Like many, I regard this time of year as a season of giving, rather than a season of getting. And based on my many blog posts over the year, you probably know how strongly I feel about Cause Marketing, giving profits to charity, and volunteering.

So as a token of my appreciation for your continued business and loyalty – as well as a giant thank you – VerticalResponse is giving back. We made a total holiday donation of $10,000 to 7 selected charities.

VR team members voted for the following 3 charities to each receive a $2,000 donation:

  1. Doctors Without Borders
  2. San Francisco Baykeeper
  3. The East Bay SPCA

In addition, our top company volunteers selected the following companies to each receive a $1,000 donation:

  1. Rainbow World Fund
  2. Central Asia Institute
  3. Share our Strength’s SF Chapter
  4. Renaissance Entrepreneurship Center

What are your favorite charities? Will your business or organization be donating, volunteering, or giving back this holiday season (or in the New Year)? I’d love to hear about it!
