We’re excited to be supporting #OneDayChangesLives – a new national awareness campaign launched by the Association of Charitable Organisations (ACO) to raise public awareness of the impact grant-making charities and benevolent funds such as ours have on society, and the services we can offer.
On 22 January charities across the nation will come together to show how they are changing lives every day by sharing case studies and stories of where their support has helped those in need.
People have heard of the big-name charities, but many are unaware of the 100s of charities that exist throughout the UK to help in times of need when an unexpected or life-changing crisis arises. People also often do not realise they are eligible for support from these charities, and how simple it is to apply. This campaign aims to change this so more know of and benefit from the support benevolent charities such as ours provide.
This day will also show the nation the overall impact ACO charities have. While an individual act of benevolence may seem small, such as providing a grant for a new fridge, this can have a huge impact on a beneficiary’s life. Together individual acts by ACO members can amount to a colossal positive impact on society.
Get involved on 22 January!
On 22 January charities across the nation will be coming together and sharing stories across social media of where they have helped change someone’s life using the hashtag #OneDayChangesLives, with stories also shared in the national press.
Follow us and @ACObenevolence to follow the campaign. We also encourage members of the public who have ever been helped by grant-giving charities to take part and share their stories using the hashtag #OneDayChangesLives on the day.
