Blue Dot is the new social currency given to people who do good things for their favourite causes – sharing on social media, volunteering and donating to any one of 100k non-profits globally.
Blue Dot founder Chris Ward commented: “I was previously Creative Director of the UK’s Comic Relief, where we work first hand with major stars and brands to create attention-grabbing moments that engage millions of people in volunteering and charitable giving.
“I created Blue Dot, as a genuinely new and innovative way to enable every single cause to create that same impact, every single day of the year.”
Natasha Hill, Marketing Director, Cancer Research UK added: “Blue Dot can be to charity what Nectar is to shopping.”
