What’s New Blog #AntlersforAutism - what's it all about? Throughout December, we’d love you to show your support to Daisy Chain by wearing your #AntlersforAutism to raise awareness of autism on social media. Our aim is to get the hashtag trending to increase awareness of autism, raise some additional funds, and have a little festive fun along the way! We’d love to see how far our campaign can reach and how many people would be willing to get involved. What do I need to do? Simply don your antlers (or use a festive filter!) take a selfie and post it on your social media pages with the hashtag #AntlersforAutism. You can also text ANTLERS to 70660 to donate £5 and help us to raise funds to continue providing services to families affected by autism in the Tees Valley area. How you can help us! Here are a few ideas of how you can support our social media campaign: Set the trend – by taking your selfie and posting it on your social media accounts using the #AntlersforAutism hashtag, you’ve already helped us. By texting ANTLERS to 70660 to donate £5, you’ve raised funds for Daisy Chain. An example of a post could be: “I’m wearing #AntlersforAutism to raise awareness of #autism and to support Daisy Chain – text ANTLERS to 70660 to donate £5.” (Don't forget to tag us in on Facebook/Instagram - @daisychainproject) “I’m wearing #AntlersforAutism in aid of @the_dc_project – text ANTLERS to 70660 to donate £5.” (Twitter) Use our Facebook frame – we’ve created a specific Facebook frame with antlers to make it even easier to get involved – you can access the frame on a mobile device from the following link: www.facebook.com/fbcameraeffects/tryit/193614201203573/ Find a Snapchat filter – who doesn't love a Snapchat filter?!
