#SpreadWordSpreadLove campaign gets love on social media

The initiative was aimed at facilitating learning for less fortunate students.

MUMBAI: The Covid2019 pandemic was a particularly dark time for students. With schools shut, the only effective and safe mode of imparting lessons was through online lectures. But due to lack of adequate facilities, infrastructure or means of family income, not every child could avail the benefits of digital education. In light of this, influencer marketing company Word has teamed up with the NGO Teach for India for the #SpreadWordSpreadLove campaign, which aimed to facilitate education and amenities for the under-privileged students to achieve a brighter future.

Started on 9 November, this social-media driven donation drive culminated on World Kindness Day i.e. 13 November and was deemed to be a massive success.

Word x Teach For India encouraged their audience to be a part of something meaningful by giving students of Teach For India digital access to education. Not only that, almost 20+ content creators and celebrities like Dia Mirza, Aisha Ahmed, Tridha Chaudhary, Karan Dua, Sana Khan, Sameera Reddy and more stepped forward to #SpreadWordSpreadLove for this noble cause. All the proceeds garnered from this donation drive will go towards the students at Teach For India to make their year memorable by providing learning devices to facilitate online learning.                     

Word & Alchemy Group COO Dharika Merchant said, “This year has been a roller coaster ride for many – be it from losing a source of income to lacking basic amenities to learn at home. A lot of unfortunate families have had to face hardships owing to the pandemic which has hampered the growth and learning of students across the country. Therefore, this World Kindness Day, we at Word decided to do a kind gesture by influencing goodwill and bringing in the festivities for the under-privileged children. Our network of social media influencers also decided to contribute their bit to our noble cause and spoke about this initiative across their social media channels in order to encourage donations amongst their audience. We are thankful to each of one of you for stepping forward and contributing towards this cause because each donation counts. “

She further added, “#SpreadWordSpreadLove has been a massive success and highlights the essence of giving back to society. Logging thousands of keen donors from the campaign with people coming out in abundance to support this cause. This initiative is also an epitome of what a successful Instagram driven campaign looks like – with 66 per cent of the total donations rerouted through content pieces on Instagram.”

This campaign highlighted the travails faced by less fortunate students in attaining access to proper education and was aimed at raising awareness about giving back to society on the occasion of World Kindness Day.  The power of social media influencers coming forward to support this initiative has helped raise more donations because when the influencers talk – their followers really listen.
