let's see if we can get Dave up toward his goal!
