Did you know that there are less than sixty days left until #GivingTuesday? That’s hard to believe, isn’t it? Don’t you worry, this year’s big day is 11/28 and we’re getting ready!
We’re doing it again! This time we need a little bit more time to round things up. That means we have to start a little earlier.
We know that it will be hard to plan for what you might need two months ahead but you’ve got all of October to do it. Then we’re going mention your non-profit near and far during the month of November.
How it worked
Some organizations requested money. Others created their own flyers with all kinds of ways to give. Many non-profits requested a specific need like repair work, appliances, or even volunteer/board service. All of those needs were exactly what we were looking for.
Then we also created a blog post with a roundup of all needs by region. Which means that your name showed up AGAIN on Twitter and boosted on Facebook? Check it out: Middle Peninsula, Northern Neck, and Williamsburg. We only had one entry in Westhampton so you won’t see a blog post there. That ad just ran a little longer. We anticipate a post this year for that region as well.
Aren’t you excited? Great! This is your invitation and you have until midnight 10/27 to get involved! We are unable to take any requests after this time so please be sure to put it on the calendar!
Here’s what we need
Take a little time to consider your needs. You may even want to check with your staff and volunteers to hear their suggestions. Once you’ve decided on the deal come back and complete this form. This will ensure that we have all the information we need to make your ad successful!
Also, we’re going to need an image to go along with your posts. Some images do better than others. So, Facebook requires that the image is horizontal and that it cannot have more than 20% text in the total image. If this confuses you, skip it and send us an image without any text at all. We know you’ll need some more time for the shot, so when you get it together, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
