Could you spare 1p a day?

Could you spare 1p a day?

This week saw the launch of the #1paday (1p-a-day) campaign by Cerebra UK. They are encouraging supporters to get involved by giving just 1p a day to Cerebra through microdonation website ploink! and use a link that takes supporters directly to their ploink! page.

The campaign is based on the fact that if everyone on their Facebook page joined in it would raise over £8000 a year.

This equates to 10 computers, 7 buggies or 16 SALT (Speech And Language Therapy) vouchers worth up to £500 each

Cerebra are encouraging people to get involved by tweeting and facebooking about it and they provide some words that people can use if they want to “I just joined the #1paday campaign for @CerebraUK @Ploink”
