In 2009, Computer Futures and our sibling recruitment brands made a commitment to SOS Children’s Villages to raise $1.5M for abandoned and orphaned children by 2018.
Since that day, our offices around the world have come together to raise an astounding $1.1M, becoming one of SOS Children’s Transformational Corporate Partners.
One of our greatest expedition took place in May of 2015. Nine employees began a journey from the Golden Gate Bridge south to the Santa Monica Pier with one thing on their minds; helping the children of SOS. Throughout the 400-mile journey, the coworkers raised 20K. Our company matches every dollar raised for SOS, turning the 400-mile journey into a $40K win for charity.
The efforts of these nine employees was an amazing push toward our $1.5M goal, and we have decided to make the bike ride an annual event.
Given the success of the California ride, Computer Futures has decided to get involved in a local bike ride from Houston to Austin, supporting Multiple Sclerosis, BP MS 150.
Organized by the National MS Society South Central Region, the BP MS 150 is the largest of the Bike MS events in the United States. This two-day fundraising bike ride brings together 13,000 cyclists and 3,500 volunteers. In 2015, they raised a record-breaking $20.3 million dollars toward creating a world free of MS.
In 2017, we will be entering our own team, and opening up spots for avid cyclists who wish to support this cause.
Please reach out to your local Computer Futures consultant for more information about our charity events and to find out how you can get involved.
