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 23rd August 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.
As we continue to share with you all of the fantastic entries we’ve had so far, today’s offering comes from Alex. It seems that whatever Alex lacks in basketball skills, she certainly makes up for in choreography skills. Her video features The Bury Bombers Wheelchair Club showing off their skills on the court and also giving Alex’s text code exposure with a great routine.
You can check out the video below and if you want to increase Alex’s chance of getting a £500 donation to her fundraising page for The Arthrogryposis Group, share it with your friends and family. Also, if you’d like to show Alex your support, you can text LEXY91 £5 (or any amount up to £10) to 70070 or check out her page at http://www.justgiving.com/alex-mccourt1
My name is Alex and I’m a student at Keele, as well as a lifeguard and bartender.
I am doing a sponsored swim to raise money for The Arthrogryposis Group, a charity which helps individuals with Arthrogryposis, like my boyfriend. He plays wheelchair basketball, which is more fun to watch than someone swimming up and down, hence my decision to base my video on this sport rather than swimming!
The video itself took us an hour to shoot and an hour to edit and I am mostly using social networks, predominately Facebook and Twitter to promote it.
I have been impressed by the ease of fundraising with the JustGiving resources. Of course the task has been challenging, and JustGiving has made it that little bit easier. Creating the video has been really fun and is a great way to promote what I’m doing, with the added bonus of a possibility of winning a £500 donation. I’ve been involved in lots of fundraising over the years and JustGiving makes it so much easier!!
Fancy showing off your camera skills? Do you have a cool way of promoting your JustTextGiving code? There’s still time to enter. You could win an extra £500 for your charity!
The competition is open until Tuesday 23rd August. Click here to find out exactly how to enter.
