Greatstone International Ltd has become a charity partner with The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.
Greatstone chose the Trust as their preferred charity partner because of their proven track record in cutting edge research which brings hope to thousands (or millions) of sufferers and their families worldwide.
Greatstone’s contribution is to raise funds via the Greatstone online e-commerce engine and encourage our clients to donate to the Trust
To make this possible, Greatstone has updated its website shopping mechanism to include a soft opt-in widget. This will allow our clients to donate a percentage of the net value of their shopping cart to The Cure Parkinson’s Trust.
Greatstone hopes to lead the way in encouraging other e-commerce facing businesses to integrate charitable giving in their payment gateway. This could prove to be a powerful fundraising tool for organisations like The Cure Parkinson’s Trust which relies on charitable giving to achieve its goals.
Current e-commerce statistics state that 40 percent of worldwide internet users have bought products or goods online via desktop, mobile, tablet or other online devices. This amounts to more than 1 billion online buyers and is projected to continue growing.
At Greatstone we believe strongly, that with the help of organisations like The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, a cure for Parkinson’s will be found within a decade.
We are therefore excited at the opportunity to be part of making this a reality.
