Ideagen Plc raises more than £4,200 for Red Cross humanitarian effort in Ukraine
Global software provider, Ideagen Plc, has raised funds for victims of the Ukrainian war, with more than £4,200 being donated to relief efforts led by the British Red Cross Society.
The Nottingham-based firm, which specialises in risk and compliance software for regulated industries, launched the appeal to its staff at the beginning of March when news begun to unfold of the devastating events in Ukraine.
Ideagen employees across the globe joined the fundraising efforts, while the software firm matched every penny donated, taking the total to £4,204. Staff were encouraged to undertake random acts of kindness or good deeds throughout the month to mark the fundraising campaign.
Ideagen CEO, Ben Dorks, said: “Our hearts are with those affected by the horrific conflict in Ukraine. We believe in harnessing the power of working together to support the humanitarian efforts of the Red Cross which is why we have matched donations made by our staff.
“We stand with and support the people of Ukraine and strongly condemn the attacks by the Russian government. Right now, cash donations are by far the quickest, safest and most direct way to support the work of the Red Cross in Ukraine and neighbouring countries and I am so proud of our staff for their generosity.”
A dedicated JustGiving page was set up for Ideagen staff to contribute, which received donations from its offices across the world, from Australia to the US. Meanwhile, collection buckets for loose change were placed around Ideagen’s buildings too.
