Support Your Favorite Nonprofit Through Social Media
When it comes to fighting child poverty, there are
few things more important than raising awareness. ChildFund relies on the
generous contributions of supporters to continue helping children around the
world. In addition to the financial support our sponsors and donors provide, we
also need you to help spread the word to your circle of friends and loved ones
about the work we do. One simple way you can do this is by sharing content from
ChildFund on your social media networks.
Changing the Face of Giving
In the past, there were fewer ways to promote good causes and the work of
nonprofits. Supporters could spread the word by telling friends about their
passion for helping others in person, by letter or on the phone, but large-scale
sharing and promotion was difficult for the average person. The advent of social
media makes it easier for anyone to make their feelings known to hundreds or
even thousands of people. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have become an
instrumental part of raising awareness of the fight against child poverty. If
you're already supporting our work, consider taking your generosity a step
further by sharing ChildFund's mission with your friends on social media.
Platforms like Facebook and Twitter have also revolutionized how people
support the work of nonprofits. Individual donations received through social
media accounted for around one-third of fundraising strategies in 2012, and the
average social media donation has increased from $38 in 2010 to $59 last year.
If you want to help us spread the word about the work we are doing, you can
follow us on Twitter, stay up to date with our work on Facebook, check out what our chief executive officer Anne
Goddard is saying on Tumblr and see what we're sharing on Pinterest.
Social media has become an integral part of many
users' internet experience. As a result, it has never been easier to follow the
work of your favorite nonprofits and spread the word about how these groups are
making a difference around the world.
Even if you can't afford to make a
donation or sponsor a child at the moment, sharing social content helps
ChildFund to reach a wider audience and potentially make an even greater impact
in the lives of children around the world. Whether you're already supporting
ChildFund or plan to do so in the future, sharing our social content is just
another way you can help us make the world a better place for children
