In February, GiveMe5 partnered with Harboring Hearts, a nonprofit dedicated to providing critical, financial and emotional assistance for heart patients and their families. Through the GiveMe5 Game Show, our partners put their heart health knowledge to the test to fund “Hope 4 Heart Days”, a personalized day of adventure and activities for a recovered heart disease patient and their family. Thank you to the companies that took the pledge and made an impact on these patients lives!
In Q4, #GiveMe5 partnered with Knock Knock Give a Sock and Christmas in the City on the Happy Holiday Carnival for kids living in homeless shelters. All of the companies that have taken the pledge in 2019 took over the carnival booths at the event to bring holiday cheer to the community and over 300 kids. Such an incredible day made possible by our GiveMe5 partners!
In Q3 we hosted the next event in our #GiveMe5 series: Dodgeball for DonorsChoose.org. Teams came together for a friendly dodgeball competition to raise awareness of DonorsChoose.org and donate $10,000 to the PS 20 Anna Silver schools benefiting over 180 students!! We were so happy to have DonorsChoose.org and PS 20 Anna Silver onsite at the event and participate in the games. Thank you to the companies that took the pledge to prioritize purpose driven entertainment that gives back to community!
GiveMe5 kicked off in Q2 in honor of Women’s Health Month. The event included an intense workout instructed by Holly Rilinger the founder of the LIFTED method. Next, a powerhouse panel of women from the advertising industry took the stage to talk about how to manage work and wellness, what wellness really means and how companies can do more to support. Hear from the attendees on the importance of social impact events and why you should #TakeThePledge.
Stillwell Partners Summer of Service Experience
Stillwell Partners Summer of Service Day allowed the team to give back during their week long team offsite. We partnered with WINNYC, a nonprofit that provides safe housing, critical services, and ground-breaking programs to help homeless women and their children rebuild their lives to host a back to school day for their kids. The party was filled with t-shirt and keychain making, freeze dance, photo booth fun and a chicken fingers and fries party.
