This past month came and went almost in an instant, mainly because we all had a lot of things to do, and a lot of things to cherish and enjoy, like the forthcoming holiday season for example. But one cannot simply enjoy the festive season knowing the local and community’s challenges ahead. Think about the less fortunate, the ones who struggle to make ends meet – now more than ever, they need all the help they can get.

We, at IT Labs, have decided that November will be our Month of Giving Back, a month in which we focus on helping out the ones in need and spread solidarity and generosity.

Some of our colleagues decided to make the days of others better by sharing their heart-warming stories of when they helped someone in need. Others focused on the present and bought coffee or chocolate for colleagues and shared motivational and inspiring quotes to shine some light into their days.

And then there are those who used their cooking skills to cook something for the less fortunate. Meals cooked with love and compassion, with the hope that it will help someone have a tasty and nutritional meal. And on top of that? We donated some extra food supplies and clothes!

At the end of the day, we all played our role in making the world a bit better, a bit brighter, and a bit warmer. And what did it take? Just a few hours, a couple of ingredients and multiple warm hearts.
