Last month, we launched our JustTextGiving video competition asking you to send us a video of innovative and fun ways to fundraise with your JustTextGiving code. The video with the most views by Tuesday 23rdAugust gets a whopping £500 donation to their page! Plus, two runners up (who will be decided by a panel of judges) will each get a £200 donation.
We’ve had some fantastic entries so far with some great ideas of how you can share your text code – so much so that we’ve decided to bring you a round-up of all of the videos. Today sees the turn of Donna, who, like yesterday, proves a dose of humour with a little added cheekiness can go a long way when you’re fundraising.
Check out her entry below and hear what Donna has to say about her inspiration. If you like her video, pass it on to your friends and family and improve Donna’s chances of getting a £500 donation to her fundraising page for The Equal People Theatre Company. And if you feel compelled to donate, text MUSH50 £1 TO 70070 or visit her fundraising page at http://www.justgiving.com/across-the-arctic.
My name is Donna Adams and I work as a funeral director.
I’m not sure where the idea for the video came from, I just wanted something eye catching and memorable. I thought walking round local places with the sign would strike curiosity in those that saw it, and making it look like I was naked would add humour.
We made the video in a few hours and then it took another few to edit it. Luckily I had the help of a few girls from the theatre company I am raising money for. They did all the filming.
We are promoting the video on Facebook and Twitter, it has also been in a local paper: http://tiny.cc/66laf
Next year I will be trekking across the Arctic Circle on a dog sled to raise money for The Mushroom Theatre Company, and although I’m looking forward to the dog sledding, the main thing I am anxious about is raising the money that this excellent charity needs.
Have a great idea of how to share your text code? Feel inspired to get behind the camera? Then why not enter too? It could mean an extra £500 for your charity!
The competition is open until Tuesday 23rd August. Click here to find out exactly how to enter.
