With our fingers on the pulse, here are some new and old tweets for fundraisers full of inspiration, humour and opportunities.

1. Bright spark charity shop

A Cardiff cat charity shop mistakenly sold the tools of an electrician that was fixing the shop’s lighting. He was helping them for free, and just walked outside to get something from his van. In that time, the shop sold his tools, worth £200, for £1.


2. Fundraising with spine

How to double the likely readership of a book for sale in a charity shop, and support Oxfam’s work for gender equality.


3. Talkin’ ’bout your generation?

Third Sector’s new award recognises the best of fundraisers who are new to the sector. They can be any age, but must not have worked in fundraising for more than three years.


4. Joining the dots

Nearly three years old, but this is still an inspiring way to illustrate a fundraising run by giving a sense of scale and mass participation.


5. #RandomActsOfKindnessDay and #RAKWeek

Another tweet from last month, here is Cancer Research UK making the most of the global Random Acts of Kindness Day and Random Acts of Kindness Week.
