podcast 19: Using Instagram for charity fundraising, with Creating for Good

“The magic happened within two hours one fine morning in Notting Hill. That’s what happens when you get a really motivated group of people together.”

“Creating for Good is a London based collective of creatives who use their passions and skills to make a difference in the lives of women, men and families affected by war, political discord and poverty. ” With a combined following of over 1.2 million. 

Through workshops, photo walks and individual tutoring we give 100% of all proceeds to charitable organizations which focus on providing skills to empower marginalized people and communities to secure a more sustainable future.”

I talk to Giulia, Jo, Elena, Jessica and Sarka from the team, to find out how it got started and what they’ve learned along the way.
