Movember launches contactless fundraising badges AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis72 Tagged with: contactless mobile Melanie May | 27 November 2018 | News This year’s Movember campaign has seen the launch of contactless donation badges across the UK, America, Canada and Australia.Participants are the first to wear the badges, which enable people to donate to the Movember men’s health campaign through a Near-field communication (NFC) chip. Tapping their badge opens an webform on the donor’s phone where they can select an amount and make a payment using Apple Pay, Google Pay or PayPal. Gift Aid can also be collected. The badges were distributed throughout Movember’s campaign in a variety of designs. The idea came about after Movember realised many potential participants were put off by having to ask friends and family for donations.London-based design agency, Bond & Coyne came up with the idea of creating the badges to get around this problem. The badges also have the added benefit of appealing to the growing number of people who want to donate, but do not carry cash.Dan Ridge, Campaign Director at Bond & Coyne said:“The technology in our smartphones is allowing charity fundraising to become easier than ever before. We’re really excited to push this technology, whether through wearable badges or on-street collecting. Soon contactless fundraising will be a pivotal tool for most charities.” 187 total views, 1 views today Advertisement 188 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis72 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Dormant accounts funding still elusive in Northern Ireland (12 July 2017)£7m dormant accounts funding for Northern Ireland (25 February 2016) Tagged with: dormant accounts Northern Ireland 242 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 The consultation on how funds from dormant accounts in Northern Ireland are spent has heard people say they want an approach which is flexible enough to meet the needs of small as well as larger organisations.The consultation on dormant accounts funding began with events in October in Newtownabbey, Craigavon, Derry-Londonderry and Enniskillen, with over 300 people across all four events. In addition, the consultation, which was coordinated by The National Lottery Community Fund (TNLCF) who will distribute funding, held roundtables and received feedback from emails.The TNLCF blog on the consultations reports that people have been telling them that one size doesn’t fit all and the change each individual organisation would make to become more sustainable and fit for the future might look different.‘People also really value what they learn from each other – they’d like to reduce competition and see collaboration enabled, not enforced,’ according to the blog. Support networks have faced cuts and some would like to have collective resources or expertise to draw on which they might not necessarily be able to afford themselves, e.g. professional financial, HR, legal or governance advice, the blog reports.While the Department of Finance which oversees the funding originally referred to support for social finance, the blog said the consultation heard some great examples of organisations which have benefited from existing loan funds which support voluntary organisations in Northern Ireland but a large proportion of the sector say they aren’t ready to access this type of social finance.Some organisations say they don’t want to have to prioritise paying off a loan over their core purpose. Others say they don’t have the skills to understand the difference finance models which might help them realise their long-term goals.In an earlier phase of the consultation there was a call for organisations to be supported to take time to consider options for diversifying their income and/or reducing reliance on public funding, ensuring all their work fits with their core purpose – rather than chasing project funding which can often lead to mission drift.TNLCF say they will be analysing the findings and working on programme design this month. Around £16 million has accrued from dormant accounts in the past 10 years.

WhatsApp WhatsApp Commissioners to look at repairing county phone system Twitter Local News Pinterest CAD election coverageEctor County commissioners will vote Monday to approve action allowing the county I.T. Department and TelResource to establish solutions to replace the county’s phone system.The meeting is at 10 a.m. in the commissioners’ courtroom located in the Ector County Administration building annex, 1010 E. Eighth St.This vote comes after the Ector County Courthouse’s phone system ceased working about three weeks ago, cutting off telephone communication to the courthouse.Precinct 3 Commissioner Dale Childers stated the reasoning behind the malfunctioning of the phone system as just being out of date.“It’s what they call end-of-life,” Childers said. “It’s old hardware, old software, and it just needs to be replaced.”Childers said I.T. had attempted to fix the phone system, but it could not be fixed. He said he guessed the phone system has probably been around since about the 1990s, and they had been planning on updating the system for several years now.“It’s been on our tech plan for several years, we just haven’t been able to afford it,” Childers said.The difference now, he added, is that over the last year-and-a-half, there are now companies who are able to host phone systems over the cloud, a form of phone service hosted over the internet, requiring an internet connection to be able to deliver and receive calls, as well as provide virtual voicemail and call recording.