This year at 212 Media Studios we decided to do our Christmas donations a little differently. We gave each employee $250 and said, “Give this to the charity of your choice, and share with the rest of the team why you made that choice.”
Water for Good is our choice for a local organization that has worldwide impact. I’m a good friend of the founder—and I know from his personal accounts how much of a difference clean water can make to a village. In the war-torn Central African Republic, the Water for Good headquarters was ransacked, and had many set-backs this year due to sectarian fighting, yet their work goes on in drilling and maintaining wells throughout the country. So this gift comes at a good time in helping to restore their operations.
The 212 team has a heart for giving back—and I’m proud of them for making this a priority year after year.
