International Day of Charity.
Everyone who works within the countryside sector knows how important our charities are. That's one of the reasons why CJS offers free advertising in CJS Weekly, we'd much rather the charities spent their hard earned money (your generous donations) on actually conserving something than on splashy advertising. You're reading CJS, you don't need to be told how wonderful RSPB or your local Wildlife Trust is to make you want to work for them - you already know.
CJS supports charities financially too. In 2020 we ran our short readership
survey and every completed survey went towards sponsoring plants with former
featured charity Plantlife
or birds with the Wildlife
Trusts. Details of the resulting adoptions and sponsorships were shared
with readers earlier this year and you can see all of them here.
CJS offers charities the opportunity to highlight their cause and good works in CJS in the form of articles highlighting a specific project or introducing the organisation to readers and also on a longer term basis as our Featured Charity of the year, which this year has been Campaign for National Parks, read about them and revisit the wonderful articles they've written for us this past year here. You can also catch up with our previous Featured Charities here from our first adopted snail at Jersey Zoo (now Durrell) to the Mammal Society which was featured last year.
If you'd like to nominate a charity to be our Featured Charity in 2022 or perhaps would like to provide a profile piece introducing your organisation please contact us, Features Commissioning Editor Amy is the best first contact, email her for more information.
