Parkinson’s UK announced as Thinking of You’s 50th charity partner
Charity mobile start-up Thinking of You has announced its 50th charity partner, Parkinson’s UK, who will join charities including the likes of Shelter, Children with Cancer UK, Brain Tumour Research and Make-A-Wish on the Thinking of You app.
Thinking of You is the most thoughtful place on any mobile; a unique proposition that enables users to send a thoughtful message to someone and add an optional donation to the chosen charity of the recipient or sender. Soon Parkinson’s UK will be able to be selected by app users for one-off or regular donations, and supporters will be able to choose Parkinson’s UK as their favourite charity for fundraising campaigns, too.
Emily Sturdy, Digital Supporter Engagement Lead, said “We’re delighted to be working with Thinking of You to offer supporters a new and innovative way to support us. There’s currently no cure for Parkinson’s but it doesn’t need to stay that way, and every donation through Thinking of You will help us to make life changing breakthroughs happen.”
Johnny Pitt, Founder of Thinking of You said, “Reaching 50 charity partners is another great milestone in our young life. It’s extra special to mark this moment with Parkinson’s UK who this year celebrate their 50th anniversary of driving better care, treatments and quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s. This month we’ve also welcomed The Royal Association for Deaf People and The Hygiene Bank as charity partners, and are attracting interest from charities right across the UK.”
Thinking of You is designed for happy days, sad days and important days; it only takes a moment to be thoughtful, brighten someone’s day and support a good cause by sending a thought with Thinking of You. Available for download from the App Store and Google Play.
