At Brightside Dental, the foundation of our mission statement is to help others and improve lives. This is applies to our clients, team members, the community and beyond. With this is mind, we regularly support a wide range of charities.
Our chosen charity for the final quarter of 2016 was Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice which is a community based hospice service in Barnet providing support for children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families in North London. We have recently made a donation of £283.56 for this fantastic local charity. http://www.noahsarkhospice.org.uk/
This quarter we are supporting RSPCA, Royal Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. RSPCA started its work in 1834 in London, this spread worldwide and has worked hard on its mission to improve the lives of animals, with the main focus being to end animal cruelty. Every day they investigate 400 cruelty complaints and rescue 320 animals. They cover a wide range of animal care including working to improve the welfare of pets, improve the lives and reduce the suffering of farm animals, improve the welfare of wild animals and reduce the use and suffering of animals in experiments. As a charity, its important they raise enough funds to continue their work. In 2015, £123 million was needed to cover expenses. https://www.rspca.org.uk/home
We have been working with our giving partner B1G1 since 2012. Buy1GIVE1 is a social enterprise founded and based in Singapore in 2007 whose aim is to work with small businesses around the world in order to completely transform the way giving has been perceived in the past.B1G1 moves giving from an ad-hoc, event-driven model to a very specific transaction-based giving model — a world where every transaction gives back and makes a difference.The system is based on a scheme in which day to day activities can have an enormous impact on someone’s life.
100% of contributions made by B1G1 Businesses partners are passed directly to the Worthy Cause organisations through B1G1 Giving. B1G1 takes nothing from the contributions nor does it receive funds from charities in any way for the services it provides.
For every new client that joins the practice and for every hygienist treatment booked, we make a donation, for example to provide school equipment for children or bricks to build a house. https://www.b1g1.com/businessforgood/about-us/
