BrightInsight recently partnered with WeHero and Kids in Need to provide school supplies for children in local, underserved communities. Since BrightInsight has employees spread out around the globe, Kids in Need sourced non-profits in the US and EU, to make sure that each employee made an impact in their local communities.
Supplies were sent directly to the homes of BrightInsight volunteers to assemble and the event was held virtually. Each volunteer received three backpacks with school supplies and was tasked with decorating the bags and adding personalized, motivating notes for each child. While we assembled, we were quizzed by our host to answer questions that the children had prepared for us beforehand. Some very challenging questions indeed! Once we completed our boxes, they were sent off to be delivered to some very deserving children, who were thrilled to receive them.
One of BrightInsight’s core values is Real World Impact – we aim to positively impact healthcare globally by executing every day on our mission of accelerating digital health innovation for our biopharma and MedTech customers. This volunteer opportunity allowed us to step outside of our daily work and make a different kind of impact in our local communities. We look forward to finding new ways to continue to give back!
