You Have 24 Hours: How Will You #TurnYourTuesday?

Hello Community!

We are under two weeks away from #GivingTuesday 2018! Who else can believe it? Turn Your Tuesday with Giving Tuesday

That means I have things to share in the Community to support your efforts. Let’s dive in and make the most of those 24 hours!

First, check out the #GivingTuesday Community where you can find the following:
  • Resources, blogs, and discussions to help you get the most out of those 24 hours.
  • Polls! We want to hear from you about your #GivingTuesday experience and plans.
  • Social wall where you can see tweets throughout the day.
  • We’re here to cheer you on! Your Community Managers will post discussions and polls to keep the excitement going. You’ll find these right on the #GivingTuesday Community.
Second, check out the amazing resources that Blackbaud has put together to help you get the most out of your 24 hours and truly #TurnYourTuesday.

The #GivingTuesday hub is filled with easy to use resources such as:
  • Social media kit
  • Podcasts
  • Webinars
  • Infographics
  • ...and more.
Alright, favorite Community! Time for a mini contest because I’m excited to see what you’re doing for #GivingTuesday.

Go to the #GivingTuesday Community and take the poll on the homepage (hint: it’s on the right-hand side). Then comment below that you’ve taken the poll and share your plans! Added bonus if you can tell me how many times I mention #GivingTuesday in this post.

I'm going with 8 #GivingTuesday mentions and I took the poll.  Every Tuesday since Halloween we've been posting, emailing, and sending videos out into the world.  We're super excited for it.

It's a huge day for us. Last year we raised tens of thousands (we're a $3M organization) and our board did a 2:1 match. So, it's big! We're actually starting today and asking people to give between now and Nov 27 and will match all gifts made in that time period. We're also going bigger on socials, explicitly asking donors to tag six friends on socials and asking them to give. Fingers crossed that it makes for an even bigger giving day. Good luck, all!!

Voted! Yes, plan to send out another e-blast (sent one out a few weeks ago) and social media presence too. I'm trying to take a more personal approach and share stories about individuals in my campaign. I see 8 Giving Tuesday references as well.  :)
