Wow. I just looked at my calendar for this week at work, and I’ve got Nothing. Seriously. My daily reminders, and then nothing.
But Di, you’re saying. You’re a phone monkey. Of course your calendar is blank!
Well, yes, that would stand to reason. However, for the last two months, I have been ass-deep in my company’s community giving campaign, and have actually had some work to do. Not work relating to my actual “job” of course, but work nonetheless.
And it paid off! We had a goal of over $68,000…we raised over $78,000!!! And, might I mention, my company has about 200 people. That’s an average of almost $400 per person. It makes me all happy that I work for a company that not only encourages its employees to give back to the community, but gives us ways to do it, and lets us work up a killer week so that people are all excited about giving. It kinda makes me squee a bit.
But, alas, community giving is over, and I am back to my regular job. I guess it’s good that the busy season is coming up….?
