Donate An Alexa Show To Communities In Care
Due to lockdown, care home residents are missing loved ones and lacking entertainment. With your help, we are aiming to donate 50 Alexa Echo Shows to the golden generation, keeping them in touch in this time of isolation and connected to the outside world.

We know that care homes are in lockdown, friends and family can’t visit and external entertainment can’t be hired in. We at Radio Reminisce want to do something proactive to get care home residents connected to video calling and online entertainment such as Radio Reminisce.
Isolation and loneliness are already huge issues which impact the elderly and helping to reduce the effects of these is at the very heart of what we do. If one device can connect loved ones together, if one device can help raise a smile, if one device helps spark a memory then this is so worth doing. The social care sector is going through a challenging and scary time right now and key workers are doing their upmost to protect the most vulnerable in society. Let’s show them that we care about them, the home they work in and gift the technology needed to make a difference to the residents in care.
With #CareToConnect a business can sponsor an Amazon Echo Show (or as many as they can) and Radio Reminisce will arrange for them to be sent to care homes – or the care home(s) the sponsor has nominated. Radio Reminisce is kickstarting the campaign with a donation of £500. Together we can achieve our target. We can reduce the feeling of isolation, anxiety and loneliness if we come together and #CareToConnect.
*Please note, the device price could fluctuate from day to day to stay in line with Amazon.co.uk pricing.
Every sponsored Alexa Echo Show will receive a shoutout on the radio and their name in a special e-pack that we have put together to help users set up and get started with their new device.
Corporate sponsorship (Sponsor 10 Alexa Echo Shows or more)
Each care home will receive a special e-pack that we have put together to help users set up and get started with their new device, providing information on the benefits of an Amazon Alexa for the golden generation. This will include your company logo. We will also feature your business logo and donation information on our website and social media channels to an audience of over 12,000 as a thank you!
