Christmas Campaign

Our Christmas present to you

With the festive season around the corner, we know you’ll not just be thinking about mulled wine, and mince pies – but also how to engage your supporters in the month of giving.

So to help you, we’re getting into the festive season of giving – with a couple of presents that could make your Christmas very merry.

Win one of five Virgin Money London Marathon places

To celebrate the season of giving, every direct donation your charity receives from now until 14 December 2017, will put you in the running to win one of five Virgin Money London Marathon places.

Whether it’s a regular or one off direct donation to your main charity page, a donation to a specific Christmas or Giving Tuesday appeal, or simply to a campaign you’re running this December, each donation will get you one entry into our amazing prize draw.

Share your campaign with us and you could win £1,000

We don’t just want to help you and your supporters get into the spirit of giving, we’d love to also tell the world about your campaign. Share your Virgin Money Giving campaign page with us, whether it’s a Santa run, Christmas jumper day or taking part in Giving Tuesday – and our favourite will win £1000.

In choosing the winning charity, we will be looking at the following criteria:

Campaign idea – What your creative idea is to engage supporters
Your story – How well your campaign page tells your story through copy and imagery
Social share-ability – How you reach and inspire your supporters through social media

Entering is easy. Use our Campaigns tool to create an appeal or campaign and share it with us by emailing charityfeedback@virginmoneygiving.com with a short description and a link to it by midday 14 December 2017. If your charity has already made use of the Campaigns tool for an existing campaign, appeal or event supporting a charity of the year partnership and is still open for donations, these are eligible too, just send the details to us.
