Why small #charities shouldn’t be overlooked

June 17, 2014

So, it’s small charity week and we decided to lend our support to the countless small charities out there by examining how difficult it is for them to make the impact and difference they want.

May 7, 2014

#Charities & #SocialMedia DO mix  Charities often struggle when it comes to marketing – they either need a wealthy benefactor to fund it, be a household name so donations can be syphoned off to different budgets, or to rely on a partnership or two with well-known brands that will tell their story for them. Social […]


April 29, 2014

I was talking to a friend recently about life and work and we both agreed that there are too many people stuck in a job they don’t like. This is a real shame. Life is full of unexpected twists and turns and it is a waste spending years, months, even days doing something which you […]
