The first initiative, „Raise your hand, I'll give you a friend", provides stuffed animals for children in hospitals. We all know how scary a hospital can be for a small child – waiting for medical exams, tests, and all kinds of medical interventions can be a really daunting experience for the little ones. Providing kids with stuffed animals to keep them company in hospitals is a heart warming and creative way to ease the fear and make the little heroes more comfortable. In support of this initiative, our colleagues collected huge boxes full of stuffed animals to be donated to children and bring a smile to their faces.
The other initiative that team Hungary organized in June was a Blood Drive, in celebration of National Blood Donation Day. The brave volunteers donated a total of 25 litres of blood. Furthermore, the event raised awareness among other companies' employees in the same office building. Our Hungarian colleagues are true heroes as donating blood saves lives!
The two initiatives brought everyone together in celebration of National Blood Donation Day and helping children. At the end of the day, volunteers were left with a sense of meaning and the rewarding feeling of having helped others.