“It’s the way we’re going with all of our technology,” Childers said. “Now, we have a good network, numerous internet service providers that are very solid and confident about hosting our phone services.”Childers said that, had this option not been available, the county would have had to spend between $1 million or $2 million to replace the phone system. With a cloud-based phone system, the county would only have to pay a small upfront cost and monthly payments.Purchasing Agent Kenneth Lind said he was unsure how much exactly the phone system would cost up front at this point in time, or how long it would take to be installed, but said it would be discussed during the meeting Monday.Also during the meeting, commissioners will repeal the May election on the creation of a county sales tax district after it was discovered state law prohibits them from calling the special election.Commissioners voted unanimously to call the election last February, but it was discovered by County Attorney Dusty Gallivan a few weeks ago that state law prohibits counties from calling special elections in even-numbered years.The proposed assistance district would have established a new 1.25 percent sales tax in unincorporated parts of Ector County, which is everywhere outside the city limits of Odessa and Goldsmith. The district would have brought the total sales tax paid in Ector County in-line with the City of Odessa: 8.25 percent, the maximum amount allowed by state law.The agenda shows the commissioners’ court also plans to discuss legal matters, personnel matters and real estate issues during executive session.IN OTHER BUSINESS, COMMISSIONERS:Will consider a request to approve new board members, Tracie Vera Cruz, Jayne Faitus and Brooke Bieber to the Ector County Children’s Services Board.Will consider appointing B.A. Jinadu, M.D., MPH as Local Health Authority for Ector County.Will take action regarding the proposed early voting schedule and Election Day vote centers, including the use of Sherwood Church of Christ due to Sherwood Community Building being under construction.Will take action regarding a “Demand and Claim for Damages” letter from AT&T.Will consider a proposed transfer of title — Unit No. 953, Sheriff’s Office Vehicle, 2011 Chevrolet Impala LS — VIN No. 2G1WD5EM8B1210059, in connection with the settlement of an auto claim — traveler’s insurance.Will consider the proposed installation of a new water line to connect and tie in with the City of Odessa water lines, given the City of Odessa’s requirement that Ector County take over the city’s water and sewer lines on Ector County’s property, authorizing a payment of $151,960 out of 047-470-5509.Will consider the proposed granting and conveyance by Ector County to Oncor Electrical Delivery Company LLC of easements and rights of way in connection with the installation of new power lines for the Law Enforcement Center project.Will take action regarding the bid for the Ector County Law Enforcement Center Waterline Extension.Will take action regarding the proposal for the asphalt emulsion storage tank system replacement project.Will take action regarding the bid for commercial laundry equipment for various facilities, approve the proposed trade-in of replaced equipment, and approve the following budget amendments, from capital projects — jail expansion project, improvements and construction, to capital projects — jail expansion project, special departmental equipment in the amount of $60,603.Will consider a request to hire an HR clerk at Step 5 due to over 20 years of experience in multiple clerical areas with MCH and ECISD.Will consider a request to hire a secretary at Step 2.Will take action with respect to the proposed revision of the purchasing policy exemptions listing.Will take action on the plans and specifications for the East 56th Street widening project.Will take action on a proposed replat of Lots 17 and 18, Block 17, Western Hills Subdivision.Will take action on the proposed Madric MHRC, at the corner of Moss Avenue and Puerta Del Sol, to serve Lots 1 and 2, Block 1, Madrid Subdivision being a plat of a 9.43 acre tract in Section 40, Block 433, T-2-S, T&P Ry.

The Bench of Justices RF Nariman, Navin Sinha and KM Joseph enlarged the accused on bail, while holding that the Rajasthan High Court had erred in relying on the public prosecutor’s statement. “We are satisfied that the High Court judgment stating that a prima facie case has been made out against the petitioner based on the public prosecutor’s statement cannot be said to be strictly correct,” the Bench said. The petitioner-accused was arrested in March 2014, for facilitating the escape of one Barkat Ali, from whose house, huge explosive material was recovered by the police. The Public Prosecutor had therefore submitted before the Rajasthan High Court that there is prima facie evidence collected by the police during the course of investigation, indicating the involvement of the Petitioner. After perusing Section 43D(5) of the UAPA Act however, the Court said that the public prosecutor’s statement could not be said to be “strictly correct”. It perused the charge sheet and noted that the Petitioner-accused had not been named in the FIR. Section 43D(5) is a very stringent provision in terms of bail. It provides that no person accused of a terror offence under the Act “shall be released on bail”, unless the Public Prosecutor has been given an opportunity of being heard on the application for such release. It further stipulates that such accused person “shall not be released on bail”, if the Court, on a perusal of the case diary or the report made under section 173 of the Code is of the opinion that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accusation against such person is prima facie true. While recording its satisfaction that a case for granting bail is made out, the Bench refrained from saying anything more, so as not to prejudice the trial.The Petitioner, represented by AoR Irshad Hanif had also argued that during the course of investigation the police had failed to collect strong evidence to this effect that the petitioner was involved in commission of the crime.
