As the holiday season comes around again, RT get ready for their first Christmas hackathon. In aid of Ability Counts, RT are donating their time and services to the UK-based not-for-profit organisation to promote the incredible work they do for young, disabled football players. Watch a teaser film on Friday 11th December.
What happens to all your Christmas cards after the festive period is finished? Do you keep them on display for the rest of the year? Do you cut and paste them in a scrapbook? Fashion them into a skirt? If you’re anything like us, probably not.
This year we thought we’d do things a bit differently, rather than the usual Christmas mailout, and save some paper while we’re at it.
We are embarking on a challenge: a one-night hackathon for an incredible organisation a little less heard of. We will be donating a whole night of our services to Dexter Sports Ability Counts, in an attempt to renovate their website, create marketing collateral, promote their mission, rejuvenate their brand, and produce a short film.
As you can imagine, this means one late night, plenty of cups of tea, and hours of intense work delivering results, both on the night and surrounding it. Marketing budgets for not-for-profit organisations are near enough non-existent, so we are delighted to donate our time and introduce their fantastic work into the realm of digital marketing.
How can you help? Well, in return, instead of sending us a card this year, share any of updates on the night and watch our video. Or, even better, introduce a friend to Ability Counts.
We will be live tweeting the action on Thursday 10th December, from 6pm onwards, and a short teaser of our film will be live the next morning at 9am. So, follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with how we’re getting on.
