A few scattered Tweets or Facebook posts can get lost in the noise of social media so we have decided to launch our first ever Thunderclap to coincide with #GivingTuesday on 28th November 2017!
What is a Thunderclap?
It’s a website that allows people to pledge to post a Tweet or Facebook message all on the same day at the same time – it’s like an online flash mob!
How can you get involved?
Visit our Thunderclap page and click one or more of the buttons to enable us to post this one time message to your Facebook and/or Twitter:
How else can you help?
To enable our Thunderclap to go out, we have a target of a minimum of 100 supporters. Encourage your Facebook friends and Twitter followers to sign up too! Once you have signed it up, the website will give you the option to spread the word with an automated post or you can customise it to make it more personal to you and your friends or followers!
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fuelled by the power of social media and collaboration where the world is encouraged to give back by making donations, volunteering their time and using their voice to spread the word of their favourite charities.
The Big Issue Foundation hopes to use the platform of #GivingTuesday to raise awareness and to continue their work to help end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors by connecting every vendor to the support and personal solutions that enable them to rebuild their lives.
