Oxxygen Marketing Partnership, based in Hammersmith, aims to help raise vital funds for the NSPCC by launching a new social media campaign this March.
Looking to utilise social media for an outstanding cause – ‘Now I Know’ by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) – the Oxxygen team has committed to donate 50p to the charity for every new Facebook ‘Like’ they receive, running up to November. Capped at 1000 ‘Likes’, Oxxygen Marketing hope to raise up to £500 for the NSPCC.
But what do the Likes mean for the Oxxygen Marketing Managing Director, Max Hilton Jenvey?
Reaching 500 new ‘Likes’ will see Max grow a moustache and on reaching 1,000 ‘Likes’, a full-on beard. For those of you who don’t know Mr Jenvey, he absolutely loathes facial hair leaving his team excited but himself daunted at the prospect.
Max, 47, said: “Due to a huge dislike of facial hair, the team cooked up a plan for me to grow a moustache and then a beard when we hit the 500 and 1,000 ‘Likes’ on our Facebook page. As a big supporter of the NSPCC how could I say ‘No’? The charity does fantastic work to help those children who don’t have a happy and safe upbringing, and we hope to raise some valuable funds to support their crucial work to protect these vulnerable children.”
Vicky Sait, Community Fundraising Manager for the NSPCC, said: “We are so grateful to Oxxygen Marketing for committing to raise money for our charity through their new social media campaign. Ninety-two per cent of our funds come directly from the generous donations of members of the public and businesses, such as Oxxygen Marketing. And we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to deliver our vital services, which are so often a lifeline to children and young people affected by abuse, without their kind support. We wish Max and his team all the best for the campaign!”
