MAYKOR joins the Giving Tuesday initiative
MAYKOR announces it has joined the global day of giving #GivingTuesday, initiated by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). The "Week of Recognition" flash mob lasts from 22-28 November, and today the company has announced the start of cooperation with the Deti Nashi (Our Children) charity fund, with which it has a joint project aimed at development and vocational education in the field of IT for former orphanage children. Everybody is welcome to participate in the project.

On #GivingTuesday - November 29 - the Nashi Deti fund will begin its charitable fundraising at the website Blago.ru to support computer literacy classes and activities aimed at career guidance in orphanages in Safonovo and Shatalovo in the Smolensk Region. MAYKOR doubles the amount of donations collected via the website and encourages its staff, clients and partners in the market to join the initiative. Support for this project is a new stage for the company in developing the corporate social programs "Engineer as a Profession", aimed at promoting IT occupations, and "A Caring Future with MAYKOR", which aims to help former orphanage children in their social integration.

In addition, MAYKOR volunteers will hold charitable events within the company during #GivingTuesday. In particular, employees are collecting goods in cooperation with the "Good Things" project which will be later sold: the raised funds will go to the Butovo Rehabilitation Center for the Disabled (Moscow) to assist children with serious illnesses.

MAYKOR will also present the needy with IT equipment and materials available in stock.

Russia first joined the global charity event #GivingTuesday in 2016. On November 29, commercial companies, NGOs, advocacy groups and advocates will take part in campaigns, fundraising and charity events. The initiative has been successfully held since 2012. This year 71 countries are going to participate. More than 450 companies have already announced their readiness to support the initiative.
