I normally don’t share too much insight with what happens at my day job because I’d like to continue keeping it, but yesterday we got an e-mail that I just can’t help but boast about. In a mere ten days of fundraising for hurricane relief, employees made over $38,000 in donations…which was matched by another $38,000 from the company itself. Along with a special grant from our Employee Association, we donated a total of $86,000 to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts… :O
It’s stuff like this that reminds me just how good of a company that I work for, despite some of the other things that might bother me from day to day. Certainly good to see that our little group of about 800 people could step up to make a difference!
