It then highlights the ease with which potential donors might spend £2 per month without thinking, when the same amount would make a huge difference to someone like Evie.The focus of the mailing is the eyes: it asks the reader to “look in her eyes and tell her that they need £2 more than she does.”Charlotte Tams, Campaigns Executive, British Red Cross said: “The mailing is very powerful and forces the prospective supporter to look at their own needs in comparison with those in dire situations. It is the most emotive regular giving pack the Red Cross has launched in recent years with strong visuals and copy. We expect it to be highly successful in eliciting regular gifts from the public.”The mail-out will be tested on 5 February 2004 both as a regular giving and cash ask. It will reach 41,000 prospects across the UK.last_img read more

Public urged to buy charity Christmas cards Tagged with: christmas Trading A group of charities and The Greeting Card Association have urged the UK public to buy charity Christmas cards this year and help raise an estimated £50 million for charity.According to the Greeting Card Association, the sale of greeting cards is the biggest source of income for charities at Christmas: more funds are raised by the sale of these cards than by any other individual product.However, they are concerned that reports that some charities receive little from the sale of their Christmas cards will put off the public from buying any charity cards.Sheila Morgan, Trading Manager at the British Heart Foundation, explained why they and charities throughout the UK are uniting to safeguard this method of fundraising.“It’s vital that the public understands how important charity cards are to charities this Christmas. They are a major source of revenue for charities and a great way for us to raise our profile in shops across the country.“Cumulatively the amounts and the benefits are enormous; we estimate Christmas cards are worth £50 million for charities each year in the UK. We want to reassure the public that however they choose to buy a charity card; whether it’s from a charity catalogue or shop, from a high street retailer or from a temporary card shop such as Cards for Good Causes, it’s still the best way to send Christmas greetings, keep in touch with family and friends and a great way to raise money for all of the charities involved. So please continue to support us in this way!”www.greetingcardassociation.org.uklast_img read more

We want to engage with our shoppers and see this commitment, without compromising our competitive pricing and efficient service, as the first step of our socially responsible insurance plan.”Lindsey Cape, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser for Sparks – The Children’s Medical Research Charity added: “This is an innovative and sustainable corporate commitment; it is a fantastic way to generate extra money for charities.”Notes for editorsInsurance4everyone.co.uk is owned by UK agency The Wonderful Web Ltd.The Wonderful Web aims to:– Generate more funds for the third sector by strategic affiliation, at no cost to charities– Enable consumers to buy competitive products and have a positive social impact by clicking on www.insurance4everyone.co.uk– The Wonderful Web is based at: Unit 2A03, South Bank Technopark, 90 London Road, SE1 6LNBased in Lewes, East Sussex Berkeley Alexander is part of one of the biggest insurance brokers in the UK, authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
