Every Tuesday on Twitter is #CT or #CharityTuesday – a day for people to spread the word about the charities they choose to support and encourage others to follow them and spread the word. I wonder though, as the # becomes a part of a busier and busier Twitter stream, how many of us stop to read these Tweets, to take a few minutes to look at what it is about this cause that has made someone write about them. Do we choose to take some time on a Tuesday to give to someone else?
There are so many charities out there raising awareness, supporting people and families. Every Tuesday we get the chance to show them we are listening and paying attention. A charity often has a message of support for someone who needs comfort or information at a difficult time and us sharing their details on Twitter means that someone could find them at their time of need.
So go on, this #CharityTuesday make a choice to share the details of a charity that you support. Let others know about the great work they do and encourage them to keep doing it. My #CT Tweets today are in support of @HarrisonsFund – working to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Distrophy. Who will you choose?
Have a terrific Tuesday
