Our recent support desk giveaway (in which we gave away Kayako software licenses and a number of gadgets via Twitter) ended with a grand finale: the final prize being a shiny new Macbook Air and a $1000.00 donation to the winner’s nominated charity.
The winner, Nerida Gill, chose to donate the money to Bosom Buddies of Australia – a breast cancer support charity providing support to women living with breast cancer, and their families. We could not have been more pleased that Nerida of Admin Bandit (a vendor of volunteer treasurer software) scooped the ultimate prize.
Nerida Gill said:
“A number of friends and family have suffered from breast cancer, so this cause is close to my heart, Bosom Buddies provides vital aftercare for women who have undergone painful treatment for a disease that is frightening and often makes them question who they are as women. Everyone at Bosom Buddies gives their time and energy simply because they care, This kind of selfless giving is the backbone of our communities.”
Marilyn Brookes, chair of the Bosom Buddie breast awareness education subcommittee, was delighted to receive the donation:
“Nerida’s donation is like a rainbow delivering a pot of gold. We raise all our own funds, which is time-consuming and hard work.”
As a business, we are acutely aware of our social responsibility. We’re ecstatic that our Twitter giveaway was able to spread some joy, and provide help to those who really need it.
Thank you once again to everyone who participated in the event. We look forward to doing something similar in the near future.
