Small Charity Week (15th-20th June) has launched a social media campaign for small charities across the UK to raise their profile and fundraise.
The campaign calls upon small charities to ask their supporters to state why they love them on Twitter and Facebook during 15th-21st June using #ILoveSmallCharities. The charities that receive the most messages of support in this time period on Facebook and Twitter will each win a £200 cash prize from the Foundation for Social Improvement (FSI).
Pauline Broomhead, CEO of the FSI said: “Small charities make up 97% of the sector and yet their work is often overlooked. This campaign is much more than just an opportunity to gain a donation from the FSI. It is a chance for small charities to engage with the public and get the attention they deserve for their fantastic work. Their supporters can also shout about why they love supporting a small charity.
“This will be the third year we have run this competition and each time it has grown to support more small charities to engage with current and new supporters and we hope this will be the biggest event yet with small charities taking over social media”.
Participants must be from charities with a turnover under £1.5 million. All rules and materials are available from the Small Charity Week website.
