Every Daffodil Counts: Marie Curie

 

Daffodils

 

March is here and it’s the month of the Daffodil. Therefore, we are proud to be working with Marie Curie, the national charity that specialises in giving care and support for people living with any terminal illness. We have recently supplied them with a large quantity of Marie Curie pens, which will be supplied to their network of over 500 fundraising support groups across the UK. These volunteers will use them on an ongoing basis as giveaways to their local supporters and donors.

Promotional Pens are the gift that keeps on giving because they are not only useful and reliable, but these specific ones will have the Marie Curie brand on so more people can become aware of what amazing work the charity does for people, giving them the brand recognition they deserve.

Marie Curie have been providing vital care and support for people living with terminal illnesses and their families for over 65 years and in 2016 alone, they cared for over 40,000 people across the UK. For every £1 Marie Curie raises, these go towards helping people living with terminal illnesses and their families by giving them the support they need the most. Without their supporters, they wouldn’t be able to provide vital care and support to the people who need them at an extremely difficult time.

Jack Thomas, Managing Director of BMT commented:

“I am delighted to be working with such a prestigious organisation as Marie Curie. They have over 2,000 nurses and 9,400 regular volunteers. We are producing a large volume of promotional pens for them, and in the past have produced other promotional items such as t-shirts, cotton shopper bags and umbrellas. These types of promotional items are great for brand awareness which is key to sustaining the support & care they give to over 31,000 people every year”.

So what can you do raise awareness and support Marie Curie?

Support the Great Daffodil Appeal – By supporting the Great Daffodil Appeal, you will be helping nurses across the UK to care for people living with a terminal illness. Whether you donate online, in your local charity shop or simply popping money into a Marie Curie pot to purchase a daffodil to wear; anything makes a huge impact.

Organise an event – Do something within your local community to raise awareness and money for Marie Curie. You can be as creative as you want; organise a bike ride, an event, take part in a run or you can find what’s going on in your local area on their website.

Donate to Charity Shops – For all the bargain hunters who love to shop, you can visit a local Marie Curie charity shop and anything you spend within the shop is donated to the great services they provide to people who need it most. If you’re thinking of having a spring clean, then why not drop off anything you no longer need into your local charity shop? By donating a few pre-loved items, you can help fund crucial nursing care.

Volunteering – Become a volunteer for Marie Curie where you can join thousands of people who donate their time, skills and enthusiasm to support people living with terminal illnesses and their families. Without volunteers, Marie Curie would not be able to deliver the range of services and support that they do.

BMT Promotions Thinking Outside the Box

You’ve all heard the phrase ‘content is king’…well we hadn’t but apparently it’s a thing. So in keeping with that motto, we’ve decided to invest even more time in our social media efforts.

In addition to our Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages, we have created a vine account and we’ll be updating our Instagram on a regular basis. In doing this we’re hoping that we can give our customers a closer look at what we do and how we create some of our most popular products.

We’ve had a bit of a brainstorm, and we were thinking, ‘how can we make our social media different from the rest?’ Well we’ve got a few ideas that we’ll be rolling out over the next few months, but our first, is our monthly comic strip. Our first effort is now on our Facebook and Twitter, go on check it out…we’re not going anywhere…in fact here’s a link: http://on.fb.me/1iVHeIc. We’ll be rolling a new one out every month with clever puns that focus on our products, and your feedback would be very much appreciated.

We’re full of good ideas here at bmt but if you have any ideas of your own, then feel free to give us a shout. If you have an idea for a new comic strip or even a new product, then give us a shout on our social media pages and we’ll happily give it a review.

In the meantime, keep an eye on our social media channels and we’ll keep you updated on the goings on in the world of bmt promotions.
