I’m willing to make a Facebook page and Instagram account tomorrow, and replicate the content we already have on the Twitter on those over the next few days, if that’s cool with you?

We’ll also get a lot more attention from even simple graphics we can share rather than text or plain links. Some small chunks of text from the website or gofundme copy would be good. Some can be to donate so include a link to the gofundme, some to get involved so link to the forum, future ones can be to request food and link to the form. The food photo with text over the top will be a nice look, and more variations of the gorgeous ‘solidarity in separation’ graphic. But it would help to be somewhat consistent with fonts, colour schemes so we’re more memorable.

@sean_f you’re of course an expert on design so I imagine you might already be doing the graphics, but happy to try for now if not. Or if you give me a background/ font/ colour scheme I can make some that hopefully you won’t hate too much :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

@kaeden my suggestion would be to make a Facebook page (no group) today using the solidarity in seperation image from the gofundme as the banner image and make me, Ben and Seb admins of the page so we can all post. Then post and pin the gofundme page at the top. I would also share out blog update underneath that and include in page description that people can message the page if they’re interested in volunteering.

I assume @sean_f or @Leo are doing the Twitter. If you could give us access? Or just one other person so it’s not too confusing?

I think we should get an insta once we’re operational to post photos of us actually doing stuff.

One action from our finance WG meeting was to speak to outreach people about doing a fundraising push - perhaps best saved for a few days’ time once we have feedback from the pilot run
