In December, my department will be hosting a fundraiser called “Christmas is for Kids” which will help the children of the Atlanta Cancer Center. When I heard about the event, I quickly went around and found out who was in charge of it and offered to help. We came up with some posters to match the T-shirts that had been selected from the drawing for designs. Aflac allows children from 6 years old and older to submit their ideas for the T-shirts. I helped my coworker Denise put together a poster, and organized the actual fundraiser: a raffle where you can win a handful of cool items like a 60” TV, an iPad, or even just paid time off and the tickets were 1 for $5, 3 for $10, or 8 for $20. Personally, I have no idea why Aflac chose those prices and those gifts (I spent $20, and have 8 chances to win an iPad when I’m the only person from my department who bought any, I imagine the other departments are very similar), but the fundraiser ends on December 6th, and we are already at well over $500 raised just out of our building (Paul S. Amos building, one of 5 in Columbus). I have posted the fliers in all of the break rooms, restrooms, the cafeteria, outside each building division (A-F), and have them plastered all over my cubicle. I want to meet with the header of fundraising at the Aflac Children’s Cancer Center of Atlanta and see how else I can help them with things like this.
