Love Syria and win tickets to Glastonbury

Posted by Suzanne Rodrigues Editorial Assistant in Oxfam's Digital Communications Team

31st May 2013

It's the hottest ticket of the summer, and as usual Glastonbury sold out ridiculously quickly this year. But there's one last chance for you to win a pair of tickets to the UK's biggest music festival.

All this summer, we'll be taking our new 'Love Syria' campaign everywhere from Glastonbury and Womad to Reading and Bestival. As part of the campaign, we're asking people at festivals to show their love for the people of Syria, who are suffering an unprecedented crisis. So to get 'Love Syria' started, we're simply asking you to share our new Syria infographic (which we'll be posting on social media on the morning of 4 June) on your social network of choice - retweet us, repin it on Pinterest, reblog it on Tumblr, or share it on Facebook and Google+, the choice is yours. 


Every share will not only count as an entry to our Glastonbury competition, but will also help to spread the word about how Oxfam is helping people across the region and why it's so important for us all to stand behind the people of Syria. 

So help us to kick off Love Syria with a bang, spread the word about the amazing work we're doing in the country, and as a bonus you and a friend could be checking out The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and hundreds more in a few weeks' time.

Watch the following spaces on Tuesday morning (4 June) and good luck!
