And so it begins… Small Charity Week 2011
Small Charity Week kicks off this morning as we take to the street with an audacious campaign to get everyone behind the small charity sector. The I Love Small Charities Pledge is an opportunity for anyone, wherever they are, to sign up to find out more about small charities and how they can help our sector to thrive.
We want people everywhere to pledge to do something to help out a small charity between now and Small Charity Week 2012 (yes, we’re planning it already!). Some people may donate their time or talents, others may donate funds. Some people may want to help out on an ongoing basis, others as a one-off. Some people want to support a specific cause, others a charity near where they live. Whatever the motivation, the I Love Small Charities Pledge is all about getting the information that will make it easy to support a small charity.
Once someone signs up to the pledge they will receive regular emails showcasing small charities and offering advice on how a volunteer or donor can make a meaningful impact on an organisation.
In London the pledge will be taking to the streets to sign up the public and garner some attention for Small Charity Week. In the evening some of our VIP friends will be signing the pledge – keep an eye on the website www.smallcharityweek.com for the latest updates.
Sign the Pledge
Anyone can sign the pledge by visiting www.smallcharityweek.com/pledge . This is a chance for us to promote the whole sector, so please add it to your Facebook page, tweet about it or tell whoever you can.

Small Charity Week wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing partners at the Charity Technology Trust (CTT). CTT connects the third sector with technology. Since 2001, they have been bridging the gap between the third sector and technology partners to help organisations improve their effectiveness. The CTXchange programme has enabled thousands of charities to work far more effectively using donated technology – speeding up communications, ensuring compatibility between equipment, and protecting systems. They also enable third sector organisations to share a range of finance, communications and campaigning services.
