Now Some Beautifully Creative Ways to Use Pinterest

Since I wanted to leave you with some beautiful ways to use Pinterest. Virtual collaboration is an awesome way to use this tool:

  • Group Think – Create a board and invite your committee members via email, then have them pin inspirational things to get the next brainstorm rolling.
  • Pin a Vote – Have supporters submit photos via email of their favorite part of your nonprofit or volunteer experience then have people vote for their favorites. This could used to help your team decide on tough choices for an event – which centerpieces or get a reading on what type of food to serve.
  • Fundraising Shopping List – Laundry lists are a great way to engage donors, why not add a beautiful visual to make it truly inspirational. Also, very handy for an in-kind wish list. Beware of the number of clicks it takes to get to your donation form. Make it as easy as possible!
