An Hour Or So – The initiative connecting businesses with their customers in the aid of charity
The scheme was launched by local award-winning Entrepreneur, Speaker, Author and multiple Business Owner Serena Fordham back in 2016 with the intention of helping local businesses to connect, communicate and grow, while donating to local worthy causes.
And it’s been a huge success!
How does the scheme work?
It’s pretty simple really – businesses offer their services to potential customers in return for a charitable donation.
The business is likely to benefit from the scheme through potentially gaining more clients, wider publicity and by increasing the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of the business.
The customer is able to ‘try before they buy’ without a service costing its full value, which they might not otherwise be able to afford, trying out the service to see if it works for them before they commit. They donate to any of the charities supported by the scheme.
And the charities benefit from a cash donation to help fund their valuable work within the local community.
So, what’s the relationship between An Hour Or So and Glow Virtual Assistants?
Well, Serena Fordham is the Founder of both!
You can find out more about both on their websites:
Why relaunch the initiative?
To ensure that the momentum behind An hour Or So is maintained and the initiative also grows in the future, the scheme has recently relaunched by Glow Virtual Assistants.
They are keen to see such a worthwhile scheme develop and grow both locally and beyond – especially as it’s such a great way to be able to support charity in a straightforward way.
How can you help boost the scheme?
To help drive the scheme and improve An Hour Or So for everyone involved moving forwards, there is a Crowd Funding profile that you can also donate to, which as well as helping the scheme to connect more businesses to it’s customers, also means more charities will benefit.
There are also some valuable gifts that will be extra benefit to businesses to thank local business owners for their support with the Crowd-Funding campaign.
