The response to Claire Squires’ tragic death on Sunday has been extraordinary. Out of respect for Claire’s memory, we will be donating our fees back to the Samaritans.
We are honoured to have played our part in enabling people from all over the world to pay their respects and donate in their thousands over the last couple of days. Yesterday the JustGiving site saw a record number of visits, with over 10,000 people donating together at any given time. This huge wave of sympathy continues today.
The fees that charities pay us to handle their online donations enable us to provide a world-class system capable of handling huge volumes of traffic and donations at a moment’s notice, and to continuously re-invest to create new and better tools for charities to raise money.
The huge groundswell of support for the Samaritans in Claire’s memory is a moving example of the power of the internet for good.
