posted this deal
to donate £5 to Social Bite which would be used to buy a homeless person a Christmas meal or gift.
It was incredible to see that this deal was voted the hottest of the year (and featured in our 2021 - Year in Review
) but we wanted to see what was the impact in terms of donations.
We reached out to Social Bite who came back to us to confirm the following:Thanks to your help promoting the Itison x Social Bite Christmas campaign, 4,000 Christmas meals were enjoyed, over 16,000 gifts were delivered in time for Christmas and more than 70,000 (!!!) breakfasts, lunches, and emergency food packs will be delivered across 2022. Your support has played an essential part in Social Bite being able to provide free food to anyone who needs it this year.
As i'm sure you'll agree, those numbers are truly phenomenal
In total the donations to the Social Bite campaign provided 90,000 meals, gifts and emergency food backs.
We're so proud of our community and for the part you played in helping this campaign reach the numbers that it did.
