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.”
My wife and I will be donating to Kate’s Kart. Kate’s Kart is an organization that gives books to families with children in north-eastern Indiana hospitals. These books help provide a sense of normalcy and escape for families whose children have to endure intense surgeries, hospital stays, and otherwise incredible discomfort or pain. They supply free books to hospitalized children to keep for their enjoyment. Their goal is to promote literacy and encourage children, and their families, to read on an ongoing basis. Having three kids of my own, I have a hard time imagining one of them in the hospital. They all love to read, and I can only imagine the comfort and enjoyment that an organization like Kart’s Kart would bring.
The 212 team has a heart for giving back—and I’m proud of them for making this a priority year after year.
