What a fantastic response to the Harbour ‘call to arms’. Harbour IT staff, neighbours and customers came together last Friday, raising much needed funds for those trying to rebuild their lives after Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Together we raised $3,255 directly from hosting four Cake-Aid events in Sydney, Norwest, Melbourne and Mudgee. Donations were complemented with generous online contributions and the selling of raffle tickets.
Congratulations to Kaushal Sebastian, Sydney Service Desk, Harbour IT !! Your Microsoft Surface prize is on the way. Many thanks to Tony Elbatti from the Salvation Army for drawing the winner. All funds raised will go to the Salvation Army Philippines appeal.
But wait there’s more!….Our total donations will actually be much higher as our staff in Manila have committed to donating upwards of 142 hours of salaried work time – all of which Harbour IT will also be matching!
All in all nearly $8000 was raised.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make Friday’s events so successful. This will now enable hundreds of lives to be assisted to get back on their feet after this horrific event.
FANTASTIC job everyone!
