Last year, over 120 organisations came together to reaffirm their commitment as a community that on Yom HaShoah we will keep the memory of the Shoah alive and honour our survivors and refugees. We want you and others from across the community to come together again to offer your support and association with Yom HaShoah UK, taking place on Sunday 15 April at The National Holocaust Memorial, The Dell, Hyde Park.
To do this, we need your help!
Please let us know by replying to firstname.lastname@example.org which of the following areas your organisation can help us with and be a part of Yom HaShoah 2018:
|Our Ask||Your Action|
|Active social media drive using @yomhashoahuk and #weareone||To promote Yom HaShoah UK through your social media accounts. We'd need this once in February, once in March and again throughout April before Yom HaShoah. We will send you across everything you need.|
|Special email blast to your members regarding Yom HaShoah - both stand alone and in your regular communications||To send at least one email to all of your members around mid-March explaining why it is so important for your organisation to be a part of Yom HaShoah UK and follow up the week before Yom HaShoah reminding your members of the event on 15 April.|
|Promote Yom HaShoah at your events, in your publications or in your communities||To promote or write about Yom HaShoah at your events or in your publications between now and Yom HaShoah such as your community Pesach magazine, weekly newsletters or announcements in your community.|
|Recruit & send or volunteer at the Yom HaShoah commemoration||For you, colleagues or members to volunteer with us on the day. This could be for stewarding, assisting survivors, escorting VIPs or helping with the community fair.|
|Put up promotional posters & deliver flyers to shops, offices, synagogues and community centres||Prior to Yom HaShoah to help us out putting up promotional materials. This would be over the second half of March and the first week of April.|
|Promote Yom HaShoah through your personal networks||Help us by feeding into your own network whether through social media or more traditional forms to ensure as many people know about Yom HaShoah as possible.|
|Help financially towards the event||Yom HaShoah UK can only be successful through the kind generosity of our community. A donation, however small would be greatly appreciated from your organisation to ensure success.|
|Help with gifts in kind such as staff time or other expertise||Do you or someone in your organisation have expertise which you think could be beneficial or do you have some spare staff time to give? Let us know as soon as you can.|
|Something we haven't thought of||Let us know if your organisation is able to commit to Yom HaShoah for this year for something that isn't on this list. Please state in the box|
In the meantime, send us across your most up to date logo for the Yom HaShoah UK website, banners and brochure, who will be your contact person for Yom HaShoah and the above form with your committed actions.
We look forward to working together.
