Day 25 of 100 Days

I’m a quarter of the way through my challenge! I’m really happy with how it’s going so far, and not once has it felt like a chore. My mind feels engaged, and I’m still managing to meet new people, albeit not in person.

What: Google AdWords
Organisation: eQuality Time

I spoke to Joe from eQuality Time for the first time today. It was great to ‘meet’ him, and it was really good to hear more about the charity, as I find what they do around finding tech-based solutions to help people really interesting. He’s a northerner who is based in Luton and work-wise is currently constrained by childcare duties and what being furloughed allows him to do, but he is working on the charity when and where he can. What has helped is that Google has been working quickly for us, as one of our domains has been accepted already, but we hit a speedbump because the Open Voice Factory domain is still awaiting approval to be included in the eQuality time account, but it has been resubmitted so we will await the result. I've booked in some time for Wednesday to have a proper Google AdWords day, as I've also got a meeting with my dutch students for Dons Local Action Group and AFC Wimbledon Foundation, so I might as well make a day of it.

What: Zoom Meeting with Caterer.com
Organisation: Only A Pavement Away

Today, we had a meeting with hospitality publication Caterer.com to discuss a video series we've got coming out from mid-February which tells stories about the charity. We made a plan for releasing the videos, and I also found some time to create some more social media graphics.

There was also time for a quick lunchtime call with Ian from Charity Excellence Framework and we had a good catch-up. I've lined-up some work for him tomorrow as he's got this really cool new feature on his website which aggregates all the funders in one place - like Compare the Market, but for charity fundraisers.
