It’s no secret that large corporations all over the globe understand they have a social responsibility to aid charitable causes across a wide spectrum of societal needs. Web host provider FatCow is aware of that responsibility, as demonstrated by their most recent round of charitable giving; their annual holiday party which resulted in a total of $10,000 in donations to three prominent charities. The donations come only a few months after FatCow generously donated a portion of their sales to the American Cancer Society and its fight against breast cancer.
For this most recent charitable event, the web host gave each of its employees who attended the annual holiday party $2,000 in fake money to gamble during the course of the casino-themed party. The idea behind the gambling was to take as much “cash” from your fellow competitors and end up with the biggest pot at the end of the night. The top four winners were given the privilege of choosing the charities the company would donate to this year.
“The night was full of a lot of laughter and playful competitiveness,” said FatCow marketing manager Paul Bukhovko. “It was a great opportunity for co-workers to establish a sense of camaraderie, while simultaneously supporting some great charities.”
Among the top three charities to benefit from the company’s generosity are Community VOICES, Toys for Tots, and Coats for Kids. Between all of the selected charities FatCow will be supporting both national and regional organizations alike. Consumers interested in seeing a complete list of the charities the web host has assisted this year, can find that list on the FatCow’s website.
