Thank You Party [Tweetchat]

It’s the season to be grateful. Nonprofits are seeing donations pour in from their community this GivingTuesday and end-of-year, and they’re enthusiastic to show their gratitude. Join us for a special tweetchat where we’ll amplify that.

This thank you party for donors is where we’ll share innovative ways to make donors feel appreciated and amplify each other’s thank yous. Think of it as a digital arts and crafts party. We welcome all nonprofits to join us! Come prepared with Twitter handles and names to thank and we’ll provide GIFs, thank you images and invite everyone for an hour of practicing gratitude for the support for the sector.

We’ll start with some warm-up questions and get to the fun part, doing a group thank you! Come join us, bring your donor names, Twitter handles and join in this fun social experiment with us!
