  • 29 Ideas for #GivingTuesday 2016 you haven’t thought of
    Monday Oct 10, 2016

    I recently attended an event at Whole Whale focused on #GivingTuesday ideas and they know their stuff! We heard from communicators at New York Cares, DonorsChoose.org, and more about how they're approaching #GivingTuesday and what's been successful for their organizations in the past. This article shares similar success stories and insider tips--it's a perfect resource to get your organization's creative juices flowing before November 29th. 

    -Laura Fisher

    This article was originally published on Wholewhale.comWhole Whale is a digital agency that uses data and technology to help nonprofits make an impact. 

    We hope you are participating in #GivingTuesday 2016 as the nonprofit sector tries to build a herd mentality in the same way that online retailers built up Cyber Monday. What’s more, the sector is trying to build a new unselfish social habit, which means it will take more nonprofit participation to compete with the existing holiday corporate messaging. This past year, Cyber Monday revenue grew 16%, topping $3 billion in sales (Adobe Digital Index 2015). In 2015, Giving Tuesday grew by 145% to a record total of $116.7 million in donations. This year Whole Whale analysts predict that #GivingTuesday will raise over $250 million, read more about this and other facts about #GivingTuesday).

    There are tons of #GivingTuesday guides, playbooks, toolkits, examples and stories so we decided to try to summarize some of the best ideas as well as add our own. Enjoy!

