“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
It’s the season of giving! So, in lieu of our corporate holiday party this year, we’re spreading the holiday spirit a bit further and donating to the charity of choice for each of our corporate employees. We asked them to share their reasoning for the non-profit they selected and we had such amazing and powerful response. I have a feeling this won’t be the last time we make such a request.
I’m overwhelmed and excited to say we donated over $7,000 to 45 different organizations, locally and internationally:
- Food shelves
- Homeless shelters
- Animal rescues
- Children in need of toys, food, clothing, and hospital care
- People affected by Alzheimer’s, Autism, Cancer, Crohn’s & Colitis, Diabetes, Down syndrome, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, Leukemia & Lymphoma, MS, and Organ, Eye, & Tissue donation
- Soldiers and their families affected by the trauma and experiences of active duty
We donated in memory of people we lost before we had a chance to tell them the impact they had on our lives, in honor of the little 4 legged critters who healed our hearts when we didn’t realize they needed healing, and out of respect for people who have fought a harder battle than we have had to fight.
We are thankful to be able to provide hope to organizations who provide hope to the people who find themselves in need of their services. It’s a gift we can give to them, but it is such a gift to us as well. Find other ways PMG has donated here!
Our wish for you this holiday season is that you are able to find the spirit of the holiday’s through the gift of both giving and receiving.
HAPPY HOLIDAY’S from your friends at PMG!
