Not enough, but at least a little.
At Go Up, we believe that making web design, web marketing and web strategy ethical goes far beyond simply using honest, accountable practices. It also means taking care of the planet we live on.
It is difficult for a business to completely eliminate its carbon footprint, but at Go Up we try.
At the end of each financial year we donate 10% of all of our business profits to various charities and non-for-profit do-gooder institutions. We also build websites for charities, offering massive discounts, ranging from 20% to completely free.
We endeavour to plant enough trees in the Amazon Rainforest to try and offset over twice our yearly carbon emissions, and commit ourselves to keeping these emissions to a minimum in the first place!
We strive to make ethical web design and ethical inbound marketing services available to all.
Are you a charity?
Are you a charity up to some pretty cool things? Shoot us an email; outlining what you do and how you do it, and you may well be entitled to a whopping discount on your web design and marketing- ranging from a 20% to 100% discount.
Here are some of the charities and institutions that we try to help. If you are interested in the work of any of them, please give them a call and join their donor lists
The Tumaini Schoolwww.tumainitrust.org
The Tumaini School is a Kenyan school for HIV positive orphans, many of whom have younger siblings to care for. The work that they do is remarkable, heartbreaking and life changing. The school provides young men and women with a place to live, an education, medicine, food, support and the love of the closest thing that they have to family. Every penny donated goes directly towards giving these young people a future brighter than their past.
The Art of Meditationwww.theartofmeditation.org
The Art of Meditation is a non-for-profit organisation that teaches meditation to anyone wishing to learn. Their services are completely free- they provide full bed, board and teaching for 2 day to 10-day retreats, relying solely on the optional donations of participants and donors.
It is an organisation that has drastically improved the lives of a huge number of people.
