For the past two years, the team at MonkeyMedia Software has been involved in the Adopt-A-Family program through the Salvation Army here in Vancouver.
This is a really amazing charity program that allows us, as a company, to get involved with the community and provide help to families in need at this time of year. Through donations collected in the workplace, we are able to purchase gifts, food, and clothing for an entire family – items that are very much appreciated by those families.
Every month, we have a team building event, and for December, we are making the charity the focus of the day. This way, each and every Monkey is involved in the gift buying process and will be able to see the fruits of their giving.
We are dividing the entire company into teams, giving each team details of the family member(s) assigned to them as well as gift ideas, some cash to spend, and then pointing them in the direction of a local superstore.
So, if you see a bunch of Monkeys whizzing around with shopping carts in Vancouver, don’t be alarmed – it’s all for a good cause!
And stay tuned for our team event video, coming soon!
