Be well in 2010!

In the relatively short existence of DigiRedo we have completed many exciting projects, met inspiring many people and gained lots of interesting new insights.
We have come to realize that the implementation of new and innovative forms of communication requires vision, an open mind and the courage to abandon status quo. We therefore consider ourselves very fortunate to have worked with so many people who exhibit these characteristics and it is only when we reflect on this that we realize that much of DigiRedo’s success was dependent on the vision, courage and open minds of our customers. And for this we want to thank you personally.
Starting a company in the midst of one of the worst recessions in recent history is daunting. But it’s not as daunting as drinking a glass of water…That is, if you’re one of the billion people who don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water. It really puts things into perspective when you realize that more people die from drinking a cup unsafe water than all the wars put together. Hence, we at DigiRedo want to do our part to help eradicate this horrible problem by contributing to Charity: Water
‘Charity: water’ is a non-profit organization which gives people the opportunity to start their own fundraising campaigns to help bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. Unique to Charity: Water – and most appropriate for DigiRedo – is the role that new media play in helping to raise funds. You can set up your own website, integrate with Facebook, Twitter and even build a community. The use of New Media result in transparency, knowing that all Euros or Dollars reach their destination. No huge overhead. Moreover, through New Media, contributors can track their gifts to the point of expenditure.
So, it’s time for action. Our DigiRedo campaign is called ‘Bytes for Water’ and you can contribute yourself by visiting our campaign website. In order to build one well for clean water, $5,000 is required. And with one well, we can provide one village of more than 250 people with clean water. For 20 years. Every $20 gives one person clean water for the next 20 years.
We have already kicked-off our campaign by contributing 20% of the target amount. By doing so, we of course hope that we are leading by example.
And that’s our wish for 2010. Learn about New Media and use it to make the world a better place.
We wish you and your family all the best for 2010.
René and Erik
