The Big Hand

Zipcar has always been a big supporter of local community, from Boston to Balham we’ve been helping charities and not for profit organisations do amazing things in their local areas. Not only do we provide transport solutions for many but we also get involved in projects ranging from cleaning up rivers to refurbishing woodland areas.

We decided to combine all of the above with our social media channels to create ‘Zipcar’s Big Hand’. The project asked members to submit groups and organisations in their local community who could do with a little help to get an event or project off the ground. We then asked our own community to vote for the project they liked the most, the project with the most votes would win the use of Zipcars and vans, a team of volunteers and £1,000 in cash.

We received scores of great projects, which in turn received thousands of votes from our Facebook fans. After weeks of voting you picked ‘The Great Escape’ by the Camden Society, check out the video below to discover more about the Big Hand and this amazing project.
