Yearly, the WebDevStudios (WDS) team pulls together for a holiday fundraising activity that benefits charitable groups. While our efforts to give back are on the same page, we make it fun by dividing up into two teams and competing to raise the most money four our selected nonprofits. Everyone, get ready. The annual WDS Charity Challenge is back!
Let’s meet our teams and their charities. (Please note, the range of fundraising dates per each team is different due to technical difficulties when setting up the fundraisers.)
Team Big O
Led by CEO and Co-Founder, Brad Williams, Team Big O has chosen Big Orange Heart to support. If you’re not familiar with this organization, its mission is “to support and promote positive well-being and mental health within remote working communities.”
This is a mission particularly close to WDS’ heart because since our inception, we have been a 100% distributed company. With every team member working remotely, WDS strives to create a balanced, healthy company culture. Knowing that Big Orange Heart also strives to support all remote workers, Team Big O knew this was the right charity to back.
Team Big O’s fundraiser lasts through January 6, 2021. Give to Team Big O and Big Orange Heart by making your donation on the fundraising page. Thank you to RallyUp for their special efforts in setting up this fundraiser and tackling previous technical issues.
Right now, more than ever, medical aid is pertinent. That’s why Team Science, led by COO and Co-Founder, Lisa Sabin-Wilson, is raising funds for Direct Relief.
This nonprofit is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies. In response to COVID-19, Direct Relief is working in overdrive to get protective gear and critical care medications to as many health workers as possible, as quickly as possible, with emergency deliveries leaving daily for medical facilities across the U.S.
Because Team Science was able to kick off their fundraising efforts earlier, their fundraiser ends December 31, 2020. Submit your donation to Team Science and Direct Relief on this fundraising page.
How You Can Help
Both teams have set the goal of raising $2,500 for their respective charities. You can often find our team members on social media where they will be sharing links to their donation pages. You can also simply use the included links above to select your team and charity to make your donation. We appreciate your help because we wouldn’t be able to conduct our charity challenge without the generosity of others. Thank you for your support!
