Giving back with EDGE
2021 has been a challenging year for many. So, in the spirit of our Q4 thematic, having an impact, the EDGE committee felt that it was important to end the year feeling as though we made a difference to those around us. So instead of hosting a session, the EDGE team encouraged everyone in our organization to ‘give back’ to their favorite charity or community organizations via monetary, clothing or food donations. To incentivize everyone to give the EDGE team offered to match donations up to a total of $2,000. We are thrilled to say that because of everyone’s generosity we able to donate $500 to each Autism Canada, United Way of Greater Toronto, The First Nations Development Institute and TGTHR (Boulder, CO).
Overall, the initiative was a big success, and we plan on bringing back a version of ‘giving back’ in 2022.
