Cheltenham based company MKLINK Ltd are donating cash to a choice of children’s charities every time they receive a request to quote for IT Support Services.

Any UK business with 4 or more staff that receive a free renewal quotation for their IT Support, Business Communications, or Sales Automation Software means that there is a cash charity donation made on their behalf, with no obligation to purchase anything.

The idea is the brainchild of long time young person’s charity supporter and MD of MKLINK Ltd Mike Knight.

He says “I’ve always liked the idea that worthy causes can benefit from business.

It’s a win / win situation for everyone.

There’s a lot of apathy for people to switch suppliers due to the perceived hassle or because people have become ‘comfortable’ with their existing supplier … and often don’t realise there are significantly better deals and services out there.

Often, IT companies try and attract prospective clients with shiny offers that come from their marketing budget.

I thought that helping children’ charities instead might be a more fulfilling incentive for those companies that want to show they have a caring side … as well as shopping around to get the best deals.

Which is why I’ve setup a very, very simple website that lets people request an IT quote and this is sent to (the most local member of) a UK network of trusted IT Suppliers.

Interestingly, I’ve already seen several IT companies working with each other in joint ventures and getting into the spirit of cooperation, as it’s almost impossible for any one local IT company to know everything or be experts in all types of software.

If you were going to request information or a quote anyway from a company it feels really good to know that disadvantaged children and young people can benefit from it … and at no cost to yourself.”

For Mike, a father of 2 young children himself, the idea of ethical business is something he’s passionate about.

“I’d like to see all children and young people being given the best possible start and opportunities in life. My business is just another area where I have the power to take action in whatever small way to make sure that happens” says Mike.

Simple And Effective.

Companies with 4 or employees are given a 6 digit code when they visit register at the website http://www.it-link.co.uk/contact.php

After they receive the code, they can request a free quote for IT Support, Business Communications or Sales Automation Software.

During that process they can choose between different children’s charities. The company then receives their free quote (when they are due for renewal or review) and the charity receives a cash donation, with a receipt sent to the prospective client.

Positive Reaction

Mike goes on to say “The vast majority of people have taken this offer in the spirit it was meant.

In life there will always be some criticism or cynicism where charity meets business. I can hope that most people will see this as a small way to make a real, positive difference to the lives of others in the course of their normal business, whilst at the same time giving people alternative quotes for their IT services which might just give them a better deal from a reputable, local supplier”.
