BIG BI TWEET 2015

Bi Visibility Day will be given a massive splash on Twitter this year with a pair of “Thunderclap” tweets. If you’re on twitter why not sign up for both?

An initiative of the Bi Visibility Day website, it is a co-ordinated tweet with lots of Twitter users joining in to all post the same message at the same time on the morning of Monday 23rd September in the UK & EU, and then again later in the day timed for twitterers in the USA and other parts of the Americas.

Thank you, bi volunteers

volunteer-weekIt’s Volunteers’ Week – starting today, hundreds of events will be taking place across the country to say thank you to volunteers, recognising the important contribution they make.

Almost all the bi community events, groups and support depend wholly on volunteer effort – how about taking this week as a prompt to say thanks to the people who make them happen.

Tweet, talk about it on facebook, drop them a card in the post, donate to their project, make them a cuppa…

Or maybe now’s the time to become a bi volunteer yourself?

BCN magazine has a feature with lots of ideas of ways you can get involved in bi volunteeringwhether you have ten minutes to spare just now, a day every week, or anything in between.
