In an increasingly digital world, donating to charity has never been easier, but we’re always looking for ways to keep simplifying the process. Well now a new social platform has found the latest solution.

The #Donate service has been set up by retail technology company, #Pay, and GOOD Agency, enabling charities to receive money directly from tweets and retweets on Twitter.

Charities can create a fixed amount hashtag, or a flexible one that allows the donor to choose how much they want to give.

Now that the better weather is here, we’re sure you’ll have lots of flourishing green spaces in your communities that you’re just itching to visit over the weekends - that’s why Community How To is getting behind the For The Love Of… our communities campaign, run by our friends over at The Big Lunch.

You may have seen the digital tool, Streetclub - a social network that serves a particular post code area, making it more local and community-based. After receiving lots of feedback asking for them to join up with the neighbourly website StreetBank, they’ve decided to do just that.

The Big Lunch is a brilliant idea from the Eden Project. It's aim is to bring communities together across the whole of the UK to have food, socialise and have some fun! Fancy getting involved?

They offer many expert services including how to identify funding opportunities, how to create a strategy to generate income and how to write bids and proposals.
