Charitable giving has been a hallmark at Hammerberg for 20 years. This year, in addition to our annual charitable giving program, Hammerberg Lawyers LLP is making three special donations to mark our 20th Anniversary, linked to a staff contest. We asked our employees to come up with ideas that have the number 20 in them, connected to a charitable act or donation. On July 20th, September 20th and November 20th, we will honor the three charities and ideas which received the most votes.
We received many creative and heartfelt entries in our staff-led charitable giving initiative, and the first winning charity was announced today: Our staff has voted for Education Without Borders as their first charity of choice in our 20th Anniversary Year of Giving!
We will be donating 20 months of education to this deserving Canadian non-profit organization that focuses on providing educational opportunities for disadvantaged and at-risk children in South Africa and Canada to further development and alleviate poverty. For more information about Education Without Borders, please visithttps://www.educationwithoutborders.ca/ Visit them on Facebook @EwBfans and check out the video of EwB Alumni talking about how their grades improved and how mentorship has given them the confidence to succeed and become tomorrow’s leaders. Keep an eye out in September for our next chosen charity!
