If every follower donates just £1 on the Cancer Research site, we’ll hit the £10k target!
What is the ’10K for £10K for Childhood Leukaemia’ campaign?
Since the very early days of MoDaCo back in 2002, we have been involved with raising money for Cancer Research. When we’ve held our face-to-face events over the years proceeds have always been donated to CR and other fundraising efforts since have always contributed to this extremely worthy cause. Just recently I noticed that my follower count on Twitter was heading towards 10,000 and this got me thinking about whether I could use this following to do some good. This in turn led me to wonder if we could raise £10,000 for the MoDaCo Cancer Research ‘My Project’ in aid of Childhood Leukaemia, which equates to a donation of £1 per Twitter follower.
Of course, the best reward of donating to such a worthy cause is the knowledge that your are contributing to helping the most vulnerable of Cancer sufferers, but there’s no reason there can’t be an extra carrot of a gadget or two up for grabs is there…, hence we have a prize pool, the recipients of which will be chosen at random the end of the donation effort from those who have donated.
What are the prizes?
I have started the ball rolling by donating some of my personal tech to the prize pool and I have also invited some friends of MoDaCo to offer prizes too. I hope that the list below will grow as the effort gets publicised.
