The Grow Global Foundation helps charities and social enterprises take advantage of the opportunities digital marketing has to offer. The running costs of the foundation are covered by Grow Global and all time on projects is donated for free. We want to give back to the communities we work within.
We currently review websites and give solid recommendations for improvement so they can attract more visitors to their websites and convert those who do visit into supporters, volunteers or donors. We give all our time free of charge to our Grow Global Foundation projects.
We are currently looking for a charity to work with during the summer of 2017. We’ll select a project where there is a bit of a story and a personal touch, as that’s an integral part of how we like to do business. It will also be a charity where they are open to learning and improving. If there is an international dimension, all the better!
Grow Global Gives … to Create
Create Arts uses the power of the creative arts to transform the lives of society’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people by enabling them to develop creativity, learning, social skills and self-esteem.
We met Create at an art show in Horse Guards Parade on the Mall in London. I’d been invited by Julia, one of my best friends, who’d gone along to Create music workshops with her autistic music-loving teenage daughter. Julia was a big fan of Create and when we met Nicky, the Chief Executive, we were bowled over by her enthusiasm and dedication and the sheer number of art and music projects she and Create were supporting. It was their 10th birthday and they made an appeal for 10 of anything. We thought we could give them 10 recommendations to improve their website. Which is what we did! It was perfect timing as they were about to go through a website revamp.
Grow Global Gives … to Woodland Heritage
Woodland Heritage is passionate about anything to do with wood and woodlands. They support individuals and organisations who are engaged in research, education and spreading the word about the crucial part forests play in our lives. They offer support by funding projects, awards and travel bursaries. Their patron is none other than Prince Charles, so they’re in top company.
Their current fundraising focus in on saving Oak trees, suffering from Acute Oak Decline. Having grown up in a village called Fair Oak, I was more than willing to help out and give them a few recommendations to take to their new website, as they were about to launch a new one.
Grow Global Team Gives … to Cancer Research
All of us have friends and families who have been touched by cancer. We know we need to support Cancer Research as 1 in 3 of us will be affected by cancer in our lifetimes. Things are getting so much better and detection and survival rates are rising. But sometimes it doesn’t work out and we still remember our Mums, Dads and friends who we’ve lost and miss so much …
