I was kindly asked to post about the event I was invited to and share my thoughts, or rather the motivations behind my involvement in ActionAid UK's Summer Party for bloggers. First of all, I am really honoured to be invited and participate in event which ticks off almost all my boxes - mum blogger, nonprofit fan and practitioner, social media addict...but this is not really the key. I am really, really impressed that Action Aid are working consistently with relevant bloggers, open up their doors and share their work. Trust me, working in this industry for more than few years now I know how much of a shift that is for a large nonprofit organisation.
So I am going with a lovely friend and hope to learn more about ActionAid work, but also catch up with fellow mum and dad bloggers and hopefully meet up with few new ones too!
I think you can still join too if you fill out the invite form here.
Agenda is below:
Alex Graham – the CEO of Wall to Wall the award winning independent TV production company who have brought us fabulous shows like Who Do You Think You Are? and The Voice UK – will be speaking about his experience of visiting our work in Burma/Myanmar.
Jimi Mistry will also be talking about his first-hand experience visiting our work and what it means to him to be a child sponsor.
ActionAid’s Digital Producer Louise will be offering top tips on how to make the most out of blogging and social media.
Hope to see you there!:)
