Donate your words to help a woman speak out.
1 in 3 New Zealand women will be affected by domestic abuse during their lifetime. The Women’s Refuge Crisis Line provides them with a safe way to speak out. In 2012 funds were needed to secure this vital service. Bucket shaking and door-to-door appeals had lost relevancy with donors, so we created a new donation mechanism, turning Facebook status updates into dollars. The ‘Donate Your Words’ Facebook app enabled donors to select a dollar value for each word of their update. The donation was made via credit card and their status update was posted to their timeline, acknowledging the donation.
