Boost your brand
RNIB is the leading UK charity for blind and partially sighted people. We are amongst the top ten most trusted charities in the UK and only eight per cent of people in the most recent charity brand survey said they would not donate to RNIB – one of the lowest figures for any charity brand in the UK (source: Charity Brand Index 2012, Third Sector Research, page 63).
Support a cause which is topical
Currently we are actively campaigning on being there when it matters, as only 30 per cent of eye clinics in the UK currently have some kind of qualified support in place, and many of these posts are under threat. We are also campaigning to reduce obstructions on pavements helping make streets less of an obstacle course for blind and partially sighted people. This follows on from successfully campaigning to encourage all major banks to provide Talking ATMs and the significant role in making London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics the most accessible games ever.
Set yourself apart from your competitors
Consumers spend twice as long reviewing cause related ads and are much more likely to have a positive impression of a company which supports good causes such as Wear dots…raise lots.
Increase your sales
80 per cent of consumers would switch brands (provided price and quality were equal) to one associated with a good cause. The non profit brand matters – which is why partnering with RNIB, one of the most trusted charities in the UK, through Wear dots…raise lots makes business sense.
