While on recent travels in India our CEO, Dez Derry, found out about The Prakratik Society, which works with the people of Ranthambhore to create a sanctuary for local Tigers.

We plan to sponsor a school in the village by donating £5000. Joe, a senior designer at mmadigital is also currently looking to raise money for the charity by walking the length of India.

Their new single ‘No Giving Up’ features 12 year-old Ben NeZbit and was inspired by Ben’s own suffering as a victim of bullying. We were particularly pleased with the video which is now supporting the band as the tour schools with Bullying UK to help educate children about the effects of bullying. You can see the finished video here:
CoppaFeel is a charity set up to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs isn’t only fun, it could save their life. They are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to focus on awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling a new healthy habit that could one day save their life. We donated time and skills to Coppafeel and created a pay per click campaign to increase awareness of the charity.
