So.... as Christmas is fast approaching and your desks will be filling up with gifts we decided to do something a little different this year. We are all so very lucky in our industry, we get to do wonderful things in wonderful places with talented and inspiring people. So we wanted to give a little back.
You only have to watch the news for a second to know how many people in the world are struggling right now, so rather than sending out gifts to you, our wonderful clients, we decided to donate the Chrismas Gift budget to two organisations that work tirelessly to help those in need. This doesn’t mean we don’t love you its just we wanted to share the love! .
We donated a total of £5000.00 split between two of our favourite charities. Medicine Sans Frontiers and Save the Children. Thank you SO much for your generosity of forgoing your gift to help those in need. Here is a breakdown of where the money goes. The money has specifically gone to the growing Syrian Refugee Crisis. If you would like to make further donations to Medicins Sans Frontieres or Save The Children here are the links:
Here are some examples of where the money is going:
· £3.50 could provide food for a day for a child fleeing conflict and extreme poverty, and sleeping in camps or outdoors. This includes milk, bread, food for young children as well as non-perishable foods and a source of protein, such as meat
· £30.00 could provide a mother and children who are sleeping in camps or in the open air with a hygiene kit, so they can keep clean and healthy, with diapers, rash cream, baby wipes, soap, sanitary pads, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste and sunblock.
· £80.00 could provide a family of five fleeing conflict and extreme poverty a 'on-the-move’ shelter kit (including sleeping materials, a decent tent, torch and batteries)
Please give generously. Have a very Happy Christmas!
