LeapCR Inspires Corporate Social Responsibility

by Mark Lovett on June 20, 2010

LeapAnywhere is an amazing UK-based organization that lives by the motto, “Have Fun, Do Good”, and connects individuals with cool charitable events.  Not satisfied with their past success, they just launched LeapCR, a platform designed to inspire and foster the corporate social responsibility movement.

LeapCR Inspires Corporate Social Responsibility

According to Malcolm Scovil, the founder of LeapCR, “Like a concierge service, we’re dedicated to finding the best local causes for employees to support.  To date we’ve partnered with more than 350 charities and non-profits, including Oxfam, WaterAid, Amnesty, Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Foundation & Madonna’s charity Raising Malawi.”

Corporate & Employee Benefits

When companies subscribe to the LeapCR service they gain visibility of key metrics, including the total time contributed by company employees to the local community, participation rates and a list of all charities supported.  Employees gain access to a range of charitable events such as river cleanup projects, soup kitchens, aiding the homeless, fundraising events, cultural exhibitions and educational lectures.

LeapCR is a fantastic new platform that makes it super easy for corporations to mobilize their employee base in the service of causes that are meaningful to the brand and employees. Concepts like LeapCR are so brilliant because they offer management, employees and the community so many benefits.
