Topic:

Covenant House exists for those young people for whom there is often no one else – young people aged 16-24 who have either willingly fled physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse or those who have been forced from their homes. Covenant House Vancouver decided to expand its donor base through social media, centering on the launch of a new blog, “On The House”.

The benefits of launching a blog for Covenant House Vancouver were:

  • It provided an effective platform for broadcasting and sharing more information about Covenant House’s programs
  • It improved relationships and outreach with other bloggers to increase on-line media coverag
  • It offered an opportunity to provide authentic youth involvement in communications

Tune in to see how a blog helped a charitable organization increase donations by 35 per cent!

This project won the Silver Award for Electronic and Social Media in the 2010 CPRS National Awards of Excellence
