WebHealer working with Samaritans to increase the power of fundraising
Feel Good Friday is back - this year, on Friday 1 February 2013 - and WebHealer is once again proud to be supporting it with its Feel Good Friday Therapy Map - now even bigger and better than last year.
Feel Good Friday is a national fundraising initiative in aid of Samaritans, when everyone is encouraged to brighten their day a little by raising funds to allow the charity to continue their vital life-saving service.
How it works is simple: WebHealer's interactive map lists therapists who have committed to supporting Feel Good Friday by donating a proportion of their treatment costs to Samaritans. Most therapists are donating at least £3 per treatment to Samaritans - some are even donating as much as £20 per treatment.
"It was the first time I have taken part in anything like this and I was amazed by the response - to the point that I had to extend my Friday to the day before! And I raised £135 for Samaritans."
Amanda Weller, http://www.quantumbeing.co.uk (supported Feel Good Friday in 2012)
The team at WebHealer is inviting you to use the Therapy Map to find a participating therapist in your area and book directly for a treatment on Friday 1 February, when part of the cost will go directly to Samaritans. All sorts of therapies are available: reflexology, shiatsu massage, hypnotherapy, beauty treatments and many more.
Samaritans Executive Director of Fundraising and Communications, Rachel Kirby-Rider, said:
"We are delighted that WebHealer is supporting Feel Good Friday for the second year in a row and we wish them the best of luck. Funds raised from the day will allow us to continue to deliver our round-the-clock service for anyone going through a tough time."
WebHealer runs websites for thousands of professional therapists throughout the UK. In 2012, there were 110 therapists on the WebHealer interactive map; it proved so useful in helping people find those taking part in Feel Good Friday, that WebHealer is extending the map this year to include more than 250 therapists. It's also creating a PDF download poster for therapists to use locally - thus spreading the message even wider.
Phil Hulme, Director, WebHealer, added:
"We're also going to match any funds raised by our clients this year, thus doubling the amount we will be able to donate to Samaritans."
So book a session with one of the therapists on the Feel Good Friday Therapy Map - and feel twice as good. Not only will you be helping yourself with a therapy session, you'll be helping Samaritans at the same time.

As enterprises around the world struggle with their digital transformation efforts, many are finding that innovative digital teams are moving much faster than their hidebound IT organizations. Rather than struggling to convince traditional IT to get with the digital program, executives are taking advice from IT research firm Gartner, and encouraging existing IT to continue in their desultory ways. However, many CIOs are realizing the dangers of following Gartner’s advice. The central challenge ...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

There is an ever-growing explosion of new devices that are connected to the Internet using “cloud” solutions. This rapid growth is creating a massive new demand for efficient access to data. And it’s not just about connecting to that data anymore. This new demand is bringing new issues and challenges and it is important for companies to scale for the coming growth. And with that scaling comes the need for greater security, gathering and data analysis, storage, connectivity and, of course, the...
