It’s time to think about posts for February and what you will need to get those posts scheduled. I’m walking you through some ideas to help get your creativity flowing. For more days you can go to https://nationaldaycalendar.com/february/
2- Groundhog Day- What are you constantly in need of? Use Groundhog Day to ask for those things. Think the movie Groundhog Day, where the day is repeated over and over. If your cause is conservation, use the sighting or non-sighting of the shadow to highlight conservation tips for winter or spring.
4- National Thank a Mail Carrier Day- Give a shout out to the person who delivers your mail and takes good care getting the donations to your nonprofit. Use #ThankAMailCarrierDay to post on social media.
7- National Send a Card to a Friend Day- Send a virtual card via post to your supporters thanking them for being a friend to the cause. (Have your Founder, ED, or Chairman of the Board send out personal notes to major donors.)
11- National Make a Friend Day- Celebrate new friends to the organization. Ask your supporters to share your cause as they talk to friends so you can make new friends too. Use #NationalMakeAFriendDay to post on social media.
14- Valentine’s Day- Post pictures or videos of your CEO, clients, and employees telling your supporters how much you love and appreciate them.
17- National Random Act of Kindness Day- What random act of kindness has your nonprofit experienced? What random act of kindness can you do? Share in posts.
19- President’s Day- This day is set aside, by more and more of America’s population, to honor all of the past United States Presidents that have served our country. Does your charity have a connection to a president? Tell the story. If not, celebrate your ED/President/CEO.
22- National Chili Day- Have a series of posts where your employees give their favorite chili recipe either in writing with a picture or by video throughout the day. You can also show clients enjoying or cooking chili (if you are a food-related organization!).
