My Good Deed of the Day - Supporting Enham Trust Lloyds Bank Community Fund by Tweeting
This is the email that got forwarded to me from one of our clients.
Enham Trust have been shortlisted with three other organisations to receive funds from the local Lloyds Bank Community Fund. Please could you take a > minute to support us? -it only takes a very short time to complete your vote! and please share this with your friends and colleagues? We are currently second in the table.
We could receive £3000, or £500 depending on the vote.
As an example of what that could mean to the people we support; £1000 could enable our partners Hobbs Therapy to provide over 25 hours of physiotherapy. Most people assume physiotherapy would be state funded. It’s not. The work we do with Hobbs is funded by donations and I have attached a personal story about Kai, and you can see for yourself the difference physiotherapy can do to help someone achieve independence. This is a fantastic example of where fundraising monies can go.
There were 4 ways we could vote:

I wanted to help but without it becoming too much of a hassle for me. So going to a Lloyds branch was a big No-No. I looked at the email option and because it required email confirmation, I thought it was a bit lengthy and my email address could be used to send unsolicited mails afterwards. I've been recently received quite a few spam SMS, so I was apprehensive to send my vote by text.
This left me with the Twitter option and it literally took 2 seconds to get my vote across. Once you click on the link on their website, you're redirected to Twitter with the hashtag already in the URL and you just have to sign in and the tweet is posted. Two seconds was all it took for a good cause. I hope they win.
Have you ever supported the Enham Trust?
If yes, I'll be happy to hear how.
