GA Agency signed up to participate and contribute to the fundraising, and it was a success! Thanks to the generosity of our colleagues and the firm, it was possible to raise funds that will help lighten up the Christmas days of many children.
On Friday 10 December, Save the Children organized a simple yet entertaining fundraising event to raise money to give a more magical Christmas to many children around the world. This initiative consists in wearing a jazzy jumper to protect from the cold weather and to spice up the office while donating for a good cause.
Save the Children is a global organisation that works across 122 countries to respond to major emergencies, deliver innovative development programmes, and make sure to build a better future for children worldwide. They work according to solid and shareable values, namely accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity, and integrity.
The agency decided to join because we believe in the mission of Save the Children and we saw this opportunity as a fun and creative way to support children in need. By pulling on our glittery Christmas jumpers and donating, it is possible to help the children get the basics they need to live like the other children. For instance, just £20 could get a child a back-to-school kit in Indonesia.
The spirit of generosity of our agency can be summarised by the words of Clelia, one of our colleagues: “I really appreciated the charitable initiative that my company organized for this Christmas. I believe doing this type of positive action shows the values that are at the core of GA Agency. I felt really proud of the people I work with when I saw the number of donations that we reached for Save the Children. I also was very happy to think maybe my small donation has made a difference in someone’s life.”
In addition to the many donations, several colleagues participated in the initiative by wearing their beautiful Christmas sweaters!
We take this festive occasion to wish you happy holidays.
