In celebration of our new name and our commitment to children, we told the Twitter community for every 200 followers @ChildFund receives, agricultural gifts would be given to families and children in The Gambia, Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia from our Gifts of Love and Hope catalog.
We’re proud to say it’s only been 10 days since the campaign launch and we’ve already given seven gifts! Thank you to our 1,500-plus followers for making this happen.
Additionally, we’d like to thank the following blogs for joining us in the fight to help underprivileged children across the globe:
• Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can use Social Media
• Colin’s Blog
• Giving in a digital world
• The Raiser’s Razor
• ServeNext.org Blog
• Next Communications
• A. Fine Blog
• Alex De Carvalho
• Sue Anne Reed
We have seven more days – this campaign will end July 27 – to give children and their families more gifts. Encourage your friends to make a difference by following @ChildFund and tell them the more the followers, the more gifts these children and families receive. Let them know how they can be instrumental in helping a school in The Gambia, or a family farm in Zambia receive a goat, among other things. Join us in our commitment to children’s welfare by following us @ChildFund.
Once the campaign ends, we’ll send the gifts to the communities. We’re also sending cameras so we can share firsthand how these gifts make a difference in the lives of the individuals and the community. We want you to know that your efforts are leading to the well-being of the world.
Follow us on Twitter and you can make the difference in the lives of children. Really. It’s that simple.
To celebrate our new name and our commitment to children, we’re giving agriculture gifts from our Gifts of Love and Hope catalog to children and families for every 200 Twitter followers we receive.
These efforts will directly benefit children in The Gambia, Zambia, Kenya and Ethiopia. There is no cap on followers, and the offer will continue through July 27. Each country has different needs so the gifts vary:
As part of the effort, ChildFund International is sending Flip video cameras to program offices in each of the four countries to report back. We’ll share the recipients’ stories and photos with you. We want to share how your efforts and these items benefit children and their communities. It is also a commitment not to simply promote, but to continue an accountable dialog with our supporters.
So come follow us. Tell your friends. Tell your friends’ friends. By simply following @ChildFund we can all make a difference in a child’s life.
