If you’ve clicked around this website a bit, you know that Tandem is committed to giving back via our “Tandem Empowers” initiatives. We enjoy donating services to ambitious yet disadvantaged individuals who are struggling to find meaningful work, and we make donations to humanitarian organizations that believe in the potential of people. Last year, Mercy Corps was Tandem's Charity of Choice. Throughout the past several months, I've enjoyed sharing information about their work and how Tandem has supported them. Along the way, many clients have been inspired to have a look at how Mercy Corps makes a difference in the world.
I am happy to announce that this year's Charity of Choice, CARE, is equally as impressive. CARE's biggest goal is: "Defending dignity. Fighting poverty." From CARE's Vision Statement:
We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
Under the leadership of Helene D. Gayle, CARE works diligently to build strong communities in the interest of fulfilling their mission. I know, from first-hand experience, that CARE does incredible work. This year, I even had the chance to visit Capitol Hill in order to advocate for the work CARE does in an effort to make the world a better place.
Are you looking for a new charity to support? Feel free to join Tandem and check out CARE. Or – if you’re just in the market for a new resume from Tandem – you can feel satisfied, knowing that you are also playing a part inTandem's commitment to empowering those who need a boost.
