Well, you'd share a chance to win the new MacBook wouldn't you?

Ah well, my philanthropy-based design for the new £ coin didn't win the £10,000 competition. Thank you to everyone who supported my idea.

How do you convey the significance of climate change and invite involvement? Stats alone won't work for everyone, so humour is worth a go. #wwf #earthhour #pandas

Good example of a charity annual report in video format (2 min 39s). Created in Powerpoint and using royalty-free music. It has also been published as an infographic. HT +Kivi Leroux Miller

I'll be chairing this Hangout next week. Do submit your questions via Twitter beforehand, and you can vote yes or no via Twitter too. #icebucketchallenge   #nomakeupselfie  
 
In mid-2014 the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral, raising more than £100m for the ALS Association and other organisations around the world, and resulting in more than 2.4 million tagged videos circulating on Facebook. Elsewhere, other social media campaigns have had similar success – the No Make-up Selfie raising £8m for Cancer Research UK in just one week being one such example.   
A desire to capitalise on the same success has seen other charities attempting to start their own campaigns in the hope that they too go viral and raise large sums of money for their causes. SmearforSmear from Jo’s Trust and WakeUpCall from Unicef are among those that have tried to rouse public support and encourage people to dig deep for good causes.

Join the debate to explore the pros and cons of viral campaigns and hear some useful insight into how they work.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by The Resource Alliance London. The live video broadcast will begin soon.
