#NGOFacts Campaign Shares Stories, Factoids from Nonprofits
The hashtag #NGOFacts encourages nonprofit organizations and charities to increase awareness by sharing interesting statistics, facts and success stories about global development. The campaign was featured by The Guardian, which has a global development professionals area online. This is a great opportunity to share your work and it doesn’t involve writing a long report, or even something as long as a news release. Just find a great photo, add a factoid (under 140 characters), and use the hashtag #NGOFacts. Statistics, facts and success stories are all great suggestions for sharing (and try to include a photo if you can).
Many of the tweets are interesting and get attention:
