With Christmas approaching it’s not just Your Thurrock that can claim to be ‘local but global’ as a Thurrock-based IT company supports Street Kids in Honduras and Guatemala through Radio Christmas and Street Kids Direct.
Steve Westrop, Director of PuzzledWorld, has negotiated promotions with leading IT companies, including AVG Anti-Virus, to provide prizes and giveaways for the radio station broadcasting from South Buckinghamshire throughout advent in support of Street Kids Direct. Donations will also be made to Street Kids Direct for any new broadband, backup, hosting or messaging service that is setup in December.
Street Kids Direct works in partnership with existing projects in Guatemala and Honduras, coming alongside them to provide support, encouragement, training, volunteers, project funding and helping them to network with groups that could help them develop their work. Unlike most charities, though, they guarantee that 100% of all donations will be used directly for the benefit of street kids – none of it is used for administration and other costs.
The offers and promotions developed especially for the Radio Christmas/Street Kids Direct partnership are available to anyone, so Your Thurrock readers/viewers can take advantage of the same great deals and help street kids at the same time… and listen to Radio Christmas online.
PuzzledWorld provide a range of services to individuals, businesses and charities throughout Thurrock and across the UK, often providing them free or at-cost to help charities and voluntary groups get established without crippling ICT costs. With several years’ experience in the Third Sector they understand the needs but equally the budgetary restraints that groups may have.
