Every year Google offices across the globe host “Google Giving Week”, a week where philanthropic organizations that have been approved by Google.org have the chance to raise money from Google employees all over the world. Throughout the year, Google matches every donation raised to an approved charity. 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 was approved as a Google.org-approved charity and had the chance to raise funds during Giving Week. Throughout the week, KAFK Vice Chairman Martin Brekke initiated fundraising for KAFK by spreading the word about our mission and work, and Google employees raised over $8,000!
A huge thank you to everyone at Google who donated and helped during the week, and to Google for continuing their annual Giving Week.
