On Friday 30th September 2016 companies across the West Midlands helped to raise awareness of St Basils and our youth homelessness prevention and support services by donating the HOMEpage of their company website to us for the day!
Visitors to their websites on Friday 30th September saw a St Basils branded 'overlay' explaining that the company in question has donated their HOMEpage to help end youth homelessness in the Midlands. It then invited them to visit St Basils website to find out more about us and sign-up to our enewsletter to receive more information. However visitors were still be able to access the companies original homepage when desired.
We approached the best businesses and Corporate names in the Midlands to take part in this initiative and the following Companies agreed to take part: BHSF, Dixons, IDEX Consulting, Tuckers Solicitors, Fira, BPN Architects, Shire Insurance, Birmingham Civic Society, Argent LLP in conjunction with Paradise Circus Limited Partnership, The Space Studio and Trinity Mirror Midlands.
These companies all donated their HOMEpage on the same day to have a bigger impact. Friday 30th September was chosen as the closest working day (with therefore more traffic) to St Basils birthday on 1st October.
We hope to repeat this initiative. If you're interested in taking part please contact us.
