At Together Digital, we are delighted to see one of our clients, Darkness Into Light, shortlisted for three eir Spider awards in the recent eir Spiders shortlist announcement.
Darkness Into Light is an annual, global event run by Pieta House, and the website we created with them ahead of their 2017 event has been shortlisted in the following categories:

About Darkness Into Light
Darkness Into Light is the flagship fundraising event for Pieta House, an organisation which assists people in their most difficult times of need. Pieta House provides free counselling and support to people experiencing suicidal ideation, people engaging in self-harm, and people who have been bereaved by suicide.
The charity gives hope to people when they need it most, and their Darkness Into Light event completely embodies this. At 150 venues worldwide, more than 100,000 people rise before dawn to walk together into the sunrise. It’s an awe-inspiring and emotional experience, with people uniting around the world for this symbolic event. And while it poignantly represents a journey towards hope, the event also raises crucial funds to enable Pieta House to continue offering free and critical support to those who need their help.
Brian Higgins, CEO of Pieta House, spoke to us about the impact their new digital platform had on the success of the event.
A great project to work on
Our team loved working on this and we are so pleased that the project and the event itself have being recognised by the Eir Spiders judging panel.
