                                                      people.
                                                         Snapchat’s two most
                                                      famous functions are
                                                      “Snaps” and “Stories”.
                                                      The former is a quick
                                                      photo you can take with

                                                      messaging to friends, but
              AWARENESS WEEK                          then it deletes itself after
                                                      10 seconds. When it
                                                      comes to Snaps, you can

                   will take place on
              Saturday 31st March                     before they disappear
                                                      forever by saving them to your Memories tab.
              to Saturday 7th April                      On the surface these two functions seem pretty youth-focused
                                                      and probably more used by teenagers sending each other selfies.
                                                      For a charity like ours we feel it can leverage Snapchat to give a
                                                      creative spin on visual storytelling.
                 Kidneys                                 For example, if we have got an event happening, we would
             & Women                                  collect a few Snaps to Stories or Memories that show off how

                                                      much fun everyone’s having and what a big impact the event is
                   Health                             having on the community.
                                                         Also on Snapchat you have the option of ‘filters’ which would

                                                      be considered to be its defining and dynamic feature. They allow
