If you’re a blogger looking to work with charities and use your platform for good, then you may be interested to hear about a special conference hosted by Save the Children in London on 8th February.
The free blogger conference will take place at the Save the Children offices from 11am until 4pm and be packed with practical workshops and inspiring sessions from Save the Children staff and various experts. If you want to work with the charity in 2014 then this is a great event to go along to.
Tots100 blogger Chris Mosler works for the charity and told us why they want to continue the fantastic work they do with bloggers. “Save the Children has worked closely with the blogging community for a number of years. Last year saw the bloggers writing about the IF campaign, breastfeeding, nutrition and UK poverty; it saw them donning Christmas jumpers, raising money and spreading the word about Save the Children’s work far and wide. So far this year we have already seen bloggers visitng the House of Lords with Save the Children where they met Lauren Child and spoke to MPs and Peers about changing the story for the UK’s poorest children.”
February’s conference will showcase plans for 2014 as Save the Children make combating newborn deaths a campaign priority. Guest speaker and midwife Gemma Raby from One Born Every Minute will be sharing her experiences from her trip to Liberia and answering questions from bloggers.
Whether you are a new blogger just realising that you can use your blog as a platform to campaign, or a more established writer looking to take your campaigning to the next level, book your place now by registering on Eventbrite and Save the Children will be in touch with a full schedule very soon.
