Going the Extra Mile to Help Others
At LivePerson, we are passionate about reaching out into the community and helping those around us. Through the efforts of our global team, LivePerson staff give back to the communities around them in support of several worthy organizations.
Dawn to Dusk (D2D) is one of our LivePerson Cares initiatives. Since the inception of this initiative in 2010, D2D has raised over GBP 31,000 for a variety of charities including REACH, Cancer Research, Naomi House & Jack's Place, and Fat Meir's kitchen. Other LivePerson Cares initiatives support additional worldwide oganizations including Feeding NYC, Open Hand Atlanta and other projects local to each of our offices.
Over the past year and a half our EMEA team has partnered with Naomi House Childrens Hospice and as a result they have formed a strong personal relationship with them. Naomi House is a charity that provides support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families. The support includes; respite care, end of life care, emergency support, bereavement support, family support and hospice at home.
It costs around GBP 5million a year to run Naomi House. With only 10% of their funding coming from the Department of Health, their work is only possible because of the generous support from people such as ourselves and those who contribute to our fundraising activities.
Take a moment to watch this video that illustrates the amazing work being done by this organization:
Last year we raised over GBP21,300 for Naomi House with our Dawn to Dusk event which involved cycling, mountain biking and walking in torrential rain for 10 hours! In addition to raising funds for them, we also help them with IT, marketing, creating their promotional dvds, donations for their shops, painting their outside furniture, Christmas presents for the children, Easter egg donations and gardening days where we send in teams to help maintain their beautiful gardens. We regularly meet with Naomi House to find new ways that we can support them and we regard them as part of the LivePerson family. Here's a video recap of our 2011 D2D effort:
This year on the 21st June, our team will be completing a grueling 15 hour mountain trek in Snowdonia, Wales to again raise funds for Naomi House. Collectively the team of 41 will be trekking 44 miles across 7 peaks. It's going to be a really big challenge for our team to complete, but we have a deep commitment in going the extra mile to help others-- just like the team at Naomi House.
We'd like to invite you to take a moment to help us achieve our fundraising goals on behalf of Naomi House. 100% donations go straight to Naomi House and even the smallest amount is worthwhile and very much appreciated. Thank you!
