We support many charities and events and this year we decided to do our bit for Children in Need. During the week leading up to the Children in Need fundraising night we pledged to donate 50p for each new twitter follower.
This fundraising event raised £132.00 for Children in Need and saw 264 new followers on Twitter.
We would like to thank all our new followers for their support in this campaign and hope that if we do the same next year we can beat this total.
Five members of the Safelincs team went to Saatchi & Saatchi Design in London for a Twitter training session last week.
The training had been gained through a charity auction for Mercy Ships at their 2010 Ball. As we have only just started to use Twitter as a way of communicating through Social Media, this was an opportunity not to be missed.
The training carried out by Ashleigh Goodall, the MD at Saatchi&Saatchi Design was invaluable. We covered a lot of ground about how to disperse interesting and relevant content through Twitter and how Twitter can be linked in with the overall communication with our customers.
Today marks the first day of our Twitter competition, where you have the chance to win 1 of 50 carbon monoxide alarms for your home. As a fire safety company and a Fire Kills partner, we know how important it is to promote and educate people about the dangers of smoke and other harmful gases in the home. Not only will you be able to learn a little something in our fire safety quiz, you will also be given the opportunity to sign up to our free smoke alarm reminders service, so you’ll never forget to change your batteries, test or replace your smoke alarm ever again!
As a thank you for your support in spreading this important message we are giving away a fantastic prize. Every day, for 25 days, two lucky winners will each receive a Kidde slimline digital CO alarm. Safelincs and Kidde have teamed up to provide these alarms that could potentially save your life.
The competition is now closed.
