Festive fundraiser

Tommy working hard on the Facebook campaignThis Christmas we are running a Facebook fundraising campaign – and we want you to get involved. Tommy, the community manager who is running the campaign, tells us more in this blog.

In the run up to Christmas I will be posting information on our Facebook timeline about the Fans' Festive Fundraiser, a campaign in which we'll be asking our fans to come up with Facebook-based ways to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

We will then ask you to help choose one idea that we will build in time for Christmas – ambitious I know!

Starting from tomorrow, I'll share some inspirational stories on our timeline to help stimulate your creativity.

There will be information about our history, the people we help and our projects. I'll also ask you thought-provoking questions to get those creative cogs turning.

Once we've heard all of your ideas, we'll start to bring it to life by sketching up the three most promising ones next week. We'll then post these to our timeline for your feedback and run a poll to decide which idea we go with, so don't forget to vote.

I'm really looking forward to hearing all of your ideas - here's hoping we come up with a cracking Christmas appeal to raise much needed money for RAF family.
