Garlandpr client Rohan Gunatillake, creator of mindfulness app Buddhify has raised over £54,000 from his crowd funding Kickstarter campaign which ended on 10 June. The campaign aimed to raise £25,000 to produce a set of 54 Cards for Mindfulness, but managed to raise over double the target originally set.
Rohan had pledged to gift 100 sets to the Mental Health Foundation if the campaign raised over £40,000. These cards are now in production and will be donated in September.
The cards are a gentle way to bring mindfulness to life and can be placed anywhere around the home or office to prompt people, whatever they are doing.
Mindfulness Everywhere’s app, Buddhify, offers guided meditation for to do anywhere whether you are travelling, at work or going to sleep. More information can be found here: www.mindfulnesseverywhere.io
Dobbies designed, built and planted two urban ‘parklets’ to create peaceful, colourful, scent-filled oases in the heart of Scotland’s capital city. One is themed to reflect George Street’s high fashion offering ‘Colours’ and the other to emphasise its outstanding food and drink ‘Cocktails’. It’s an exciting experiment to show what can be done in a busy city centre street, and fits in with Edinburgh’s ongoing trial to look at various ways in which George Street can be an even more attractive and enticing place for residents and visitors to the city. Working closely with Edinburgh City Council and Essential Edinburgh garlandpr, on behalf of Dobbies, secured extensive coverage of the initiative including the front page of the Edinburgh Evening News, the Scotsman and STV.
garlandpr was briefed to support the relaunch of buddhify2 – an app which helps people meditate wherever they are and whatever they are doing. It has been hugely successful – it was the number one health and fitness app in 28 different countries and has helped people meditate for over five million minutes.
