31 Ways to Boost Your Year-End Appeal with Social Media

For the past two years, most online giving happens between GivingTuesday (12/2) and December 31st. It's the time of the year when everyone is thankful, appreciative and generous.

Year-end is also when other nonprofits and brands compete with you for your community's attention! Like previous years, they will pull out all the stops!

This workshop will help you develop a solid plan to engage your community, reach new people, and convert more donors during the chaotic month of December. You will learn about:

  • Creating a 1-page marketing plan for your year-end campaign.
  • Using Facebook and Twitter to create more relevant year-end messages.
  • Creative ways (and example) to get your superfans talking to their friends about your campaign.
  • Mixing social media with email marketing to amplify awareness for your campaign.
  • Saving time with tools like Canva, PostPlanner and Buzzsumo.
  • Smart ways to make sure your campaign works on mobile.

These types of dental ceramic materials are dominating the market and future development bringing with it more long-term success. This presentation will provide a look at failure modes and effects in bi-layer all-ceramic crown-cement-tooth systems, tying together the influences on resistance geometry; cement modulus and layer thickness; damage induced by shaping, fabrication, clinical adjustments, and sandblasting; and fatigue in the wet intraoral environment.

Luncheon with Sarah Smiley - Dinner with the Smileys

The uplifting true story of a wife and mother's yearlong experience inviting one new guest (from senators to school teachers, artists to professional athletes) to dinner for each week that her husband was deployed overseas.

But Dinner with the Smileys isn't really about dinner. And it's not about the military. It's about 250 strangers who came together to help raise three boys (one of the cusp of adolescence) in the absence of their father. It's a love story about marriage, motherhood, and the power of community.

Inside this personal story are the universal issues of loss, grief, loneliness, regrets, sacrifice, and, ultimately, unexpected joy and finding one's own strength.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sarah Smiley is the author of a syndicated newspaper column that is published in cities across the country, the memoirs Dinner with the Smileys and Going Overboard, and a collection of essays titled I'm Just Saying. Sarah has been a Navy dependent for more than 36 years, first as the daughter of Rear Admiral Lindell Rutherford (USN, Ret.), and now as the wife of Lt. Cmdr. Dustin Smiley, a Navy pilot. She has a B.S. in Education from Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, and M.A. in Mass Communication from the University of Maine.

BJ Novak - The Book with No Pictures

B.J. Novak of The Office fame introduces his new childrens book, The Book With No Pictures at the Wellesley Free Library. This wildly funny book will turn any reader into a comedian.

You might think a book with no pictures seems boring and serious. Except . . . heres how books work. Everything written on the page has to be said by the person reading it aloud. Even if the words say . . .

BLORK. Or BLUURF.

Even if the words are a preposterous song about eating ants for breakfast, or just a list of astonishingly goofy sounds like BLAGGITY BLAGGITY and GLIBBITY GLOBBITY.

Cleverly irreverent and irresistibly silly, The Book with No Pictures is one that kids will beg to hear again and again. (And parents will be happy to oblige.)
