In honor of #GivingTuesday, we'd like to take a moment to highlight some of our cherished partners, our Charity of Choice organizations.
We choose to work with these organizations as a way of paying it forward. It’s our chance to give back to the communities where we live and work. As an agency, we want to be the change we want to see in the world, which is why we support these organizations via time and investment.
Help Blast Kids Into Space
In the U.S., #GivingTuesday always takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. It's a chance for all of us to put our dollars to a good cause (rather than a good deal). This year, we are supporting our U.S. Charity of Choice, the James R. Jordan Foundation. Funds raised will help send kids to Space Camp, an amazing program where students get unique opportunities to conduct hands-on science experiments, explore careers in S.T.E.A.M. and learn about the latest NASA projects.
RMHSI Christmas Program
In New Zealand, our two Charity of Choice organizations are Ronald McDonald House South Island, and Lyttelton Arts Factory in Christchurch. This holiday season, Ronald McDonald House South Island is looking for support with their Christmas Program. Being away from home can be extra challenging this time of year, which is why RMHSI works to bring joy to all these families. How can you help? Sponsor a wreath, buy a toy for a child or create a Christmas card to be hung up around the house.
International Volunteer Day 2019
While the U.S. team was taking a break to celebrate Thanksgiving with their families, our New Zealand team was planning their participation in International Volunteer Day later this week. Half our team will be lending their time to help the Ronald McDonald House South Island with their upcoming Polo Day event. The other half of our team will be building planter boxes with The Green Lab. These causes are important to our team and agency, and we are thrilled to be able to support them with our time.
In 1994, we started as a little kiwi agency that wanted to take marketing to the world. We quickly did just that—and continue to do so today. Hear the full story from our CEO, Daniel Thomas.
