We believe in giving something back...
fatBuzz believes in giving something back; if we are successful we believe we should share that success in areas where we know we can make a difference. By offering our expertise, we hope we can help charitable organisations to reach their key influencers and create real engagement that leads to increased awareness, identification of new ambassadors and, additional funds.
As a small business we cannot support every charity, neither can we do everything without payment but, we do try very hard to provide genuine and meaningful support to the organisations we have chosen as our nominated charities.
