Xerox reseller Document XL is re-launching a charity fund-raising initiative originally developed in 2011. The Charity-Wrap scheme provides charities with a regular source of income by linking donations to office printing.
Every time a participating business prints a colour page on a Charity-Wrap printer, Document XL will donate 1p to charity. Document XL Managing Director Stephen Dobson said: “Many businesses are too busy to run charity events and collect sponsorship, and those who do have to limit it to a few times a year. With Charity-Wrap we are making it easy for people to support a cause close to their heart, with no effort.” He hopes the scheme will raise £1 million for charities nationwide. In addition to the 1p donations, he is inviting businesses to make additional contributions based on a percentage of the savings he says they will make by switching from an old device to a new Charity-Wrap printer.
