Do you own or work for a small business and would like to support the EBA? We’ve teamed up www.workforgood.co.uk to make this quick and easy for you!
Published 14th August 2020
As times are difficult and unpredictable for so many of us, and the way we are all doing things seems to be changing all the time, we have been thinking of new and innovative ways of keeping our vital fundraising going. This is especially the case since a lot of our events this year have had to sadly be cancelled or postponed.
We have come up with a new way for you to support the vital work we do for the baby units by supporting us through your business. We’ve teamed up with small business fundraising platform Work for Good (www.workforgood.co.uk ) who make it super easy for you to donate to us through the sales of your products and services and help us keep track of your wonderful support.
Donating to us through the platform also gives you the opportunity to set up a Work for Good page to publicise your giving story to your customers, clients and employees and shout about your support for us.
Please support us today, set up your first pledge or make a one off donation here by setting up a small business account online and using our unique referral code of 7W187P8V
We understand when you run or work for a small business that you’re pulled in all manner of directions and we are therefore even more grateful if you’d consider supporting us through your venture and donate just by doing the work you already do.
If you would like to donate either £ or % of your product or service sales to us, please do this via our Work for Good page. We use Work for Good as they sort out the legal contract required for this type of fundraising to happen, saving you heaps of time and helping us keep track of your support.
We were especially touched to find out today that the inspiration to set up Work for Good came from a premature and poorly baby, as the platform was set up by new Dad Rupert Pick, who was inspired to give back to the amazing hospital staff who cared for his daughter Ottie. Ottie was born 10 weeks premature, weighing less than 3lbs and with two rare genetic conditions that affect both her bones and her heart. When Rupert decided to donate the fees from his next workshop to the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, it made him wonder about all the wonderful things that could happen if only more businesses chose to give through their work. You can watch a video and read more about the inspiration behind Work for Good here. We at the EBA really think that finding Work for Good to help us in our fundraising was meant to be!
The Early Birth Association are registered on Virgin Money Giving,
where you are able to make a donation directly to us and set up your
own fundraising page for any events that you do.
