This year, thinkWhere is sending an environmentally friendly E-card and donating the money we’d typically spend on sending Christmas Cards to the humanitarian mapping charity MapAction.
We have a close tie with MapAction as one of our colleagues David Frankland is a MapAction volunteer. We’ve done a short interview with Dave on his experience with MapAction which you can read here.
If you’d like to find out more about MapAction…there are a number of new MapAction broadcasts you may be interested in. One is a short film. This features MapAction’s Royal Patron Prince Harry during his September visit to the MapAction team at an international simulation exercise in Norway. You can watch it here.
There’s also a BBC Radio 4 Christmas Day appeal at 07:54 (repeated at 18:56). This is being presented by TV personality Alexander Armstrong. The BBC Radio 4 broadcast will also be repeated at 15:27 on the 29th December.
See MapAction’s website www.mapaction.org for more details.
You can also follow MapAction on Twitter @MapAction and @MapAction_maps.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year.
