Immersive Minds #SeasonOfGiving

Join us in putting 'giving' at the heart of Christmas

November 30, 2017

This year we're doing a 'Reverse Advent Calendar'. Each day we'll be filling a box for our local food bank with tins, dried goods and some tasty festive treats too.  We know that not all of our IM Community are local, but we'd like to invite all of you to contribute:

1. If you are local, we'll be hosting an open office every Friday in December between 2-4pm. Please feel free to drop in with your donation, and get rewarded with some festive treats!

2. If you aren't local but want to contribute to our advent campaign, then email us at Hello@immersiveminds.com and we'll advise you on how best to do that.

*Please don't post us food stuff/tins!

3. If you aren't local but want to participate in the Immersive #SeasonOfGiving, why not start your own campaign to support a local charity during the festive period? 

With our gratitude and wishes for a very happy festive season
