I think the above is pretty self explanatory. You may even have heard about it already. But what you might not know is that a crack team from Open is consulting with the show’s producers and the ACLU to make it as effective as possible.

 

I can’t tell you too much more. I’m probably being hacked as I type this. So just head over to Facebook, like the page and get ready to see something very, very special.

Open’s mission is to bring people together to change the world. So when our friends at Apple asked us to help them introduce Apple Pay to UK charities, it wasn’t a difficult decision. Nor, to be fair, was it a difficult process.

 

We emailed our friends, acquaintances and some people we wished we knew better from a bunch of amazing organisations. Then, once we had them all in a room together, Tim did a little speech and the folks from Apple blew everyone’s socks off with the possibilities.

 

And today, just in time for Comic Relief and, we hope, some big appeals for South Sudan, Apple Pay opened its platform for UK charities.

 

We’re happy to have helped. And we’re even more excited about what we’ll be able to do now that a whole lot of friction just got removed from a whole bunch of donors…

 

Watch this space…

heartbreak

 

This February, Valentine’s Day got everyone at Open in the mood…

 

Not like that, you cheeky blog reader, you.

 

In the mood for raising some cash for charity, of course!

 

Keen to keep in the spirit of the season, we capitalised on our co-workers’ relationship failures with an exciting game we creatively titled ‘Guess the Ex 2017’.

 

Think ‘Guess the Baby Photo’ but with more crushed hopes and dreams. And sorry everyone, but definitely not as cute.

 

Our winning guesser, who should probably get a job at Match.com or something, matched over half the couples correctly, and nominated Refuge as their charity of choice.

 

As fundraisers go, it sort of went off like the perfect relationship – bit of fun, we learnt something about each other and crucially, no one got hurt.

 

Hopefully we all encounter enough heartbreak in 2017 to do it all again next year…

 

Yours forever swiping right,
