Billable Hour 2017 fundraising campaign

Postby atticus » Thu Oct 12, 2017 3:29 pm

Sean Jones QC has launched the 'Billable Hour' campaign for 2017. Members of the legal profession donating an hour's fees to Save the Children.

This year the campaign is supported by the Legal 500 - arms are being twisted so that any lawyer who brags on social media about their ranking is being persuaded to donate.
The Legal 500 is proud to support the efforts of the Billable Hour campaign. In September 2015, the terrible consequences of the refugee crisis were plain. Horror at the suffering of the desperate and the sight of children washed ashore compelled lawyers to help. The aim was to ask lawyers to donate their fee for one billable hour of their time to Save the Children. Over £250,000 has been raised so far, but we can do so much more.

This year’s Billable Hour campaign will support Save the Children as it strives to make the world a better place for children. Last year, Save the Children helped over 22 million children in their darkest moments. Right now, Save the Children is responding to the plight of children facing persecution, injustice, hunger and struggle across the world.

The suffering of children continues and so does the Billable Hour campaign.

BE A PART OF IT.
