Here are 6 great people who’ve made selfless contributions to great causes. On behalf of humanity, I’d like to thank:

Ted Murphy in Cereal Bathtub

Ted Murphy (@tedmurphy on Twitter) is one crazy CEO! Founder of IZEA and MindComet, Ted likes to take things to a special place when helping those in need.

His latest promotion is a contest where someone will win 52 boxes of cereal…but if he gets over 500 unique comments on his post he’s pledged to donate 52 more boxes to a local family in need. Go Ted!

Not surprisingly, many of the commenters have pledged to donate their cereal if they win. Check the video of Ted in his bathtub of cereal and be sure to comment on this post to help those in need!

Buzz Bishop & World Diabetes Day

Buzz Bishop is a radio/blog personality on Vancouver’s 95Crave, writer for 24 Hours and all-around broadcaster of good vibes.

He’s constantly using his reach and popularity to spread the word about things like World Diabetes Day and The United Way.

A truly good person, Buzz wants to make the world better, for all of us to enjoy. If you do nothing else, follow him on Twitter and bug him about radio prizes (he just LOVES people who LOVE to get prizes)!.

Jacob Cass for Blog Action Day Charity

Jacob Cass is a talented and helpful young graphic designer from Australia. He’s currently celebrating his blog’s 1st birthday and giving over $11,000 worth of prizes to 67 lucky people in the name of charity.

He’s chosen Blog Action Day’s Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria as his cause this year, and has already helped get the word out to thousands of people, through the donations and publicizing through blogs and Twitter. Get in on the donating now and pass it along to your friends!

Mark Hayward and Train for Humanity

Mark Hayward served in the Peace Corps and now runs a guesthouse in Culebra with his partner Terrie. He blogs inspiration all day long at MyTropicalEscape and Zen Habits and still finds time to co-create a huge project called Train for Humanity.

Their concept: getting fit + social media + blogging = social good.

Read more about the creation of their non-profit organization for Darfur Peace & Development and some of the lessons he’s learned so far.

Catch Mark on Twitter and say hello (he’s friendly)!

Graham Smith and SoulTweet

Graham Smith is a UK logo designer with over 20 years experience. Graham uses social media to help bring awareness to good people, places and things online.

He recently started a soulful promotion of Twitter people at SoulTweet.

John Chow and the United Gospel Mission

John Chow is a self-made millionaire, one of the original ‘make money’ bloggers and a generous philanthropist. Making over $35k a month on his blog, John finds plenty of ways to spread the wealth.

He recently helped Tanya Davis in her Team Diabetes Disney World fundraising, firing off the extra $1300 she needed to top up her $4500 goal to the finish line!

Longtime donor and promoter of Union Gospel Mission (a shelter on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, BC), John recently committed a $5000 cheque he got in the mail to helping UGM. He’s calling on you to help match his donation and feed thousands of hungry people for the holidays.
