We will be setting up Facebook ads targeted at young people to encourage them to register to vote and vote Labour

UPDATE

A few people have asked if we have experience in targeted Facebook ads. YES WE DO! One of our team used to do them for a living for a big campaigning organistion, so we have the skills to put this ££ to good use!!!

MORE INFO

We’ve only got a few days left until the general election voter registration deadline on 22 May. The under 25 vote has the power to prevent Tory gains and Labour losses, if they turn up at the ballot box.

Many of us are campaigning hard on door-steps, on the high-streets, on university campuses - but we’re missing a trick.

During the referendum Vote Leave spend a whopping 98% of their budget on targeted social media ads. In the 2015 general election the Tories spent £1.2m on Facebook Ads alone - more than it spent on posters. This is where the real fight will be going down this General Election too.

Don't let the rich with vested interests swing this again.

Young people are so important this election. Those aged 18-25 are least likely to turn up to the ballot box on 8 June. Yet their voting power could change everything and could get the Tories out.

The problem is creating Facebook ads costs a lot of money, especially when targeting young people due to them being the most lucrative advertising demographic.

The odds are tough, but we can change this. Through targeting marginals where the youth population is high in the next few days, we can have a massive impact.

We need to reach them with targeted Facebook ads, so we need to raise some $$$. Please chip in what you can, because another Tory government is no joke. And we can all play a part in stopping it from happening.

Hey! We've raised £5k for our Facebook ads to get YP to vote in the seats Labour is most at risk of losing!!! Thank you so much to everyone for donating. YOU ARE AMAZING.

We are running test ads now from a new page we've created. But because it is new it needs some likes so that it doesn't look so suspect.

Please give us some social capital by liking the page!

Ps We are keeping the fundraising page open until Mon because more money means more and more YP reached.
