We enjoy using Twitter to not only provide quick updates on Humanety happenings but to also follow some of our favorite people. Last week, I noticed a few tweets and retweets from folks about the Tom Merritt and Molly Wood auction for Kiva. One of these caught my attention in particular: the poster -- @albert_steed -- said, "Chance to talk with host of @Buzzoutloud by donating to charity. http://humanety.com/"

What was particularly remarkable about this tweet is that Albert had placed the high bid on the auction just a few minutes prior. So, he was encouraging people to bid on an auction that he was positioned to win. When I asked Albert about this, he responded: "I was just trying to help out". So, while Albert truly wanted the chance to meet Tom and Molly, he was more concerned with Kiva getting the most support possible from the auction.

I think that is a wonderfully selfless gesture by Albert. I'm thrilled that he did go on to win the auction as I am looking forward to connecting these three truly generous people.

You can follow Molly on Twitter at @MollyWood and Tom at @acedtect.

Mike Aronson, our CCO, and I just spent a few days at Macworld.  We were able to meet up with some of our past and future Humanetarians to thank them for their kind support of charity.  They really are great people -- Scott Bourne, Alex Lindsay, John C. Dvorak, Veronica Belmont and a few people we haven't announced yet -- and it was great to get the chance to know them a little better.  (Mike is a Cal Alum, and he and John share very similar views on the state of the Bears.)

It was a particular treat to hang with Geoff Smith.  Geoff was our first Humanetarian and it's hard to imagine finding a human being with a bigger heart.  He's funny, talented, humble and a giving person.  He's going to offer another personal concert soon.  Please follow us on twitter (we're @Humanety) or friend us up on facebook if you'd like to be notified when his next auction goes live.  You can check out his music at http://www.thegeoffsmith.com
