Every year we support organisations that we think are doing some good in the world. If you know of an organisation that could do with our support, just drop us an email.

We're supporting Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
It’s a leap year – so we all get an extra day this year. And though that sounds great, many of us will actually be working that extra day for free (more info here). A new initiative yourfreeday.com aims to challenge this – and asks whether we’d like to donate this day of ‘free work’ to a worthwhile cause. And we thought, yes! So we’ve decided to donate our free day to the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity. They provide emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness across the UK.

We offered our time and some of our services too – so we’re doing two things on the day:
1. The ‘Battle of the Boutiques’
We’ll be taking over two of Rainbow Trust‘s shops in Leatherhead and Cheam and setting up a pop-up in Mold! We’ll split into three teams and do everything that’s legally possible to raise funds.

2. Communication Workshops
We’ll also run two of our workshops for the Rainbow Trust team – Spoken Tone of Voice and Writing to Improve Service — so the team can build even better relationships with the children and their families.

We’ll post updates and photos of the day on twitter, and on the yourfreeday.com website.
If you take part, we’d love to hear about it.

Comic Relief

Every day in the UK, around 5 million callers wait on-hold. We thought, how about using that not-so-good time, for the oh-so-good cause - Red Nose Day?

This year we worked with the team at Comic Relief to create messages featuring well-known voices like Su Pollard and Redd Pepper. Companies downloaded the free messages to make their on-hold funny for money and encourage callers to donate. Comic Relief raised over 78 million pounds this Red Nose Day, to help fund life-changing projects around the world.

Resonate

Resonate is a social enterprise, or in their words “An organisation that trades primarily for the benefit of society". You may also have heard them called Community Interest Companies.

It means that they're not run purely for profit and are regulated by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). They also have capped salaries. Part of their recruitment deal is that 10% of our fee goes to a charity of our choosing.

CALM

The biggest killer of young men is suicide and the Campaign Against Living Miserably, or CALM, is trying do something about it. They believe that if men felt able to ask for, and find, timely and appropriate help when they need it then hundreds of male suicides could be prevented.

They're the people we give our Resonate money to and last year Dan J did a fund raising gig for them. Fran has also given her time to help them out too.
