Episode 2 of The Connected Giving Show airs today

Today will see the second episode of The Connected Giving Show broadcast live. Created by ‘connected giving’ specialists GivePenny, the show is one of the first fundraising-specific video channels.

The show host is once again Lee Clark, ‘Founder, Chief Everything Officer and Idea Ninja’ of GivePenny. You can tune it at 4pm today to watch him talk about the Imagine Dragons and Angry Birds collaboration for the Tyler Robinson Foundation.

GivePenny is focused on linking the many creative and fun activities that people across the country already engage in to fundraising. The initial focus is on online gaming but they are already expanding to include sporting activities like running, hence their integration with activity app Strava


Guests this week

This episode’s guests are Sara Johnson, Fundraising Manager – Macmillan Birmingham, the Black Country and Staffordshire, and Cheryl Attwood, volunteer for Macmillan Birmingham, the Black Country and Staffordshire.  They will be talking with Lee about The Macbrum Campaign.

In addition the Connected Giving Show will feature some of the latest news exclusively from UK Fundraising, including our coverage of older people getting inked for charity.
