We are so honoured to be part of Bespoken`s incredible new `Be-Causes` initiative.

The way the program works is simple - each time a new client joins their agency, they will make a one-off donation to whichever cause the client nominates as their beneficiary.

We`ve had loads of fun collaborating with the team to make this possible, and we`re so excited to follow the journey of this program!

Thank you to Bespoken for putting humans at the centre of your work ❤️
