“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller
These words from Helen Keller express exactly how we think and feel. We are so thankful for all of our blessings. At this special time of year, and after the years of uncertainty the events industry and the entire globe have experienced, we decided to give back uniquely through our clients and spread good cheer and charity in the world. After all, who needs another box of gourmet coffee, or wine, chocolate, and cheese baskets? Well, ok, must admit we wouldn’t turn that down. But most of us don’t need more stuff.
In lieu of physical holiday gifts this year, we decided to give to charities in our clients’ honor. We sent a holiday themed email giving our clients the choice of four of our favorite charities: Women for Women International, Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, and Covenant House.
Women For Women International invests in women survivors of war and conflict, providing them with social and economic skills to transform their own lives.
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. They support food banks, food pantries, and meal programs with food, funds, and advocacy.
World Central Kitchen is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. We build resilient food systems with locally led solutions.
Covenant House is a large privately funded agency in the Americas providing shelter, food, immediate crisis care, and other services to homeless and runaway youth.
When someone clicked on their chosen charity from the email, a beautiful holiday video from TPG appeared thanking them for their donation. The response from our clients was incredible! TPG honored our clients by donating to the charities of their choice. They expressed that it felt amazing to click the button to give back.
Despite the challenges we’ve all been through over the past years, most of our lives and our families are relatively safe and secure. For many, however, the holidays can be a lonely, stressful, and difficult time. This is the perfect time of year to give back to the community in ways that make a real impact. We are proud of our clients who stepped up to provide comfort to those less fortunate and brighten the lives of people around the world. And we were happy to be a part of it. As it turns out, hope for the holidays is the best gift of all!
As for the coffee, wine, chocolate, and cheese? Who needs the extra pounds?
From your TPG team, we wish you peace, joy, love, health, and happiness.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS! ❄❄
