Hello <<First Name>>
Many of you will have now heard of the DevicesDotNow initiative coordinated by new coalition FutureDotNow. With FutureDotNow, we’ve supported over 1,700 isolated people to receive devices, delivered by 258 organisations within our network - making a real difference to people's lives. I know that keeping in touch and seeing the faces of your family and friends can help so much as we face a socially distanced world gripped by COVID-19. We’ve recently published our impact report for the first 8 weeks which highlights just a few of the wonderful stories of those who have benefitted from receiving devices.
It’s estimated that 1.9 million households in the UK don’t have access to the internet and we know that digitally excluded people are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis. That’s why this week our DevicesDotNow campaign is launching #4Faces4Devices challenge on social media - so we can create awareness and raise money to provide the most vulnerable people with phones and other devices. The idea is that you post 4 photos of those favourite faces you cannot do without, nominate them to do the same, and donate £4 to our Crowdfunder.
