Why a pledge?
We Act highlights the incredible work of every single volunteer and staff member in the charity sector. When an organisation pledges to support the campaign, they not only champion their cause but the collective action of the community and voluntary sector. The We Act pledge aims to create a furthered sense of belonging and to bring new and exciting energy to the We Act campaign.
Who takes the pledge?
If your organisation wants to take the pledge to support the campaign, we ask that you nominate someone from your Communications Department or someone who is willing to be contacted by our officers. Anyone from your organisation can join the We Act campaign and sign up to our newsletter and follow us on social media @weactireland.
How can those who pledge benefit from the campaign?
Every charity and community group in Ireland belongs to the We Act campaign and the campaign belongs to them. Organisations who take the pledge will have visibility on our website and social media, receive We Act materials to showcase, have priority registration for staff and volunteers at our We Act training series, be our first port of call for We Act stories, have the opportunity to join in our video production and photocalls, and have access to assistance in getting your organisation’s work in front of media.
What does an organisation do once they've pledged?
Organisations that take the pledge will help to champion the We Act causes. Those who pledge will receive a media toolkit which outlines how to share information about the campaign and your support and how to add a We Act badge to your website. You proudly support the We Act campaigns goals to encourage support in the sector, highlight our impact, and encourage participation by means of sharing your stories online and in-person.
Is there a financial responsibility for those who pledge?
No, organisations are not required to pay any fees or commit anything financially to the campaign to make the pledge.
How do I get media support from We Act?
We want to share positive stories. Stories about the people who spot a gap, see a need, take the initiative, and act. So, we have dedicated efforts to ensure that positive media coverage of charities and their work is a priority. We Act will use its media contacts to help broadcast your story. If you have a story of a volunteer, event, or project you’d like to share send on the details to email@example.com and the Campaigns Officer will be in touch to discuss further details. To see previous examples of our media work visit weact.ie/media
How do I submit a staff or volunteer story?
Telling the stories of individuals and groups taking action in Ireland is central to the We Act campaign. You can submit a story of your staff or volunteers to firstname.lastname@example.org and the We Act campaigns officer will then be in touch for further information and to set a meeting to being the interview process.
