A few weeks ago SOFII featured a case study on the Abortion Support Network's superb mailing featuring donor voices that was featured at I Wish I'd Thought of That (IWITOT) 2018. We are thrilled that this campaign has garnered lots of interest. Jamie McCloskey, SolarAid's head of programme fundraising, says ‘With one member of full time staff, they transformed their organisation!
