Creative Sparks – This week in giving!

Following Giving Tuesday, we want to highlight what a great week this has been for giving! Give yourself a pat on the back. We love spreading the giving love at Creative Bridge whether it is spreading knowledge, skills, a gift or even a hot cuppa.

Check out our favourites from this week.

Ask for Angela

This campaign is brilliant in its simplicity. It offers women in Lincolnshire the ability to ask for ‘Angela’ at the bar if they feel uncomfortable during a date. This unlikely name prompts the bar staff to seek an exit strategy for the woman. What a clever and forward thinking idea – bravo!

Take back the night

Take back the night saw hundreds of people march through the streets of Northampton town in aid of 20-year-old India Chipchase, who was abducted and killed on her way home from a club earlier this year. Moving, and memorable.

Walking home for Christmas

This is a simple yet lovely campaign to help raise money for vulnerable veterans. You receive a Santa hat and a high-vis jacket by registering £10 (or more). Amazingly the campaign has already reached its supporter goal – great effort! Then all you do is walk!

#GiveMe5

Localgiving matched 1,000 £5 donations made this week. That’s a HUGE £5,000 donation to participating charities. We love this! They are having another #GiveMe5 event 16 December. That’s some great giving. Take a look here.
