Ali Mir, Oracle Advertising Making Fund-Raising Success for Charities in the UK

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2011) - Charity fund-raising is already reeling under the present economic situation and to add to their woes, Manchester is the latest city to restrict the activities of street fundraisers. Along with this the recession has meant everyone is pulling in the purse strings, not daunted, Ali Mir, Oracle Advertising, MD has this to say, "Oracle today works on behalf of some of the world's largest charities and we constantly deal with the apathy and even antipathy of the people on the streets. There's no denying that charity fund-raising has its ups and downs but statistics say a different story".

Experts say that for the last eight to 10 years, the number of people signing up face-to-face has been 500,000 to 600,000 each year, and has been fairly stable. Oracle Advertising has been actively involved in fund-raising activities since 2005 and has seen and helped with expansion in 10 cities, Ali Mir attributes it all to the army of diligent fund-raisers in their fold. "We conduct continuous checks to make sure we present the charities we represent in the best possible way to prospective donors; face to face fundraising's problems are dealt with clearly in our in-house training."

However, the latest restrictions in Manchester is looked upon by Ali Mir, Oracle Advertising, as a challenge and hopes that this will reduce the criticism fund-raisers face by being daily out there. "At Oracle Advertising, we're ready to face these restrictions with a positive note in Manchester. Our mission is simple – to be a company forever driven by individual achievement, focused on the client's needs and ready to meet any challenges head on".
