London Marathon 2013: Thank you from Oxfam!

London Marathon 2013: Thank you from Oxfam!


Oxfam GB says thank you to its London Marathon runners – in person. This simple video lists the names of the individual runners who helped raise funds for Oxfam in 2013.

Each name has been written or crafted onto a piece of card or paper, and decorated by Oxfam staff.

While it wouldn’t make sense to thank all donors in this way, occasionally saying a public thank you like this, is worth trying. Imagine many of the runners sharing the video with their friends and contacts.
