With a little bit of research and a lot of effort we gave that a try with Finally Family Homes' "A Hope And A Future" campaign.
May 15th 2019, our crowdfunding campaign launched on https://www.gofundme.com/HopeAndAFuture to open up a home for foster youth who are leaving the system with no family, home, or resources. We requested friends across social media to help us spread the word with the hashtag #AHopeAndAFuture.
On Twitter, you need a hashtag to be used 500 times in one hour to start to trend. Your best bet turns out to be getting that hashtag going between 12 am and 6 am.
Scheduling Tweets to go out within that time frame, and especially withing a specific hour can be helpful.
This article recommends starting a Twitter Party (sometimes also called a Tweet chat). This means creating a public conversation around a particular hashtag.
Hashtags. They can be helpful on all the big hitters - Instagram, Twitter, and even Facebook. But how do you get a hashtag to trend - or even to become popular? How do you use it to help grow awareness for your brand or cause?
We have a plan! A multi-phased, multi-faceted, holistic plan. And part one, we’re building hope and calling it "A Hope And a Future." May is Foster Care Awareness Month and we are launching phase one! In this phase of our plan, we are doing what we believe to be the most dire and important work first – building hope through connection and stability.

It is said that the teen years are the most hopeless for foster youth. At Finally Family Homes, we believe the most important work is restoring hope to aging out foster youth.
