EDIT: Huge, enormous, numerous thanks to everybody who donated. We surpassed our goal total of £500 and raised £1200 for Save the Children.
Every Christmas at d.fferent towers we pick a cause and pour cash and festive goodwill in its direction. 2015 is no different.
We sat down to pick our cause and couldn’t think of anything more pressing than the refugee crisis. Especially the children who find themselves scared, alone, and far from home.
Every Friday between 6th November and 4th December we’re doing a little something to rack up pennies and pounds for the cause: Friday Fundraisers to Save the Children.
- having a duvet day (6th November: Raised £54.95)
- baking cakes (13th November. Raised £146.27)
- staging Man vs Food challenges (20th November. Raised £135.73
- and auctioning our beloved directors (27th November. Raise £552.75!!!)
And that’s just for a start.
On top of our shenanigans, we’re sharing undignified snaps and cake-based gossip on our social media feeds in the hopes that you’re inspired to part with your cash too.
This is your chance.

How Save the Children will help
They work with children along the routes refugees are taking, as well as in the countries they are fleeing.
In countries like Turkey, Greece, Italy and Croatia, Save the Children provide kids and their families with essentials like food and shelter, as well as keeping them in supplies of soap and toilet paper.
In the EU countries sheltering the refugees, the charity runs programmes to keep the children safe and lobby politicians to improve conditions.
Unaccompanied children receive language training as well as childhood necessities like school materials and toys. As well as the essentials these kids need a bit of normality, and the charity works hard to provide that.
