Amazon to work on Build Africa appeal
International development charity Build Africa has appointed Amazon to help develop and deliver a major new fundraising campaign.
Launching in spring 2014, the appeal will raise funds for a new early learning project in Uganda, to ensure children do better at school.
Amazon's team is involved in coming up with the campaign concept and content, communications planning, and implementing the PR programme.
Sam Harris, Build Africa's campaign manager, said: "This is an exciting time for Build Africa and we are delighted to be working with Amazon to reach new audiences through our early learning campaign in 2014".
Build Africa works in rural Uganda and Kenya to help children and their communities escape poverty through education and income generation projects.
Amazon appointed by Holocaust Memorial Day Trust
The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, the charity that promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day, has appointed us to handle media relations for next year's events.
Holocaust Memorial Day, which has taken place in the UK since 2001, is a time for people to remember the millions murdered during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. It is held on 27 January, the date Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated.
We will be working with HMDT to raise awareness of Holocaust Memorial Day by generating national media coverage.
Olivia Marks-Woldman, Chief Executive of HMDT said 'we were impressed by Amazon's grasp of the sensitivities surrounding the issue of genocide commemoration, and their thoughtful and creative suggestions for how we can increase awareness of Holocaust Memorial Day in the UK'.
Amazon embarks on new story-telling project
The Foyer Federation, which helps transform the circumstances of young people who have faced barriers in their lives, has recruited Amazon for a major new story-telling project.
We will we be working closely with the Federation's senior management team and its extensive network of members, partners and funders to curate a range of stories illustrating the organisation's history, impact and future. The stories will be told in a variety of formats, reflective of the breadth of the Foyer Federation's approaches and initiatives.
Joel Attar, Development and Delivery Officer at the Foyer Federation, says:
'We are an organisation rich with stories, and as a consequence story-telling has become an increasingly important tool for us to talk about and understand the impact of our work.
'As we approach our 21st birthday and the launch of our new Strategic Plan in April 2014, we are working with Amazon to curate the stories that illustrate our work to date, and crucially set out our approach for creating yet more positive stories of young people who are making the transition to adulthood.'
