It’s that time of year again. As December rolls around and the countdown to Christmas begins in earnest, it’s easy to get totally caught up in the festive spirit. Yet amid the present buying, office parties and reunions with friends and family, Christmas is also a time to take stock, and to think of others.
At Venari Partners, we are passionate about changing people's lives for the better, whether through finding the right job for them or helping those less fortunate than ourselves. Consideration and compassion for others are more than just core values for us – we see it as our duty to make a difference. In tough times such as these, it’s especially important for us to do our bit.
10 years of Giving Tuesday
Giving Tuesday, which is marked five days after the Thanksgiving holiday, was established 10 years ago with a simple premise: ‘a day that encourages people to do good’. From its origins in New York City, Giving Tuesday has spread into a global movement in which participants volunteer, donate money, organise community events, and take part in other activities for the benefit of others.
Each year, we ask clients and candidates to suggest charities for us to donate to
Once again, we are kicking off our ‘Charity Secret Santa’ campaign on this worldwide day of goodwill. Rather than spending on cards and unsustainable gifts at Christmas, as a business we prefer to give our network the opportunity to nominate a charity for us to donate to instead.
In 2021, we were delighted to donate to nine fantastic causes:
We would be grateful to hear from you with suggestions for the charity you’d like to nominate. Please get in touch below with the name of your chosen organisation, and a few lines on why you think they are particularly deserving.
We’d like to wish you a very happy holiday season, and all the best for the new year!
