Join in the PayPal Turkey Dash
This is very much a bit of fun, but even you most serious minded Tamebay readers might fancy joining in with the PayPal Turkey Dash. PayPal and Aardman Animations have teamed up for a charitable endeavour so users can make a cheeky donation this Christmas.
Basically it’s a way to make donating to a favoured charity fun and the more people donate, via PayPal Giving, the greater the change your favourite Turkey has of winning.
Alison Sagar is the chief marketing officer and head of consumer at PayPal UK and she said: “With Turkey Dash, we wanted to show the power of online payments to do good. Last Christmas, more than a million people in the UK made a donation to their favourite cause with PayPal. This year, we want to encourage even more donations!”
Aardman director Darren Dubicki added: “Who doesn’t love the idea of animated turkeys? With Turkey Dash, we’re playing to the great British sense of humour we all share, while encouraging people to dig deep for a good cause. We’ll be working on the animation right up until race day, which will be a little nerve wracking!”
