Doing Good Online: How Cyber Monday Helps Charities You Care About
Black Friday messaging can really grind you down- you might be left feeling that the online spaces you visit have been reduced to nothing more than consumerism. That’s why charities like Doorstep are redefining ‘Cyber Monday’ so that you can make a difference in a digital way.
Cyber Monday is the name given to the Monday immediately following Black Friday weekend sales. Giving this day a name might not make any difference to your online habits, but we want to show you how you can use it to support good causes like Doorstep.
**Follow, Share, and Like on Social Media:**
Social media platforms are powerful tools for raising awareness and connecting with a wider audience. Many charities use platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and X (Twitter) to share their missions, success stories, and ongoing projects. By simply following, sharing, and liking posts, you expand the potential reach of message and the increase the chances of reaching supporters.
**Subscribe to Newsletters:**
Newsletters are a great way to stay updated on a charity’s activities, achievements, and upcoming events. By subscribing to their newsletters, you not only show your support but also gain insights into their work and impact. You can sign up to our newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/h8WHUj
