Helping others is the best gift of all. Which is why we are pleased that we can continue the Christmas donation campaign of previous years once more. Sycor is donating a total of EUR 10,000 / approximately 11,000 USD to non-profit organizations again this year.
As in previous years, the Sycor Works Council, operating out of our German Headquarters, has pre-selected a short list of organizations. Choosing them is far from easy since there are so many projects that deserve support.
Ultimately a list of associations that are involved with freedom in a broader or narrower sense emerged.
"Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V." ensures that people around the world have access to clean drinking water, "Dunkelziffer e.V." fights child sexual abuse and child pornography, "Reporter ohne Grenzen e.V." documents violations against freedom of the press and information, and is dedicated to the safety of reporters and journalists.
All employees had the chance to co-determine the distribution of the total amount and cast a vote for the one closest to their heart.
The donation distribution based on the results is as follows:
Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V.
Reporter ohne Grenzen e.V.
Sycor is pleased to once again make a small contribution this year, assisting nonprofit organizations with their important work. Because, for Sycor, "We give IT a face" means helping others.
