We created d19 to provide a better way of working within the advertising industry. Our priority is to treat people right whether they be our staff, clients or suppliers. As an extension to this, we want our business to help projects and make a difference.
A select number of our team got on their bikes riding the gruelling 63 miles from London to Brighton to support the excellent Sea Change for Mental Health cause, organised by our industry charity NABS.
The ride aims to raise £35,000, which will go directly to creating better mental health and wellbeing for those working in our industry.
Time & Talents are a Bermondsey based community organisation supporting children, families and older people. They are a charity we think the world of as they bring the community together and our office was based in Bermondsey for many years.
We offer our help across the board, be that marketing advice, sharing our media expertise, or providing team help. We’ve been involved in events such as their 135th anniversary party last Summer and the Ruby Tuesday Dementia Day they organised in May 2023.
Our philosophy is based on business karma, fostering a shared sense of purpose with our clients, it also rooted in a strong belief that it is possible to make the world, not just the media industry, a better place. By becoming B Corp certified we are legally committing ourselves to using our business as a force for good. We are proud to be part of a community that is consciously working to the same values as us.
The team got physical as Autumn 21 approached and our charitable urge kicked in. Firstly, 80% of the staff ran on behalf of The Trussell Trust raising over £1,000 for our food bank client.
Jake, Martin and Dave B notched the respect points up several gears as they ran The London Marathon on behalf of two Bermondsey based (where our previous office was) charities, Time & Talents and Bede House. It was Jake and Martin’s first (and quite possibly last) marathon, whilst it was number nine for Dave who feels he has one more left in him to get to the magic double figures. We would have raised £6k across the two charities by the time all the donations are in.
Happy 30th Birthday to The Issue. This is an amazing landmark anniversary for The Big Issue who we have now worked with pro bono for over 8 years.
They asked if we could get involved and help them broadcast their birthday message by reaching out to our media owner friends for FOC space. We managed to acquire in the region of £100k+ worth of media space in newspapers and OOH sites which they ran stand out creative over the months of September and October 2021.
A brilliant charity deserves some brilliant d19 love ❤
We are the shirt sponsors for Boxmoor Cricket Club, a progressive, grass roots club in a small Hertfordshire community. Their approach to supporting women’s cricket and pushing for all sex inclusivity in what is traditionally seen as a male dominated sport is an inspiration to how sports clubs should be run. Our sponsorship money since 2019 has helped the ongoing running of the club.
