Industry: Advertising & Marketing
“A candle lit from the spark of another burns eternally.” Help us by lighting a single candle and watch it ignite a flame that reaches around the world.
Orangeville, Ontario, Canada (PRUnderground) July 16th, 2020
Dufferin Media, a local digital marketing agency has been approached by a local entrepreneur with a very unique business concept … with an element of raising money for charities all around the world that have been impacted by this global pandemic.
2020 The Year the World Stood Still is a website where anybody will be able to purchase a digital candle and leave a personalized message, which will be pinned on a world map. This message can be a memorial of a lost one, a tribute, a dedication or a message of hope and a percentage of all sales will be donated to charitable organizations.
In June Dufferin Media accepted nominations for non-profit organizations to participate in the campaign. From over 100 submissions, 50 initial charities were selected. Nominations will once again open up on August 1st so that more charities will be able to participate. The goal is to raise $1 Million which will be distributed to 100 charities with donations of $10,000 each.
The entrepreneur in this project wishes to remain anonymous but shared the following message “My only hope is that some good can come out of this horrible pandemic. That people will start to realize that all the material ‘stuff’ they want and feel they need is irrelevant compared to what they already have: family, friends and health! And that we can now start to heal and treat everybody the same, with respect, compassion and kindness … just as the saying goes “treat people the way we want to be treated”. And maybe just maybe even end some of the world’s conflicts going on and bring “Peace on Earth”! What a wonderful world we could live in. Let’s hope and pray this is the outcome of this pandemic.”
Sarah Clarke, founder of Dufferin Media said “Giving back to non-profit organizations has been a very important part of my life for a long time, and one of our core values at Dufferin Media. I am honored and excited at this very amazing opportunity to help get funds to non-profits in this most critical time where the demands on these organizations are higher, but fundraising events and efforts have been put on hold due to the pandemic.”
2020 The Year the World Stood Still aims to bring light back to the world through the lighting of digital candles and the financial aid sent to non-profits. We are on a mission to raise $1,000,000 for Charity and help individuals immortalize their message for all the world to see on a global map of hope. We are creating a World Map with individual candles that can be “lit” to give hope to the world and raise funds for charity. You can leave a message for the survivors of the future to understand what this year has meant to you.
2020 The Year the World Stood Still is a private corporation founded by a private entrepreneur whose main goal is to bring light back to the World and help non-profit organizations.
