ISE Launches SeeHearTouch Charitable Programme (6/8/2012)
Show organisers will ‘enhance short lives with AV’ by donating to children’s hospice projects across Europe
In a new initiative designed to enhance the lives of terminally ill children, Integrated Systems Europe is launching ‘SeeHearTouch’ – a charitable programme that will equip children’s hospices with the latest home-cinema and media technology.
“The inspiration for SeeHearTouch comes from the work that our Sales Manager, Ian Morrish, has done in the UK, bringing together manufacturers, distributors and custom installers to deliver home-theatre systems to children’s hospices that would otherwise not be able to afford them,” explains Mike Blackman, Managing Director, Integrated Systems Events.
“At our last meeting, ISE’s Board of Directors approved a proposal to develop this idea and take it a stage further, enabling us to allocate part of our revenue each year to subsidising the work of industry stakeholders who undertake to design and install home theatres and media rooms in children’s hospices across the continent.”
Under the auspices of SeeHearTouch, Integrated Systems Events will reach out to umbrella groups representing children’s hospices in a number of European countries. ISE will also seek the support of manufacturers and distributors willing to donate equipment to each project, and that of integrators willing to undertake design and installation work. Part of the cost of that work will be met by SeeHearTouch.
“As well as giving us the chance to channel some of the proceeds of our event to a good cause, we believe SeeHearTouch is a wonderful way for our community to contribute its expertise in a way that really makes a difference to terminally ill children and the people who care for them,” Blackman concludes.
“We look forward to helping many children’s hospices become equipped with the latest multimedia technology, and will announce the first recipients of SeeHearTouch funding soon.”
