As Click2Convert continues to grow as a digital marketing agency, we remain true to our values and core principles. We care strongly about the success of our clients’, our team and the small communities that we are part of.
Despite supporting various charities and important causes throughout the years as part of our business strategy, this year we are officially launching ‘Click Cares’; our initiative which focuses on contributing to society and the communities that our dedicated team are passionate about. To start off this journey, each of our team chose a charity that was close to their hearts to receive a donation from Click2Convert, and we have detailed them below to raise awareness.
Disasters Emergency Committee
With homes being destroyed, families being separated and thousands of lives being lost, more than 4 million people have fled their country, and another 6.5 million have left their homes to escape the devastating events that are happening right now in Ukraine.
The aim of the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal
With huge numbers of people arriving at the Ukraine border with only the belongings that they can carry, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) supports UK based charities and their local partners to distribute funds efficiently throughout Ukraine and neighbouring countries. Donations help these charities distribute food, water, shelter and healthcare to those in need, and the UK government has pledged to match DEC donations up to £20 million, so our support can go even further.

In Scotland, over 90,000 people are affected by dementia and alzheimers. The umbrella term, which holds over 100 different types, is a disease which damages an individual's brain cells, so that the brain no longer works as it should, impacting memory loss and the ability to perform simple day-to-day tasks.
The aim of Alzheimer Scotland
Today, there are medical researchers all over the world who are working to find causes and develop treatments for this horrible illness, with many charities working every day to make sure nobody has to face dementia alone.
Scotland’s national dementia charity, Alzheimer Scotland, provides services and excessive support across Scotland to those who live with the condition, including several individuals close to one of our team members. From offering a safe space and friendly environment for people with dementia, to providing information and emotional support, not only for those with dementia, but also for their carers, families, friends and professionals.

Crohn’s and Colitis are the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which is a chronic condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system. In the UK, it is estimated that around 1 in 123 people have Crohn’s or Colitis, which equates to over 500,000 individuals in the country being affected everyday by this lifelong disease.
The aim of Crohn’s & Colitis UK
Crohn’s and Colitis UK is Britain’s leading charity for the condition. They aim to help improve the day-to-day lives of those living with these chronic illnesses, whilst being pioneers in research to find a cure for these diseases. The charity works closely with the NHS, and has helped a member of our team adapt to living with Crohn’s over the last year.

Clark’s Little Ark
After the loss of their son who loved to be surrounded by happy, smiling people, a young couple aimed to keep their spirits high and enthuse their son's positive energy, by bringing love and happiness to their local community, in the form of Clark’s Little Ark.
The aim of Clark’s Little Ark
Since animals bring joy to most, the couple decided to create Clark’s Little Ark animal farm, in the hope that it would bring love, smiles and happiness to the local community.
Their efforts have been rewarded with an ever growing collection of animals, staff and volunteers who have taken the local Dumfries attraction to their heart. At Clark’s Little Ark, the volunteers give up their time to raise funds, organise open days, and carry out some hands-on tasks with the animals. Enthusiastic local families visit the attraction every day, to catch a glimpse of all the little residents, from Shetland ponies and donkeys, to pigs, sheep, hens and more.
