Businesses urged to give away their Leap Day
Companies are being asked to give their staff time off on February 29 to help a good cause.
The UK's leading charity shopping website easyfundraising.org.uk is urging companies to join the “Give Away Your Leap Day” campaign and free up their workers for anything from a couple of hours to the whole day. Staff will be asked to give their time to a charity, fundraise or just run an errand for a neighbour.
easyfundraising.org.uk Managing Director Gary Thompson says: “Leap Day gives British bosses an extra day for free from their staff - so why not gift that day back to their staff and help a good cause? Giving something back is great for staff morale.
“Times are tough for businesses and charities but if businesses can inspire their workers to carry out a charity act, then everyone wins. Even if businesses can only spare an hour, that could make a difference to a lonely pensioner or a charity struggling to survive.”
easyfundraising.org.uk is the UK's leading charity shopping site, raising over £1 million per year for good causes.
