Saturday 10th November, 2012
2:00pm to 5:00pm
Our session will explore how we can use badges to reward employee volunteers in companies, and use these badges to raise more money for charitable causes.
We know that people who volunteer are more likely to give more money to charitable causes. We also know lots of companies that want to promote volunteering among their staff and customers. We think we can get more people volunteering if companies recognise volunteers and award them a badge, and we think that the badge itself can develop into a currency that will generate more money for charitable causes.
Session participants will be invited to design a badge for employee volunteers, which can be awarded, shared and rewarded in different ways to meet the objectives of volunteers, their employers, and the charities they support.
We will share with participants our experience of 2 years engaging with companies, government and individuals around volunteering and charitable giving, and provide an opportunity to take part in an initiative that aims to rid the world of the excuse “I can’t afford to give to charity”.
