12 Days of IRIS Christmas: "On the 8th day of Christmas, we looked back at all the ways...
…we’d spent our IRIS ‘Giving Back’ days.”
Every once in a while, we get together with Claus Industries and their accountant, Patrick, to ensure they’re getting the most out of their IRIS software.
After all business-related matters have been concluded, Santa (Claus Industries’ CEO), usually asks what we, as a sizeable, market-leading company, have done to deserve our Christmas presents this year.
He’s always particularly interested in how our employees spend their ‘Giving Back’ days, which involve IRIS workers forgoing a normal working day to help out at a local or national charity, or take part in a charitable fundraising event to raise money.
He recently asked us what charities IRIS employees have dedicated their time and/or money to in 2016 (Christmas is the ultimate time for giving, after all).
As we know he reads this blog religiously (Hi, Santa), we thought this would be the best medium through which to share that information, hopefully raising further awareness (and funds) in the process.
We also know that everybody has their own charitable organisation(s) close to their hearts (Santa donates heavily to the National Elf Service, for instance), but even the smallest of contributions is always welcome.
(He also wanted us to remind you not to forget to donate your mince pies and sherry on Christmas Eve…)
