March Campaigns we love

March Campaigns Blog

We’re always amazed by the Campaign pages our charity partners create. Here are some of the Campaigns we loved in March:

United in Laughter

United in Laughter Campaign Page The Flying Seagull’s United in Laughter project is raising funds to send their clown and play specialists to Turkey on 1st April to visit children living in refugee camps. As the story on their Campaign Page says: “Europe has been showing some very ugly faces recently, and it’s time that we replace them with broad smiles and red noses.” The clown and specialists are trained in working with children faced with trauma and their shows and workshops are all designed around building children’s confidence. To help support their Campaign, one of their supporters, Tom, took on a ‘Bear Grylls Survival Challenge’ raising over £450 to help support the project. We’ve found that on average, Campaign Pages with active fundraising pages raise more than double Campaigns Pages without the fundraising option enabled. So make sure you enable the feature on your Campaign Pages and encourage your supporters to start fundraising. By sharing their fundraising story, people fundraising for your cause can help you get even more supporters for your Campaign, as they’ll spread awareness of your appeal AND raise money.
