We love a challenge. We also love helping charities put on amazing fundraising events, so we were doubly excited when St Nicholas Hospice Care came to us with “Mission: Improbable 2018” and asked how Echoleft could help them run the first-ever Mission: Improbable, a charity scavenger hunt . Here’s the pitch: Armed with only a mobile phone, eleven teams made up of local businesses, battle it out to complete bespoke missions and undertake a series of challenges.
We knew the “Updates” feature on Echoleft fundraising pages would be perfect for this. Updates allow fundraisers to add text, photos and videos to their fundraising pages really easily. Each Mission: Improbable team had their own fundraising page and were able to add an update every time they completed a challenge.
With 11 teams and 21 challenges, that’s at least 231 things for the St Nicholas staff to keep track of. Luckily, our “Team Fundraising” features were able to help. They could see all the updates, from all the teams, in one place in real-time.
We were lucky enough to sit back at HQ with George, Abby and Emma from St Nicholas Hospice Care and watch the action unfold, Max even went live on Facebook to show everyone how it was getting on🕵️♀️
Every single team did amazingly well and everyone gave 100% but sadly they can’t all win, so it’s a huge well done to the winning team, Lark Technology! 🥇🏆
The St Nicholas Hospice Care fundraisers did such a great job to make Mission: Improbable truly unique and were a pleasure to work with. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did.
Be sure to check out the photos that we posted on Facebook of all the terrific teams!
