#BlessOurHeroes is a social fundraising campaign with an associated website (www.blessourheroes.org, the “Website”) operated by Telbee Group Ltd (20 Exhibition House Addison Bridge Place, London, England, W14 8XP, "We, Telbee") with the aim of raising funds for the National Emergencies Trust (nationalemergenciestrust.org.uk, charity number 1182809).
We receive no fees for operating #BlessOurHeroes, and handle no pledges/donations ourselves.
To contact us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please read these terms carefully before submitting a pledge/donation on our Website as they affect your legal rights and obligations. By submitting a pledge/donation, you confirm that you accept these terms and agree to comply with them.
You agree to donate the amount of money you specified on the Website (the"Pledge") to charity the National Emergencies Trust as part of the #BlessOurHeroes campaign.
The Pledge may be presented by #BlessOurHeroes as a pledge against the target number of “Blessings” (audio recordings received on the Website, plus associated data including but not limited to a display name and tags) that you specified alongside the Pledge (the "Target") for the purposes of creating publicity around the Pledge and the #BlessOurHeroes campaign so as to encourage more blessings to be submitted to maximise the positivity and goodwill generated for our frontline workers, and funds raised for the National Emergencies Trust.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Pledge is non-refundable and will be transferred to the National Emergencies Trust whether or not the target number of blessings is reached. We do not take any commission or fees for your Pledge.
If you made a “Super Pledge” on the Website you entered the Target number of Blessings below “Target Blessings:” and the Pledge in pounds sterling is equal to the Target number of Blessings (the Pledge is £1 per Blessing).
If you made a “Boost Pledge”, on the Website you entered the Pledge in pounds sterling below “I / we will donate:” and the Target number of Blessings below “When this Target is reached”.
Telbee recorded the Target and Pledge amounts when you pressed “Submit your Pledge”.
