Every month at work we choose a different charity to sponsor so of course I put forward Cats Protection. On Fridays we run our own bar, so I banded my work buddies together and got them all to help out selling drinks (when secretly they probably just wanted to relax) with all the profits going to the charity. We also put donation boxes around the building, but I really wanted to spread to word to get people to open up their hearts and their pockets, so rather than sticking up some flyers or sending an email I decided the best way to get people thinking about cats would be to bring some cats into work.
Obviously I couldn't bring in real cats so I did the next best thing, I printed out life size kitties and hid them around the office, sitting on printers, looking over doors and hiding in toilets. All these cats got people awwwwing and smiling, I discovered that we have a lot of secret cat lovers at work.

Barbara Read, Co-ordinator & Welfare Officer at our Central London Branch says: “Thank you so much for nominating us as Digitas’ charity of the month and for all you did to fundraise for us through this innovative initiative. We really appreciate your hard work and the effort you put in. All the money will go towards helping our cats.”
