Why is supporting independent charity important?

So, why donate to independent charity?

Many of us are aware of the many different charities supporting tackling various issues worldwide.

We are also fully aware that many charities need our help to do so, every day we see an advert, receive a phone call or avoid the person on the street waving.

Yes, charities go to great efforts to spread awareness and ask for aid, and yes, many of us avoid these efforts like the plague. However, not many of us are asking why to do charities go to such extreme efforts to engage us and ask for help.

With the current decline in giving and issues across the globe being televised daily. I have decided to ask this question; why is supporting independent charity important?

The answer is simple; it’s the right thing to do. Giving to charity is crucial to helping people in the country that sadly don’t have support systems or fund, to helping people in the UK.

Without charities working overseas and here, life would be dramatically different.

Poverty would be worse oversea and in the UK, with people finding them self in a never ending loop, as the education system would have less funding.

Serious illnesses would be rife, without charities studying and find cures or treatments. Making the fatality rate higher and leaving more homeless with out the correct care.

The truth is that without the many charity or their arm of fundraisers are society would be shockingly different.

As one of the most advanced and wealthiest countries in the world, we are lucky enough to be able to make a change.

Want to support your favorite charity?  

 

You’ve found a charity you’re passionate about and want to support them the best you can.

 

But the big question is how? Fundraising can be a really fun away to raise awareness and donate to the charity of your choose.

Here’s five creative fundraising ideas, which will inspire you to get your fundraising started.

 

1) Get Climbing!

 

Climb the Everest…no, not literary.

 

Create a climbing event at your nearest rock climbing center and call it the Everest challenge.

 

Ask your participants to climb the length of Mount Everest as a team and document them doing so. Participants can then ask everyone they know, to sponsor their climb.

2) Get your chic on!

 

Hosting a catwalk can be creative, fun and practical. Invite local business, colleges and schools to get involved.

 

Then sell tickets to the local community through the participants and social media.

 

Contact your local media, to help spread awareness far and wide!

 

3) Feeling arty?

 

For those talented artists out there; host an art exhibition. Invite everyone from your community to take part in a painting event.

Then host an art exhibition to showcase the results; use social media to advertise the event and sell tickets.

4) Hungry?

 

Organize a big picnic or tea party in a local park or public area. Use the local media and online networks to advertise the event and ask for donations to attend.

5) Get cultural!

Host a film night! Ask people to participate in a series of short films that highlight and celebrate different cultures. Try selling your tickets on social media.

How to survive as a fashion blogger

If the writers at Marie Claire are to believe a new fashion blog is born every 0.25 seconds (or so it feels like)… whilst that might be good news for the everyday fashionista, if you’re a blogger it’s the last news you want to hear. More fashion blogs mean more distractions for your readers and more competition to create stand out content.

So how do you continue to separate yourself from the growing army of fashion bloggers, and more importantly how can you build your blog into a more successful business?LiveTree is shaking up the system and what’s more we can help you to make the transition from fashion blogger to fashion designer. Sound too good to be true? Let me introduce you to our platform…

LiveTree is a revolutionary site that uses the tried and tested principles of word of mouth to empower creatives. We provide up and coming fashion designers and musicians the opportunity to showcase their creativity by selling their products within our unique community.

You’re probably thinking it sounds a bit like a jumped up version of Etsy, but that’s just the beginning. What makes LiveTree unique is that you as a fashion blogger can browse collections from up and coming designers and when you find something you love, you can share it with your followers – we call this branching.

By branching the things you love, you not only support independent designers, but in the process you earn commission from any sale made through your links, so everyone’s a winner!

Branching products is just the first step, the LiveTree platform allows you to forge relationships with those at the cutting edge of fashion.

There are opportunities for you to help designers to build their brand by seed funding their creative projects – you could help to fund their next collection and in the process earn rewards – think behind the scenes fashion stories, interviews with the latest fashion designers, exclusive invitations to get your hands on the collection before anyone else. Anything is possible!

LiveTree is starting to sound pretty good, even if we do say so ourselves – but we’re not finished yet, as a budding fashion designer you can start your own crowdfunding project and promote it through your blog. You could even get your own followers to fund the creation of your very own fashion label.

The only question left to answer is ‘are you ready to make the transition from fashion blogger to fashion designer?’

At this early stage LiveTree is an exclusive, invite only platform and if you want to be part of this elite club you will need to act fast. Grab this opportunity with both hands by contacting us today to get your invite code and become one of the pioneering fashion bloggers to use our groundbreaking platform.

Knock-knock… you have a super-snooper

Eye

Close your eyes and imagine a best friend… in fact imagine a friend that’s even better than your best friend if that’s possible. This friend is so good, he or she will always remember your birthday. They’ll remind you of your friends and family’s birthdays too. They know your favourite colour, your favourite food, what you like to do at the weekends, where you like to shop, what makes you laugh and what makes you cry. They also know where you’ve been on holiday for the last few years… your entire relationship history… your shoe size and maybe even what underwear you’re wearing. They’ll know your deepest, darkest secrets – the ones that you thought nobody knew and they’ll even be working tirelessly to figure out what you want to buy next…

All of a sudden they’re starting to sound like they’re not your best friend at all… they’re definitely at the top end of the “creepy” scale and you wouldn’t be unreasonable if you thought of them as a snoop.

In fact, this “friend” is the stalkiest stalker there will ever be, and the reason they are stalking you, is because the more they know about you – the more money they can make from you.

The “stalker” that we’re describing is actually a collective group made up of the search engine you use, the social media websites you go on and even your internet service provider (ISP). Between them, they collate information on everything you do in your life on a daily basis. These corporates make billions from your personal data.

“So what’s the problem?” you’re probably thinking… “if it’s happening to everyone, who cares?”

At LiveTree, we don’t believe that big corporations should hold control of being able to make money from your online activity. We think, that if it is going to happen – it should be transparent and you should be in control. You’re not a product to be sold for mega-bucks. After all, it’s your data, through online searches, things you share with friends, things you like and photos you upload.

That’s what LiveTree believes and that’s why we’ve developed a revolutionary, social marketplace which enables you to browse the latest fashion, search out the latest music and even connect to and help fund some of our partnered charities. But what makes LiveTree different from anything else, is that it’s built to help you make money transparently from the things that you would normally do anyway.

It’s really easy – just browse LiveTree for the things you like, hit the “Branch” button to push a post out to your friends and if they buy the item that you’ve just shared – you’ll get paid branch commission. What’s more, we promise that we won’t be “stalkering” you in the background – take a look at our privacy policy right here.

So if you’re ready to own the web and become an internet pioneer in the process, register yourself as a new user by clicking on the link below. LiveTree is an exclusive platform and once registered, you’ll need to wait for a special invitation before you’re able to begin your LiveTree journey.
