Like us on Facebook and nothing will happen

Safe sex for seniors

Not your average safe-sex commercial

This is certainly not your average safe-sex commercial – and that’s primarily because it is aimed at the over 60s. The over 60s are sexually active more than ever before.  We are told that in Florida sexually transmitted infections in seniors have risen by 71%. While the footage is self-explanatory, I wish we were told […]

This summer, WaterAid asked people to back an exciting new appeal – The Big Dig – to bring clean water […]

Campaign of the month for September 2012: ‘Helpless’ by St John’s Ambulance

Just yesterday St John’s Ambulance launched their new video highlighting the importance of first aid knowledge.  The campaign draws parallels between deaths from cancer and deaths which could have been prevented with knowledge of first aid.  140,000 preventable deaths a year is a huge number indeed.  ‘Helpless’ is campaigns:worth:sharing‘s choice for Campaign of the Month […]
