April's Nonprofit Blog Carnival: A Celebration of SOFII

It's time to share April's Nonprofit Blog Carnival. I'd like to say to a big thank you to everyone who got in touch.  It's definitely a case of quality over quantity, but in the coming weeks there will be great new content on SOFII from the following people - n.b. all links are to the contributor's websites.

Roger Craver from the Agitator is sharing some of his archive and curating a history of social movements in the U.S.A.

Giles Pegram CBE will be revealing some of the secrets behind the NSPCC 'Full Stop' campaign.

Michael Rosen describes how much a good story is worth.

Freelance copywriter Robbie Rae will be contributing a direct mail classic to the 'How I wrote it' series.

Concern Worldwide Ireland working with Open Fundraising shared how they revamped their welcome process for new face to face donors.

Reinier from 101 Fundraising has kindly shared their fantastic archive for future SOFII exhibits.

It's still not too late to contribute an article. So if that has whetted your appetite then do get in touch.
