Summary[edit]

The-Unreachables[1] (hyphenated) is a UK-based fundraising company headquartered in London, UK. The-Unreachables was launched in December 2014 with the aim of connecting celebrities with local and international charities to raise awareness and funds. The company makes use of sweepstakes to run campaigns to raise funds for charities.

The company uses the fame and influence of celebrities to raise awareness and funds for charity, while giving people an opportunity to meet those celebrities. In exchange for a small donation to charity, each donor receives exclusive digital content from the celebrity, as well as being entered into a draw to win a one-on-one video chat with the celebrity.

History[edit]

Richard Shanks thought up the concept for The-Unreachables in July 2014 after attending the Millionaire Business School hosted by Peter Sage and Errol Abramson. Shanks wanted to make it possible for everyday people to meet the celebrities they viewed as "unreachable", while raising funds for charity.

The first person Shanks brought on board to join The-Unreachables was Jenna Shanks as CEO in July 2014, straight after he conceived the idea.

The company was registered as a private company on 5 October 2014 and trademarked on 21 February 2015.
