The Google Holiday Giving Campaign is an annual tradition where Google employees all around the world receive $400 credit to redeem towards an eligible cause/organization of their choice. This is a week-long tradition to raise awareness and funds for charitable organizations all around the world. During this special Giving Week, Google gives every employee charity credit to donate to an organization of their choice and gives organizations the chance to showcase their work internally at a fair!
Kids Action For Kids is a Google.org-approved charity and had the chance to raise funds during Giving Week. Throughout the week, co-founders and brothers Martin and Anders Brekke initiated fundraising for KAFK by spreading the word (virtually online this year again, due to Covid) about our mission and work, and Google employees raised 30,487 Euros!
Along with Martin and Anders, several Google employees volunteered to help fund-raise. A special thank you to: Amalie, Amanda, Arne, Arushi, David, Devina, Eline, Erik, Hanna, Huseyin, Juliette, Lynn, Marathi, Maud, Max, Mia, Nessa, Peter, Pratik, Priska, Richard, Tom, Troels, and Zoe (the Google KAFK team).
Another huge thank you to everyone at Google who donated and helped during the week, and to Google for continuing their annual Giving Week. This donation means a lot for us and it will give surgeries to many kids with cleft lip and/or palate in Thailand.
