“Business has a responsibility to give back to the community.” — Ben Cohen, Activist
It’s been a fast-paced, jam-packed and success-filled year at Webeo HQ, and now, Christmas is well and truly upon us! So, we wanted to shout about the fantastic charities Webeo has been working with throughout December 2019. Giving back is important to us as a brand and to each and every one of our team members — and what better time to do so than in the lead up to Christmas? Our Three Christmas Wishes campaign kicked off at the beginning of December — read on to find out all about the incredible charities we’ve been supporting.
The Royal Navy & Marines Children’s Fund is based in Portsmouth and helps families within the community. It’s the only charity dedicated to supporting children whose parents serve, or have served in the Naval Service. The fund supports children from Naval Families when they are in need, hardship or distress. From providing help and support to a mother of children with disabilities when undertaking activities, to supporting the costs associated with attending hospitals, the charity does amazing work. Webeo collected donations from the team and bought a total of 90 children’s Christmas presents. Remember to donate and discover how to get involved.
Save The Children is a charity that helps children stay safe, healthy and learning in more than 100 countries. The charity works to tackle problems like pneumonia, hunger, and protecting children in war, as well as wanting to ensure every child reaches their full potential so they can grow up to be who they want to be. The charity organizes Christmas Jumper Day — which took place on Friday 13 December 2019. Team Webeo came in dressed in all things festive and raised a total of £300 for the charity. Don’t forget — Save The Children organizes a number of fundraisers and events you can get involved in.
The LifeHouse is a kitchen, resource and support center that serves hot food in Albert Road, Southsea. Open every week for hot breakfasts on Wednesdays from 9am and hot dinners on Thursdays from 7pm, their aim is to show that whatever the circumstances you’re in, there is a way out and help for you. They welcome everybody including the homeless, rough sleepers, underhoused, sofa surfers, those feeling disconnected or/and not so well in themselves, lonely and lacking friendship. Meals are completely free but those with the means can make a small donation if they wish, or bring something nice to share. The LifeHouse also offers support for addiction and helps with therapy, job applications, clothes, toiletries, haircuts and more.
During the week commencing 16 December, Webeo organized a team-wide clothes and food drive, asking employees to bring in fresh and non-perishable food, durable and waterproof clothes, sleeping bags, shoes, coats and underwear for the fantastic charity. Team members are gathering necessities as we speak, ready to share them with those in need this Christmas. Keep your eyes peeled on social to see our grand total — and remember to donate what you can!
We hope our charitable efforts have helped spread some Christmas cheer this December. From all the team at Webeo, we wish you a Merry Christmas. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2020.
