Virtual Events in 2020 Are Springing Up All Over The Place
With the Coronavirus Pandemic taking over the world and the future of the Events and Wedding Industry looking uncertain at this present time, organisers and event planners are having to look at new and creative ways to hold events.
My Special Event Is No Different
My Special Event is still there, they are still trading and adapting to the “new normal” we are adjusting to. My Special Event is promoting two virtual events this year to help two wonderful charities.
One Million Step Challenge
My Special Event is participating in the One Million Step Challenge raising money for Diabetes UK. This event takes place between the 1st of July and the 30th September 2020, and all monies raised go to the Diabetes UK Charity to support the marvellous work they do for people with this condition. This means this type of challenge is ideal for a virtual event as you can do it on your own or with others (whilst social distancing!) and out in the fresh air too.
There Are Health Benefits Too!
Not only raising money for this charity but raising awareness of how healthy it is to walk, run, jog and how activities like this sponsored or not can help you to be come a healthier you.
Diabetes UK is encouraging members of the public to take up the challenge and to walk them, jog them or dance them. Whatever these people feel comfortable doing as long as they are doing it in a safe and happy way.
Log Steps – Receive Rewards
All the steps which are taken each day are logged on the participants very own fundraising page and there are rewards to collect along the way. Rewards for donations received also and there is no minimum fundraising target although My Special Event like many other participants start with £100 target. One Million Steps is the suggested target for steps, but if you do more or less it doesn’t matter as every step you do, goes a long way to help the charity and their work.

My Special Event – How do I Find Out More About Events?
My Special Event has been in business for over 4 years and has covered a number of charity events for multiple charities. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, several events My Special Event had organised this year were unable to take place.
Zoe of My Special Event is looking into new and exciting ways to hold virtual events online for clients until such time events in person are permitted.
If you would like to learn about the types of events she covers them please visit her Services and Packages Section.
Alternatively you can contact Zoe in the following ways:

Don’t Let Covid-19 Stop Events Altogether!
My Special Event would like to point out that just because we are fighting this pandemic we shouldn’t give up on the Events Industry. We all need events in our lives to take place, a bit of light relief for the day to day jobs we do. We need to socialise (as and when we can) and we need to keep the Events Industry going.
Virtual doesn’t mean boring, there are a number of new, exciting and imaginative ways we can communicate with one another and most possibilities are possible, we just need to take time to thing them through.
So if you feel that hosting Virtual Events is for you then give it a go. What have you got to loose???
I am Interested in Organising my Own Virtual Event (Virtual Events) how do I begin?
If you would like to discuss your very own virtual event with My Special Event then you can contact Zoe Pniewski, Owner of My Special Event the following ways:

What is Next for My Special Event?
My Special Event will be hosting a second virtual event later on in the year. In September they will be hosting a Virtual Cupcake Event to raise money this time for The Alzheimer’s Society. On 6th September, members of the public are encouraged to spend a day baking a cake and sharing it with loved ones (if we are allowed within the Covid-19 regulations). The idea is once you have baked your cake, you take a photo of it and upload it to the FB event page that My Special Event has for the event or email it to email@example.com and it will be uploaded to the website. Cakes can be of all shapes and sizes and if you can, add a donation to the event, what it normally would of cost to sell your cake at a cake sale. So simply if you have pound or two spare, bake and cake, photo it and donate that spare change to help out people who need this charity.
BAKE – PHOTO – DONATE (its as simple as that)
My Special Event will be updating you on the event later on and also keep you updated on the progress for this event One Million Steps.
