With the festive season fast approaching, Bizcommunity.com would like to challenge our readers, clients and partners to think of those less fortunate. Help us raise funds, bedding and toys for our two chosen charities and the company raising the most will be given two free press office releases for the festive season, in the industry of your choice, to promote whatever you like.
A follow-up roll-of-honour story here on Biz will have all the participating organisations' names and links to websites, and the winning contributor will get a special mention and two press office releases of its own to use as it likes.
How to participate:
Email Biz Charity Challenge 2012 on to state your commitment.
Start your collection by gathering from staff, clients, friends and whomever you can.
Cash contributions may be deposited straight into the charities' accounts; details and reference codes will be supplied on request, so that the winner may be tracked.
Send weekly photos of your progress for social media postings.
Once the goods and/or money have been collected, deliver to the Biz Cape Town office by 30 November or to the Johannesburg office by 28 November. The Jozi office will forward on to head office.
