Contribute Positively

Our aim is to empower people from all walks of life to get better prepared for all kinds of emergencies at minimal cost. This needs a lot of positive energy because talking about crises that should never turn into a disaster can be tricky. Fear is a poor motivator, not very useful at inspiring potentially life saving preparatory actions. This is why we use an intuitive, fun bingo game element and a positive psychology approach with humour and a light touch throughout the campaign. Please keep it that way.

  • use the wrong hashtag; in the UK please use the full #30days30waysUK
  • ‘hard sell’ anything! Instead, post links to quality free information and resources only
  • ‘soapbox’ or ‘spam’, no one likes nuisance. Please treat our hashtag #30days30waysUK like an interesting and lighthearted discussion amongst new and old friends rather than just blasting your content. Welcome people, encourage engagement positively.
