We’re lucky at itison - we get to put smiles on people’s faces every day by giving them incredible experiences. itison us goes one further, and makes sure those same amazing experiences can be enjoyed by those who need it most: brilliant local charities.
Each month, we support 3 incredible charities in each of the regions we work in. We choose charities that are doing great work, and who will get the most impact from our donation.
We speak to the community of amazing businesses we work with and encourage them to support itison us, by donating vouchers for the same great experiences you see on itison.
We give vouchers to charities to help with fundraising or to provide respite to volunteers and the people they support; giving them the chance to get away for the night, enjoy a nice meal or take the kids out for the day.
At itison, our mission has always been about bringing loved ones together to enjoy incredible experiences, and now we want to make sure that the people who need it most get to have that too.
Every month, we matchmake our amazing deals to charities who would love to experience them. They can use them to give much needed respite, reward incredible volunteers or to fundraise.
Volunteers are the lifeblood that keep many charities going. It can be hard work emotionally and physically, and vouchers are a great way to help volunteers recharge their batteries and, most importantly, smile!
Many of our charities work with people who are going through a tough time in one way or another, and we want to make sure everyone has a chance to forget their troubles, have fun and enjoy a great experience.
Charities can use the vouchers we give them for raffles, auctions and more, ensuring they raise vital funds to continue the incredible work they do.
Big, multi-national charities are important, but we want to
help the little guy, and make sure that smaller, local charities
get the support and publicity they need. Together, we can make a
huge difference to the communities we live and work in.
If there's a brilliant local charity you think deserves an amazing experience from itison us, please let us know.
