It’s that time again… what’s coming up in the world of Digital PR next week.
From Pancake Day to Random Acts of Kindness Day, here are some upcoming opportunities you might want to utilise to your advantage.
SINGLE AWARENESS DAY, 15TH FEBRUARY
Don’t want your campaign to get lost amongst all Valentine’s Day content? It might be worth focusing on targeting singles instead of couples. After all, this is another major demographic that other brands are probably missing out on when targeting only those in a relationship with their Valentine’s Day content.
Whilst the acronym may spell out SAD (pretty ironic, right?), Singles Awareness Day is not about feeling upset or lonely, but rather celebrating your single status and focusing on yourself.

PANCAKE DAY, 16TH FEBRUARY
Pancake Day is one of those days that you never realise is coming up right until the last second. Well, here’s your official reminder that Pancake Day, aka Shrove Tuesday, is on February 16th this year.
Each year many use the day as an excuse to stuff their faces with their favourite pancakes and toppings (we sure do!). Best suited for food-related experts, content themes include top ways to flip (you could even find the UK’s top flipper), the nation’s favourite toppings, or whether people have them as their main meal or dessert (this proved to be an interesting discussion here at c3!).

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS DAY, 17th FEBRUARY
If there’s anything we all need a little bit more of at the moment it would have to be kindness.
Celebrated each year on February 17th, Random Acts of Kindness Day is a versatile occasion meaning it could work for a number of different industries. From offering top tips, or even running a competition to find the UK’s kindest person – there’s so much that can be done!
