ReadyTalk in the Community: Update from Our Charitable Contributions Committee

2013 has been a busy year at ReadyTalk. We’ve made enhancements to our awesome productivity tools, kicked off exciting new partner integrations, and we recently launched one of our largest product releases ever - desktop video conferencing. I’m happy to report that ReadyTalkers have not only been hard at work in our office, but in our community as well. Our employees volunteered at several fundraising events in Q1 coordinated by members of our dedicated Charitable Contributions Committee.

Brown Elementary StudentsOn a chilly day in February, many of us shuffled in to work in our slippers and pajamas to participate in the 8th Annual PJ Day for Denver’s Road Home, a local charity working to end homelessness in the metro area. Almost $500,000 was raised this year in cash and in-kind donations from around the city, and ReadyTalk was proud to be part of this event.

In March, ReadyTalkers spent the day at Denver’s Brown Elementary School as part of Junior Achievement’s JA in a Day program. We spent the day with 2nd and 3rd graders teaching curriculums and leading activities focused on economic development and responsibilities, local businesses, and careers within our community and city.  The kids were smart, enthusiastic, and fun, and we all enjoyed stepping out of our comfort zone to go back to school for a day.

Forzability Riders

ReadyTalk was also a sponsor of the annual Forzability Ride at Forza Fitness and Performance Club. Our active employees sweated it out in a spin-a-thon to raise funds for the National Sports Center for the Disabled. Way to go guys!

Speaking of riding, our committee is also gearing up to sponsor some great outdoor charity rides for our employees this summer. Stay tuned for an update on that in Q2, and thanks to all of my fellow employees who volunteered their time so far this year!