    1. Join #GivingTuesday. The rest of these tips don’t really make sense if you aren’t participating… List yourself on GivingTuesday.org/join
    2. Draft a quarterback. Have an internal point person executing the plan and creating wrap up analysis with learnings for next year (this doesn’t have to be your classic fundraising person either). Have them recruit a team of volunteers/super supporters from your network. Pro-tip: give this group a title like #GivingTuesday Advisors.
    3. Beat those pesky giving lines #GivingMonday. Look, if the generous profiteers at Kmart can start Black Friday at 6am on ThanksGiving – you can ‘open your doors’ early and count donations for your campaign starting Monday (or earlier). Feel free to use this joke when you do it.
    4. Use social norms and price anchoring. The average donation amount in 2013 was $140 (Blackbaud). Make this subtly known on your donation form options and copy. Yes, we know averages are wildly misleading – but it’s for a great cause. Geek out on more influence tactics
    5. Focus on new donor cultivation while using it as an opportunity to rally existing supporters to ‘friend raise’ and pull in their friends by donating themselves.
    6. A message from your constituents. Plan a Youtube video with recorded “I gave because” from your super supporters – with donate button. Release it on Monday and throw some ads behind it. Here is a great one the Michael J. Fox Foundation created from supporter letters.
    7. Host a live YouTube ‘telethon’, announce new donors and interact with social media interactions. Pro tip: register for YouTube.com/nonprofit and make sure you have a strong internet connection.
    8. Put your CEO in a dunk tank. Well it doesn’t have to be a dunk tank, but you get it. This idea is inspired by our friends at DoSomething.org who put their CEO, Nancy Lublin and COO, Aria Finger in a dunk tank and only dunked them if they hit a million for their annual event. We were there, it was awesome. Pro-tip: combine this with #7.
    9. Karma. Find a cause you care about and donate to it on #GivingTuesday. Never hurts to have (good) karma on your side.
    10. Schedule it. Schedule out your giving reminders across all major platforms using HooteSuite, Facebook scheduled posts, and your email scheduler. Try to analyze peak times your followers are active – we like FollowerWonk for analyzing followers on Twitter.
    11. Ink your supporters. Create temporary hand tattoos with your  {logo} + #GivingTuesday or #Unselfie. Send these to volunteers ahead of time, ask them to ask staff during lunch to collect. These can also be used as incentives for early giving or participation. Here are the cheapest ones we found – 1000 for $100
    12. Reputation matters. New volunteers will be evaluating new nonprofits based on rating sites. Check to make sure you are updated in places that matter: Guidestar.com, CharityNavigator.com, GreatNonprofits.org, Wikipedia.org.
    13. Time sucks suck… Participate, but don’t let this take too much time! Time is money, manage expectations on returns for your work.
    14. Start early. Trends for Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday show people gearing up in August/September.
    15. Blitz your message! Have super supporters schedule tweets that say “I gave to @{YourCharity} #GivingTuesday” for December 2nd, 2014. ThunderClap is a great tool for this.
    16. Better together– don’t worry about crowded messaging, we are increasing the size of the pie, which means your slice will be larger. Think about how you can collaborate with other orgs in your cause area. Donation averages per charity involved in 2012 & 2013 stayed relatively even as total charities involved increased by 250%.
    17. Matching Gifts are to #GivingTuesday as deals are to #CyberMonday.  Create urgency by creating a 24-48 hour period where donations will be matched. Use Double the Donation’s #GivingTuesday Matching Gift Pages for free.
    18. Don’t cannibalize your holiday messaging. This is just the start of the race – not the final sprint. Think about positioning this as participating in a social movement to combat the shitty commercialism that has taken over one of best excuses to eat turkey with in-laws.
    19. TEST YOUR DAMN DONATE PAGE. This should happen well before #GivingTuesday. We have had increases of 20% and higher for every page we have A/B Tested for our Whole Whale clients.
    20. First Tuesday giving. Offer an option for donors to repeat their donations on the first Tuesday of every month.
    21. Be a part of the conversation. Be hyperactive on social and consider running ads in the afternoon 1-4pm when donation activity peaked on #GivingTuesday in 2013 (Blackbaud).
    22. Prepare a landing page. Promote your Giving Tuesday campaign on your site’s homepage, and across subpages so that all visitors will know about it. Create a focused giving page just for #GivingTuesday and promote that exact page, don’t make people click to find your donate button please.
    23. Progress meter! Set a donation goal and show users the progress towards that amount. Pro-tip: feel free to raise the goal if donations start pouring in and try to seed early donations to get started. We like IndieGoGo and Tilt, but you can also fake this functionality by manually updating an image on your site as you hit milestones.
    24. Say thanks! Show a feed of Twitter users who have donated and try to thank each one that donates with #GivingTuesday.
    25. Make donations tangible. Will the money go toward a new program or needed equipment? Giving transparency can help your story when getting ‘fence-sitters’ to convert. Lakeside Chautauqua managed to raise $105k by focusing on a local restoration project in their community.
    26. Be #Unselfie (ish). Encourage your members to share their #unselfie(s) with you on Twitter, FB, and Instagram. Try to highlight the best stories – Once again, The Michael J. Fox Foundation did this very well in 2013.
    27. The best ideas are not in the room. Look to your supporters for great fundraising stories that you can bring national attention to.  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation did this well by finding a 10 year-old who was selling barrettes to raise money to help her friend struggling with the disease.
    28. Don’t ignore corporate giving! Companies are just like people (#HobbyLobby) and may have employee giving programs you can tap into or find matching gifts through. America’s Charities is a leader in running workplace giving campaigns and has some great tips for #GivingTuesday corporate giving.
    29. Did it work? Create a December donation forecast, then measure total donations for December and on #GivingTuesday. Ask the question: Did we cannibalize giving, redistribute to Tuesday, or increase it?

  • Justin Bieber got a new tattoo to commemorate the good dude he hopes to be in 50 years
    By Tricia Gilbride - Friday Jun 16, 2017

    Justin Bieber never likes to admit when he's wrong, but when he does, he gets a tattoo and writes a song.

    The new ink reads "Better at 70" (NOT "Better A+ 70") right above his knee and the phrase also shows up in the chorus of his new song, a heartfelt piano ditty. Actually, those are the only lyrics. 

    "I look back at a lot of things in my life, mistakes, insecurities, and although I have felt I've wasted a lot of time it also makes me want to be better faster and longer!" writes Bieber in the Instagram caption. "For me personally I want to work everyday to be BETTER AT 70."
