Event organiser and trade publisher Diversified Communications have today announced that they will be setting up a Donation Page to raise funds for the people of Ukraine, who have been impacted by the crisis currently unfolding. All donations raised, will be sent to the Disasters Emergency Committee – DEC Ukraine Appeal, who will distribute the donations to 15 leading charities involved in the humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.
“We are all impacted and saddened by the unnecessary destruction taking place in Ukraine, and the devastating impact it is having on the Ukrainian people. People are in desperate need for help, so we encourage all our friends, visitors and exhibitors to support our fundraising efforts at this difficult time,” said Carsten Holm, Managing Director of Diversified UK.
He continues: “All of us in the events industry have always been proud of the unique role we play in bringing people together across the world, to share ideas, innovations and do business, so we feel we have a duty to get involved. With over 100,000 people attending our events or reading our publications and websites each year, if everyone donated just £10, we could raise a very serious amount of money.”
Visitors will be encouraged to make a donation when they register for all of Diversified’s UK events and Donate Now pop-ups and links will appear on all websites across the company’s publishing and event portfolio.
