Sector launches social media campaign asking charities to celebrate supporters
Charity umbrella bodies have launched a social media campaign urging charities to share bitesize snippets highlighting the difference they have made and thank supporters for making it happen.
NCVO, CharityComms, Small Charities Coalition, FSI, the Institute of Fundrasing and Acevo are urging charities to use the hastag #YouMadeItHappen on 19 November to thank supporters and raise awareness of the impact charities make.
In an email to members, Aidan Warner, senior external relations officer at NCVO, said: “We know thousands of charities around the country make a real difference every day. And we know that between us the impact we have on the country and the world is massive.
“We want to remind people of everything that’s great about charities, and show them we’re very grateful for their support.”
Suggested examples are:
- This year, we helped over 300 homeless people in Manchester find permanent accommodation. We couldn’t have done it without your support #YouMadeItHappen
- Thanks to your support, we re-planted 200 acres of forest last year #YouMadeItHappen
- Eve’s village now has access to safe drinking water because of your donations #YouMadeItHappen
