#share7 Campaign Smashes Fundraising Target

andy CTS copyBrighton-based digital marketing agency Search Seven today announces that their fundraising campaign #share7 has raised a total of £20,000, to be shared amongst seven charities.

Search Seven, who pledge to give 7% of their profits to charity or the local community, set an ambitious target to raise £17k across seven different charities in 2018, in celebration of their seventh anniversary. This meant raising the total amount that they had raised in their previous six years, in one.

Gavin Willis, Managing Director of Search Seven says: “I’m blown away that we have exceeded our target and raised a total of £20k in support of seven fantastic charities. We sent out an email to each charity and told them what we were going to give to them. Their responses of gratitude and stories of what they are going to do with the money had me in tears as we are now understanding the real impact that #share7 will have on people’s lives.”

The seven charities involved are grateful for Search Seven’s fundraising:

  • “The funds raised by Search Seven will make a huge impact in the treatment of premature and sick newborn babies.” – The Trevor Mann Baby Unit, Rockinghorse
  • “We will commit Search Seven’s donation to helping vulnerable 16 to 25-year olds to move from crisis to independence.” – The Clock Tower Sanctuary
  • “With the money that you raised we can help pay for more people with dementia to access our National Dementia Helpline.” – Alzheimers Society
  • “Thanks to Search Seven… we are reaching more and more families with potentially life-saving information about Group B Strep.” – Group B Strep Support
  • “We have just started a campaign to raise enough money to provide a lifesaving operation to Gilipina – a young lady with a tumour behind her eyeball. [The money raised] will give Gilipina the funds to start her treatment, as well as help towards beds and books at both the primary and secondary school”– Nkuringo Primary & Secondary School, Uganda

Willis added: “We are a purpose-driven organisation and living proof that businesses can be successful whilst playing an active role in the local community.  We recently surveyed our clients and 9/10 of them feel proud of us for being a business that gives back. I will look back on #share7 in years to come with immense pride on the real change that we have helped to achieve through the campaign.”
