UK – In December 2019 the promotional products agency, Outstanding Branding, partook in a special charity campaign: Every day in December each team member of Outstanding Branding donated a variety of items such as food, clothing or sleeping bags as part of a Reverse Advent Calendar. The items were collected and given to two London-based charities, the Waterloo Foodbank and The Manna Centre, supporting homeless people in London.
Not only the Outstanding Branding staff were fully engaged, but both customers and suppliers got involved, too. Castelli, Essential Embroidery, Kingly, Laltex Promo, The Sweet People and The Umbrella Company among others donated food, clothing, calendars and sweets. CEO Sarah Penn commented: “Our team really got behind the idea – it’s wonderful to be able to help people in difficult situations to have a merrier Christmas.”
