Helping every child: our top social media posts of 2018
From joining with world-famous magician Dynamo to share stories of Syrian refugee children, to launching a brand new movement to #WriteTheWrong and get every child into school, we have made a lot of noise on social media in 2018.
2018 has been a big year in the fight to give every child the best start in life.
But without the support of our social media followers amplifying our messages and encouraging people to take action, we would not have made the steps forward in our aim to get every child in school and learning.
Here’s a look at some of our most popular social media posts of 2018.

"Everyone should be afforded the opportunity to receive the education that they want – but more importantly the education they have the right to receive. And for women and girls in developing countries, this is vital. Providing them with access to education is the key to economic and social development. Because when girls are given the right tools to succeed, they can create incredible futures, not only for themselves but also for those around them."
With sore feet and aching muscles we’ve made it to the #WalkForTheirworld finish line with @arabellaweir @kathylette @sarahbrownuk. Thanks to all who have supported us – the money raised will go to @theirworld's work to ensure every child can go to school. pic.twitter.com/UtQ9fXRKM1
