February the month of love, celebrates Valentine’s Day with aplomb around the world. It marked a special importance this year at iVolunteer across Seven cities. An unconventional approach of involving volunteers to celebrate this day with senior citizens which will be cherished for a long time! The response was massive with a participation of more than 91 volunteers who made this event successful.
The mission was to involve volunteers by sharing their time, skills and passion to promote India’s social development was achieved efficiently by reaching out to a wider audience both online and offline.
The goal was to break the stereotype of celebrating valentines day with people other than partners and was received well by people in all the seven cities.
Following were the details of the plan that was executed to gain maximum engagement:
- #BeMyValentine as a hashtag was used to promote the campaign, so people can share this day with senior citizen and make them feel special.
- Activities like dancing, singing and making paper bags with the help of volunteers was promoted both online and offline.
- Considering the activities across all seven cities i.e. Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chennai and Bangalore, participation was at its peak as every individual contributed equally.
Spreading smiles and happiness to the lives of our seniors, iVolunteer caught our attention indeed!
