Both Heather and I are social butterflies, at least here online! Not only are we excited to have MGR function as a space for you to find all the best charity-friendly patterns, along with charities in need RIGHT NOW, we're also branching out to social media platforms with the hope that you'll engage with us - share your favorite charities and patterns, follow us, comment, and so much more!
Here's a comprehensive list of where we are, social media speaking!
We've been quickly growing a pretty devoted Facebook following over the last few weeks, and couldn't be happier! When you click the "like" button, you'll receive blog updates, Insta-updates, as well as be able to share your favorite charities and patterns with us and the rest of the group. As we grow, the hope is to have some Facebook-only giveaways and features, so if you're on Facebook at least a few times a week, you'll want to visit our page!
It's an understatement to say I'm obsessed with Pinterest. I find myself hopping onto the phone app at least a few times a day to see what people are sharing, and to share some new pins to our MGR boards - it's too easy not to! Pinterest is perfect for MGR, helping us curate boards full of patterns and charities for like-minded crafters to find just the right thing exactly when they need it! Visit the MAKE | GIVE | REPEAT Pinterest page, click follow, and get in on the goodness!
We recently started a Ravelry group, and plan to share our monthly charity focuses there, as well as chat with other charity crafters in a more one-on-one way. I love the way groups quickly take on a life of their own over on Ravelry, and I can't wait to see how our group's personality develops! Join here!
I love that Instagram is a purely visual social media platform. While you can share words, the main focus is always on the photos. We're using our MGR Instagram account to showcase all of the amazing projects you all are making!! Every time you tag a project #makegiverepeat, we'll see it pop up in our feed, and the plan is to feature as many of these projects as we can!! So whether you're crafting for our charity of the month or the charity you give to regularly, we'd love to see what you're making!
While we're still growing our Twitter feed, the plan is for this space to not only feature what we're talking about here, but what other knitters and crocheters are doing as well! Twitter is a great way to stay quickly connected, and as we continue to post in this space, look for fun updates from the MGR community as well as shares from other Twitter feeds we love!
Finally, we are also on Bloglovin'!! I love using Bloglovin' to follow all my favorite blogs because it shows them to me on their actual web pages, so I can see the sidebar, formatting, and everything else. If you're a Bloglovin' person like me, you can add us to your daily reads!
Once a month we send out an update to our newsletter subscribers - this is the perfect way to keep up to date on our charity of the month, suggested patterns and yarn. Find new charities you want to support and learn how to donate your knits!
