some inspiring ways Charities use Social Media

With Charities starting to realise the strength of talking to all of us through Social Media, to give direct donations, buy gifts that give or perhaps forwarding petitions, I wanted to share some of the great stuff that Social Media is doing for the Charity Sector too.

I really like the You Tube – 4 Awesome, where anyone can place a video of their Charity and the best videos win a £1000.00 for their cause, nice idea!

Search for Good, use this as your dedicated search engine and Yahoo gives for you.

By offering a DIY Fundraising page, Non Profits are making it easier for supporters to become rainmakers (this is an example of a water charity).

A website that allows you to tell your story, lets face it, always a very powerful way to garner support for your cause.

Glenda Watson Hyatt leading a drive for the a Christmas dinner fundraiser. You can chip in by “buying Glenda a cup of coffee” via PayPal it will cost you £3.25

What are you doing as a charity that’s getting some great support.
