thebigword believes it is important to give back to the community. Therefore, we, in the New York City office, participate in fundraising for a different philanthropy every year. This year, we really came together to support The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Our NYC office set a goal to raise at least $250 before The Light the Night Walk, which took place on October 3, 2012 in Basketball City in Manhattan. We began collecting donations at the end of August and surpassed our goal before the day of the walk. In fact, we even raised more money than the goal we had set for the ENTIRE year! Our goal for the year was $1000, and we already raised $1590! Nine volunteers from our office went to the walk this past week. Staff from all over the world, including the UK and Japan, contributed to the donations. thebigword is so proud to be able to help such an important life-changing philanthropy, and cannot wait to see how much more money we can raise by the end of this year!
