Data#3 has brought the Christmas cheer early with the announcement of 12 charities it will support in its 12 Days of Christmas program.
The program runs across the first 12 working days in December and is designed to support charities, not-for-profit and community groups through donations, volunteering and fundraising activities.
Data#3 group general manager Laurence Baynham said the program enabled staff to personally make a difference.
This year the company will support the Australian Marine Conservation Society, World Vision, Make A Wish Foundation, RSPCA, Sydney Homeless Connect, Ronald McDonald House, Cerebral Palsy Education Centre, Jason Rich Foundation, Michah Projects, Foodbank and Juvenile Diabetes Research.
Baynham said The Hunger Project had been selected as the lead charity for the 12 days of Christmas program in 2013.
“Our 12 Days of Christmas program showcases twelve different charities that all have a special meaning to the Data#3 team,” he said.
"As an organisation, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we work and live, and the charities that are close to our employees’ hearts and minds.”
Cathy Burke, CEO, The Hunger Project Australia, said her organisation was committed to building a world where every woman, man and child leads a healthy life of self-reliance and dignity.
“The Hunger Project Australia greatly values Data#3's partnership during the holiday season,” she said.
“Together we are empowering women and men around the world, unlocking their capacity, creativity and leadership so they can end their own hunger.”
