Warren’s Extra Hour

Posted on October 23rd, 2012 in Cool Competitions by Stephanie

The clocks go back this Sunday, 28th October, giving everyone a precious extra hour to enjoy. It goes without saying that most will take the opportunity to catch up on missed sleep, or to stay snuggled up with a loved one in bed. But award winning bed makers Warren Evans are taking a different approach and encouraging Brits to use the time to help others.

The company are inviting people to blog, Facebook or tweet about the London and Brighton based charities or community projects that they donate their ‘extra’ hours to. Warren will then choose the story that inspires him the most, donate £250 to the cause, and send over a team of ‘happy helpers’ to give a day’s worth of their time.

Warren says:

“I’m proud to say that our company has some great longstanding relationships with a number of national charities and organisations, including the Big Issue Foundation, Shelter and FSC UK, but we’re always looking for inspirational local projects to support too. A lot can be achieved in those spare hours we spend watching TV or tucked up in bed – and through this initiative I hope to highlight some of the great work that people are doing to support their communities.”

Nominations need to be in by November 5th, 2012.

Could really use about 2 extra hours to sleep every day.

Warren is really taking up the social cause seriously. I think this is really a good idea to let everyone help, I mean if so many people use this opportunity then something big can be achieved. And an hour can really help though we don’t understand its value in our day to day life.

I believe if big companies like the Warren’s keep coming up with these small but effective ways to help the needy, the world will become a better place to live in. Moreover we all owe something to our respective communities, and if we all are continue to contribute towards social causes like this, things will definitely take a positive turn.
