- Invited the founders of Black Dog Tribe and PiggyBankKids, Ruby Wax and Sarah Brown, to speak at BritMums Live
Feedback from bloggers tells us that one of the reasons people struggle to support good causes via their blog is that they feel overwhelmed by the numbers of charities out there. What sort of person do you want to see helped most? Would a local, national or international charity be best? Is there a charity that fits in with your particular interests?
Wouldn’t it be great if you as a blogger could give BritMums a few details about yourself and we could match you with those charities that most fit with you and your blog? Guess what? BritMums has listened and has launched a charity matching service for bloggers.
If you complete a simple and quick questionnaire, BritMums will send you the details of a few good causes that fit in with the time and space you have available and your particular interests. That should make it far easier for you to choose who you want to help.
You can complete the questionnaire now and choose if and how you want to get involved further. You are not making any firm commitment by finding out which charities might suit you best.
Of course, if you do get involved with a charity and blog about them, BritMums will do all it can to spread the word about your efforts via our social networks and on the BritMums blog.
So if you are interested in blogging for the greater good, complete and return the survey and see where the journey takes you.
BritMums are working on a few plans for the future around working with charities. Watch this space and if you have any ideas of how you would like to see Charity Connections – Blogging It Forward develop, do email email@example.com. We are always keen to learn from our members and of course from charities themselves.
