We’re excited to announce our first annual fundraising challenge to Hull and East Yorkshire.
This year we’re raising money for Emmaus Hull and East Riding. Emmaus work hard to help homeless people off the streets and back into society.
There are many people this year that will be left on the streets, hungry and cold, without anywhere to call home. Many of them will be alone through the festive season.
That’s why we’ve set this challenge to the people of Hull and East Yorkshire.
We’re challenging you to donate just £1 through our fundraising page (or more if you can spare it). That £1 may not seem like much, but when we work together we can achieve great things.
Together We Are Hull
Our motto for this year’s fundraiser is “Together We Are Hull”. We know that £1 each doesn’t sound like a lot to give, and that it won’t make a difference. But we also know that Hull and East Yorkshire has one of the best community spirits in the UK. We know that together we can make a huge difference.
Take a moment to think how many people live on your street. If each person gave just £1 it could change the life of someone that hasn’t got anywhere to call their own.
Alone we can do good things, but together we can do great things. Together we can make the change. Together we are Hull.
How Can We Help?
We’ve set up a fundraising page through Virgin’s Money Giving, which you can make donations to. 100% of the proceeds generated through that page will go to Emmaus Hull and East Riding.
The best way you can help make a difference (other than donating) is by spreading the word. Spread the word to all your family and friends.
Calling All Businesses
We’re planning some fun competitions for businesses in Hull and East Yorkshire. We’re also looking for some generous businesses to donate prizes for this event!
All businesses that participate will get listed on our Grand Total scoreboard, with the business raising the most getting a year’s free advertising on Hull.Today (and a premium listing in the Hull.Today Directory).
Why not involve your entire workforce? Hold a non-uniform day, or if you have casual dress, hold a uniform day! Make a money trail from one side of the office to the other with all your spare change! See if you can make more than your competition!
Where To Donate?
Please donate £1 or as much as you can! You can donate through the Virgin Money Giving page. Or donate directly in one of Emmaus Hull And East Riding’s shops!
