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

  **Sign Up for Easyfundraising:**

Easyfundraising is a fantastic initiative that allows you to support your chosen charity while shopping online. When you sign up for Easyfundraising, a percentage of your online purchases is donated to your selected charity at no extra cost to you. It’s a simple and effortless way to make a difference. If you are still making the most of online sales this Cyber Monday, consider registering for Easyfundraising and select ‘Doorstep Grimsby’ to receive your donations. Every purchase you make helps us support young people experiencing homelessness.  

  **Request our Fundraising Pack**

We’re on the hunt for volunteer fundraisers. Could this be you? We’re developing our fundraising materials so why not signup to be the first ones to receive the pack? Simply email fundraising@mydoorstep.org.uk and ask for more information!  

We can break away from the consumerism of Black Friday and use the digital space to create positive change. Engaging with charities in a cyber way—through social media, newsletters, fundraising and virtual volunteering— we can turn Cyber Monday into a day of giving and support for the organisations in your local communities that are doing good work.
