Last month we told you about the latest big digital inclusion campaign from Tinder Foundation.

Be Online will run from 23 February to 8 March 2015 and all you have to do is hold an event within your community that’ll inspire people to discover the possibilities that open up when you’re online.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year - Christmas! It’s a time for being generous; a time for giving; a time for thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves.

Just the other week we celebrated Giving Tuesday and charity donations across the globe increased by 270% compared with the same day last year!

But what if you’re too busy to do any fundraising? What if you’ve got too much Christmas shopping to do? Well we have the answer to your problem: let us introduce you to easyfundraising!

Registration is now open for the next big digital inclusion campaign from Tinder Foundation

Following on from the success of Get Online Week, Be Online will be taking place from 23 February to 8 March 2015.

The three key themes in the campaign are:

  • Health skills

  • Employment skills

  • The skills to enjoy life online

Applications are now open for the next round of community developers to improve their skills and gain a new qualification in the process.

The Level Three Award in Community Development starts on Thursday 15th January and is perfect for anyone working directly or indirectly in community development who is looking to take their skills to the next level.

If you are a local charity or community group looking to drum up some support or recruit some volunteers then you might have had a look at the digital tool, LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is a social media platform where you can connect with the people you do business with and share your company updates through direct messages, or status updates. You can follow company pages to receive their news in your news feed, or engage in discussions with LinkedIn groups.

But how can you, as a charity or community group, make the most out of LinkedIn?


On Tuesday 2nd December 2014 everyone around the world will come together for an international day known as Giving Tuesday.

For just one day during the busy holiday shopping season people, charities and businesses will be encouraged to give their time, money or their voice to help a good cause and show everyone why it is good to give.

You may have heard of the brand new app called ICukoo which has been in the news over the past week. ICukoo is an alarm clock that allows you to donate money to charity every time you hit the snooze button.

It works like any other alarm clock on your smartphone but has more benefits than just an extra 15 minutes in bed. You have to choose the charity you want to donate to, the length and interval time of your snooze, and the amount you wish to give.

Do you work in digital inclusion and want to get fresh ideas on how to have greater impact within your community?
