From today....you tweet, we donate!

Last year we decided not to send Christmas cards in favour of sending everyone an email card and then donating money to East Anglian Children's Hospices (EACH). This year, we decided to take things a stage further, by donating to the Childrens Society every time our Christmas message is tweeted via Twitter.
The Christmas card is in the form of an email, which then asks readers to click-though to a specially designed page featuring an illustrative Further fund-raising Christmas tree.
Tweeting the message on the page pushes up the total that the Further team will donate to The Childrens Society by 10p per tweet - and as the total reaches pre-determined milestones, the tree lights up accordingly.
The page also links off to a special 'JustGiving' page for any readers who wish to make a cash donation themselves to the worthy cause.
The email went out this morning, and we'll be keeping you up to date with how things are going, but for now, why not take a look at the page for yourself at http://charity.further.co.uk
