Description

The Movember Foundation was established 17 years ago in Australia by a couple of buddies looking to change the face of men's health. So many men die far too young every year but thanks to the support, funding, and awareness that Movember has brought about that's changing!

Last year was absolutely incredible, The UL managed to fundraise nearly €4500 for such an important cause. This is year is going to be tough but I've got some amazing plans already in the works. I need a team of enthusiastic volunteers to make it happen!
 

Is training provided?: Yes

Tasks that the volunteer(s) will be expected to undertake:

It's super duper easy but I'll run you through some of the basics

  • First go like and follow the social media accounts, you can find links in the website here https://linktr.ee/MovemberUL
  • Next press the sign up button through the link above, create an account and join the team. There's a video tutorial on the Instagram!
  • Choose a challenge, grow a mo, run 60km, whatever self driven activity you wanna do!
  • On your Movember profile you'll find a button that says "create Facebook fundraiser" click that and follow the steps. It's super important you make the fundraiser this way so it syncs with your Movember account!
  • Invite a few friends to donate, or if you're a bit shy just share the page with a post saying what you're doing. Try to get some friends to join the team as well every little helps
  • Its not all about the money though, spreading awareness is also super important. So don't worry if you get little to no donations, regularly sharing the social media posts and tagging the accounts in your own content also makes a huge difference!
  • There's going to be a couple of virtual events throughout the month, details to come very soon! Try and attend a few and invite some friends to those, they'll be free.
  • Finally, have some fun! Movember was created to tackle a serious problem but that doesn't mean you can't have fun the while you're doing it!

Skills required for this role:

Knowing how to use social media!

Details of time commitment needed for role:
Everything is done in your own time, if you’re an early riser and wanna go for a 5k run at 6am that counts. If you wanna share the social media content for 10 minutes before you to bed every night, that’s an hour you’ve got by the end of the week. If anyone gets in touch to help me take on some extra work that’ll count as well.

Minimum time commitment per week:
1 hour p/week
