Most were based around physical activity.Focusing specifically on peer-to-peer fundraising activities, the report provides a picture of campaign activity and virtual fundraising event performance during this time and explores the opportunities open to charities, including insight and guidance to help charities with their own campaigns in the virtual arena.It also includes input from JustGiving, and covers a range of campaigns by charities including British Red Cross, Breast Cancer Now, ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity, and Alzheimer’s Society, revealing which activities, from running, to walking, and cycling, have been most popular, how they have performed in terms of income and participant numbers, as well as the key determiners of campaign success.Harder challenges, for example, tended to raise more per participant than easier ones, with cycling and climbing the activities that raised the most per participant. Clear and simple asks, and events that had a clear connection to the cause, also did better, while offering participants opportunities to connect remotely, such as through Facebook groups was also important.The report also compares the performance of virtual vs. non-virtual campaigns, showing that while costs are lower for virtual events, on average they tend to bring in lower average fundraising values than non-virtual events. It also reveals the impact of converting an existing event into a virtual one on income and participation.John Tasker, partner at massive said:“In a year that’s been like no other, we’ve seen an unprecedented level of innovation and creativity from charities and events providers.”“We were really excited to be able to get under the skin of what drives the most successful virtual campaigns and most importantly to be able to share that insight, so others can get more out of their virtual and non-virtual events in the challenging months and years ahead.”Sally Falvey, Head of Corporate Marketing at JustGiving said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com.center_img “The Virtual Fundraising Monitor shines a light on the incredible wave of creativity and innovation that has been unlocked in the charity sector this year in response to COVID-19, and the dramatic acceleration we’ve seen at JustGiving in the number of charities launching virtual events.”“It’s reassuring to see that the report reveals that some of the bedrocks of event fundraising remain the same – we don’t have to throw out the entire rule book just yet, but there are emerging trends and differences shared that will help all charities benchmark their virtual events performance as they continue to adapt their fundraising.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Insights into pandemic’s virtual fundraising event performance revealed in new reportlast_img read more

Chile eager to make Copa history against Peru, says Vidal

first_imgMidfielder Arturo Vidal is feeling positive ahead of the Copa America semi-final against Peru as Chile go in search of a third straight titlePorto Alegre, Brazil | AFP |  Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal says the reigning Copa America champions are focused on making history ahead of their semi-final against Peru.The 2015 and 2016 champions are aiming for a third continental title in a row, a feat only achieved once before by Argentina in successive years from 1945-47.“We want to leave our legacy as triple champions, that’s our dream,” said the Barcelona midfielder, an integral part of Chile’s only two previous Copa successes.“That’s why we want to play our best match of the Copa against Peru. It would be something historic for us to get to the final and that’s our aim.”Chile faced Peru in the 2015 semi-finals on home soil when they won 2-1 before beating Argentina on penalties in the final for their first ever continental success.“We need to play the perfect match, to win it with authority,” added Vidal.“Peru have great teamwork, they play well, very similar to Colombia” who Chile beat on penalties in the quarter-final.“That’s why it will be a very difficult match and fantastic to play in it.”Vidal pointed to Peru captain and striker Paolo Guerrero as the biggest threat Chile will face on Wednesday.Guerrero and Chile’s Eduardo Vargas, with 12 goals each, are the top two still active scorers in Copa history.“He’s a player who knows how to play against four defenders and it always takes a lot out of us to mark him,” said Vidal.Vargas, who scored twice in Chile’s opening 4-0 thrashing of Japan, may never have had the chance to add to his Copa ledger, but for a change of heart by Chile’s Colombian coach Reinaldo Rueda.Vargas, known as “Turboman” for his incredible engine, fell out of favor with Rueda for disciplinary reasons following a friendly with Sweden in 2018.He spent almost 18 months overlooked by the Colombian before being recalled for the Copa America following 17 goals in 49 matches for his Mexican club side Tigres last season. It was a good move as Vargas has been electric in the tournament alongside a rejuvenated Alexis Sanchez — who’s looked his old self after 18 months of misery at Manchester United — and Jose Fuenzalida in a three-pronged attack.– ‘Right conditions’ –Peru are clear underdogs having been surprise qualifiers for the semi-finals.They arrived in the knock-out stages demoralized following a 5-0 thrashing by hosts Brazil in their final group match and progressed to the semi-finals on penalties, but only after Uruguay had three goals ruled out for offside in their quarter-final, two of those by the slimmest of margins that VAR spotted but were invisible to the naked eye.Even so, coach Ricardo Gareca says there’s no hint of an inferiority complex amongst his players.“We’re in the right conditions to tackle this kind of match,” he said.“Maybe it’s a bigger match than the others before but we can play better.”While Chile can boast established European-based talents in midfield such as Barcelona’s Vidal, Charles Aranguiz of Bayer Leverkusen and Bologna’s Erick Pulgar, Rueda feels that in Christian Cueva, who plays for Brazilians Santos, he has one of the most under-rated players in the tournament.“As far as we’re concerned, Cuevo doesn’t get the appreciation that he deserves from his performances for the national team, I don’t know why,” said Rueda.“Many times I see passes by a European player that illicit admiration, but I see Cuevo make passes that are just as good that go by completely unnoticed.”This is the third time in the last four editions Peru have reached the semi-finals but they haven’t gone on to the final since 1975 when winning their second Copa title.In fact, the only two times they’ve reached the final — the other was on home soil in 1939 — they won the tournament.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Water Supply System Put Into Service in St. Elizabeth

first_img “We know that without water, life is just uncomfortable. Having the water enables better, more productive activities by women and children especially in the households, and so this is the type of upliftment that we want to see with this type of investment,” he said. Story Highlights The Trenail Water Supply System in Maggoty, St. Elizabeth, was officially commissioned into service in the district on December 7.The project, which was completed at a cost of $24.8 million, will directly benefit the 3,400 residents of Trenail, Retirement, Hominy Hall, Bethsalem and Maroon Town.At the commissioning and handover ceremony, Managing Director of the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), Omar Sweeney, said the organization, along with the Government, is committed to the development of the quality of life of citizens in Jamaica.He outlined that women and children, in particular, are usually the most impacted by the lack of water, which cuts into productivity time, so his organisation embraces projects of this nature.“We know that without water, life is just uncomfortable. Having the water enables better, more productive activities by women and children especially in the households, and so this is the type of upliftment that we want to see with this type of investment,” he said.For his part, Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. J.C. Hutchinson, commended the work of JSIF, and encouraged the residents to continue to utilise their governance structure to advocate for development within their community.“For any project to come into an area, it has to come through an organisation. No one man can come and apply to JSIF to say they want a project, it has to come through an organisation,” he outlined.Mr. Hutchinson also highlighted that efforts will be made to extend the project to other areas of St. Elizabeth.The project, which was funded by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), the Basic Needs Trust Fund (BNTF) and JSIF, included the rehabilitation of an 80,000-gallon tank, the rehabilitation and extension of a concrete catchment pad, the construction of a sand filter and chlorination system, and the testing and sterilisation of the PVC pipeline.
