The SurveyOnTablet team is to launch three different initiatives to raise money for the international water aid charity Just a Drop. The fundraising activities will take place during World Travel Market (WTM) between November 4-7, 2013 at the ExCel Centre, London. The funds raised at this year’s WTM will help bring a lasting supply of clean, safe water to primary school children in two schools in Kenya.
SurveyOnTablet aims to ensure maximum effectiveness of its fundraising attempts and will therefore triple its efforts by collecting donations on site, holding a raffle and having a group dress up for charity. During the four days of the popular WTM event, the company staff will be wearing themed clothing in support of Just a Drop. This way, the team hopes to stand out against the predominantly formal dress style backdrop and attract more donations for the charity. SurveyOnTablet will also keep a collection tin on its stand and actively invite clients and passers-by to donate money. In addition, in tune with its tech background, the company will carry out a raffle on a tablet. Participants will have to offer a minimum £2 donation to enter the raffle and their details and the draw will be completed on SurveyOnTablet devices.
As a company creator of customer feedback software and hardware, SurveyOnTablet has also offered to run a free survey for Just a Drop so as to help the charity improve its future work and the productivity of its fundraising efforts. Just a Drop will use the free service at next year’s World Travel Market show.
Visitors and participants of WTM can support the efforts of SurveyOnTablet by visiting Stand TT564 at WTM’s Travel Tech Show, being on the lookout for SurveyOnTablet ’s quirky looking staff or by going to Just a Drop’s stand in the Central Boulevard.
Ivo Dimitrov, Founder and MD of SurveyOnTablet said, “Being no stranger to supporting charity work, our team was deeply moved by Just a Drop’s cause. It simply is appalling to know that every 20 seconds a child dies from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. We hope that our sponsorship will bring awareness to this problem and enable Just a Drop to continue to transform lives.”
Kelly Railton, Head of Fundraising and Communications at Just a Drop said, “We are so appreciative of the support shown by SurveyOnTablet at WTM this year. The funds raised will ensure that the lives of many children in Kenya will be significantly changed for the better. A sincere thank you and we look forward to working with you both this year and during future World Travel Market shows.”
