Company values: Why we decided to donate all of our gift budget this year

Author: Alexander Bihn, App Marketing Content Manager

COVID-19 has thrown quite a few curveballs these past two years and continues to do so. Current events are overwhelming: We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and are finding comfort despite all the upheaval.

This year at Customlytics made us realize how privileged we are during this pandemic. Continuously growing made us appreciate the small things in life. In the urge to be environmentally, economically and socially conscious and represent these attributes as a company, we made the decision to give back this year. We had a set Christmas gift budget last year and decided to double the amount for the donation this year.

It has been a great opportunity to work with you all. You have contributed to the continued success of our companies with your work in respective roles. Each of you is to be appreciated for it.

This holiday season, we sincerely hope we speak for our respected clients and partners when we join forces with World Vision to donate:

10.622 euros

We hope this money will help a few more families get back on their feet. Your support makes a powerful difference as we continue to work together towards a mobile future.

Looking back at last year, this is what our office looked like preparing all of the physical gifts for our clients and partners:

While it’s always nice to be thanked for, with a physical gift during the holiday season, we hope you share our belief that giving back to others can be a purposeful and important present as well. 

We spent some time researching the concept and purpose driving the organization World Vision, and we found ourselves deeply connected to their cause. They are addressing real problems in our society, and because we admire the integrity and efficiency with which they use their resources to establish services and directly support the target populations, we are writing today to express our support of their pursuit in the form of a monetary donation. Thank you for your courage and vision. Please keep up the good work.

But what do these diligent efforts to improve the world around us mean in context? We are honored to present you with this contribution and hope that it will help provide you with the resources you need to continue your endeavors.

We worked on a package with World Vision, that caters to real-life problems in different regions of this planet, and we are here to explain to you what each part means:
