Happy holidays from Liftshare!
As a tech-based business, we’ve decided to forego the traditional printed Christmas card this year, in favour of a digital number, featuring your favourite Social Enterprise… the Liftshare team!
Not wanting to disappoint, we’ve even got an all singing, all dancing, all snowing gif!
You can take a look at our e-card blog here.
But why have we decided to spare the postman an extra delivery this Christmas? Of course, we want to be a sustainable organisation, therefore saving the waste on printing and paper, but this year we’ll also be donating the cost we would have spent on Christmas cards this Christmas to Save the Children – that’s £700. Not only that, we’ll be participating in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day – we’ve asked our colleagues to wear their jolliest, woolliest number to work on Friday 15th December in exchange for £2 each. From traditional to novelty to twinkly, we’ll be sharing the best of the day on our social media pages.
Save the Children are an international charity who work to protect children, offer them a healthy start to life and an opportunity to learn – something that every child should have, as a given. They work across 68 countries around the world, including the UK, tackling child poverty, protection and rights, as well as health, hunger and education. In 2016, Save the Children helped a staggering 22 million children, including helping 345, 000 children to keep safe.
If you’d like to support us in raising money for Save the Children on Friday 15th December, you can get involved in a several ways:
🎄 Host your own Christmas Jumper Day whether it’s at work, your children’s school, amongst your friends and family, or even with your pets!
🎄 Get snap happy and take a picture of you and your Liftshare partner in your finest, festive knits – tag us or tweet us and we’ll share our favourites.
🎄 Get involved with the campaign on social media using #ChristmasJumperDay. You can also follow @ChristmasJumperDay on Facebook, @savethechildrenuk on Twitter and @Savechildrenuk on Instagram.
