I ♥ Small Charities Day

Small Charity Week 2018 will kick off with I ♥ Small Charities Day on 18th June. This is a day to raise awareness of the work of all small charities across the UK. Getting involved is easy and your small charity has the chance to win up to £450!

We are running three competitions on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to help raise the profile of small charities with cash prizes for the winners.


  • #ILoveSmallCharities Twitter competition – winning small charity gets a £150 donation
  • #ILoveSmallCharities Facebook competition – winning small charity gets a £150 donation
  • #ILoveSmallCharities Instagram competition – winning small charity gets a £150 donation

How to enter:

Take a photo of yourself holding up a poster that reads:

“I love (your charity’s name) because (why you love them)”.

Then simply post it to either Twitter, Instagram or the Small Charity Week Facebook page, depending which competition you wish to participate in. Make sure you include the #ILoveSmallCharities hashtag when you post your photograph so we can track your entry.

Who can post photos?

The competition is designed to help new and current supporters engage with your charity. However, if your supporter group don’t have their own social media accounts, images posted by the small charity are also accepted.

How are entries counted?

  • Entries are counted as one vote per post with a unique image/message
  • Double entries are not valid e.g. an individual posting a photo and then the charity reposting the same one
  • A group picture, e.g. with five people and five posters, is counted as one entry

We’ve provided a printable poster template for you to download, but you are welcome to make your own. You can have a read of the full competition rules.

I ♥ Small Charities Day is a great opportunity to engage current and new supporters and to raise your profile to the broadest audience possible. Start preparing your activity now and let your supporters know what you are planning through your communications. We have provided supporting materials for you to promote the competition to potential supporters which you can download.
