#IamABLE celebrates what young people are ABLE to do and how the projects we fund transform young lives. On Tuesday 8th September 2015 we held our first ever social media campaign #IamABLE on Twitter and Facebook. 55 project partners shared how the projects we funded helped to transform a young person’s life.
Our project partners who were awarded grants in 2014 and 2015 were invited to share a case study and photo of a young person supported by our grant. These inspiring stories were added to our website using the ABLE framework to illustrate the different projects we support – Achieve it, Beat it, Live it and Experience it.
On the #IamABLE day our project partners tweeted and shared the stories of their young people on Facebook using #IamABLE, and enthusiastically retweeted other project partners’ stories and encouraged their supporters to get involved.
Our Facebook and Twitter feeds were filled with lots of inspirational #IamABLE stories and photos which reached many new people and charities. It was a fantastic celebration of what young people are able to do.
None of this could have been possible without the fantastic work of our project partners which their case studies and photos highlighted. Here are just a few of the inspiring stories shared on the #IamABLE day.
