Here are five tweets that we’ve selected to cover fundraising opportunities, achievements, statistics and the occasional oddity.
1. Charity promoting charity
Charities might compete against each other for public attention and support, but the savvy ones also know when to collaborate or share the work of other organisations.

2. Visualising numbers
Infographics are popular methods of displaying lots of numbers and data. They are useful for charities because they can both display the need, as a fundraising campaign gets underway, and the impact, following the success of that campaign.
