C'mon Get Happy: Facebook Is Doing Some Good In the World!

 Have your Facebook friends been hitting you up for cash lately by creating "birthday fundraisers" for their favorite charities? Facebook added a feature about a year ago that lets you ask for donations in lieu of presents (though, realistically, most of us were not buying gifts for Facebook friends). 

 Some people find the solicitations annoying--they come multiple times a week if you've got a lot of friends on there.

But the good news is they are actually doing a lot of good.

 A woman named Asha Sharma heads up Facebook's "Social Good" initiative.  And on Wednesday, she revealed that all those fundraisers brought in $300 MILLION for charity in their first year.

 The charities that have gotten the most money so far include St. Jude's Children's Hospital . . . the Alzheimer's Association . . . the American Cancer Society . . . No Kid Hungry . . . and the ASPCA.
