It’s cold outside, the threat of snow is looming on the horizon and it seems like it’s constantly nighttime. But despite all this, there’s a feeling of joy in the air and everyone seems to be smiling just a little bit more, which can only mean one thing.
Dr. Seuss once wrote: “What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?” The Grinch had to learn the lesson the hard way, but at this time of year, are we guilty of the same?
It was Whitney Houston who once said: “I believe that children are our future.” And she was right. While we would love to burst into a somewhat shaky rendition of The Greatest Love of All, there’s a point to be made in this post.
In this day and age, almost every single person uses technology in some way, shape or form to make life easier. In fact, a massive 58% of Brits now own a smartphone and 19% have a tablet. That means that we’re online more than ever before - whether it’s to call a friend, check a train time, book a holiday, pass the time, or even save a life. It’s safe to say that Reason Digital couldn’t operate without it, that’s for sure.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a formula for fundraising. There are a lot of tips to try and advice to follow, but to guarantee lots of lovely donations, we’ll never know what steps will work for every, single charitable cause. A generous budget, a heap of creativity, and a dollop of exposure seems to be one recipe for success, but what about local giving?
For many people blogging is a fun pastime, for others it’s a serious business. Blogs can be used for an infinite number of reasons; for business purposes, for journalistic endeavours, for documenting one's activities, or even just simply for the writer’s enjoyment. It’s a major activity on the internet with 77% of internet users reading them and 6.7 million bloggers out there writing them. But what many bloggers don’t realise is the legal implications to writing a blog.
Though often maligned, video games have become the new cultural zeitgeist. Once marginalised to only those with technical know-how, and seen to only be indulged in by young men, video games have now become a fun pastime for all.

Money, money, money, mooooooooney. Let’s face it, it’s the most important thing for a charity. Doing good is the primary goal, but you just can’t do that if you don’t have any cash to fund yourself with.
