When an opportunity arises to give back, Storm8 does not hesitate to show up to the plate. See our previous blogs about Giving Back to SJSU and the SFGH Toy & Book Drive.
You have probably heard of the social media phenomenon that is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This is an effort intended to help spread awareness and garner donations for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has since gone viral and many, including celebrities, have taken on the challenge. When our CEO was nominated, he invited the entire company to join him in completing the challenge (Watch the video here!). Not only did our CEO contribute to the cause, but the company will also be making a donation. Additionally, Storm8 is matching all employee donations to the ALS Association this week!
We’ve proven that we’re up to the challenge. Are you? We’re glad we were able to give to a worthy cause, and we hope we’ve helped bring awareness to this disease.
