It’s a great feeling when you get to give something back. For the last three years Crisp has been supporting the work of international diabetes charity, JDRF - now the world’s leading charitable funder of Type 1 Diabetes research. JDRF’s fundraising goes directly into research to cure, treat and prevent the autoimmune condition and provide information for children, adults and parents living with it, at all stages from diagnosis and beyond.
In the wake of Facebook’s moderator training manuals being seen by The Guardian newspaper on Sunday, the world has been questioning if Facebook should decide what is and isn’t acceptable online; why videos of violent deaths are not always being deleted; and why photos of child abuse are only marked as ‘disturbing’.
For the third year running Crisp is joining over a thousand other organizations in the UK to support Safer Internet Day, #SID2017. This international day calls upon everyone from young people and parents to teachers and law enforcement to 'unite for a better internet'.
