AdKarma and the Community
by Molly Gallagher
AdKarma plays a strong role in giving back to the community. I’m proud to be part of a company that is so passionate about our home. We’re not trying to gain clients by getting our name out, (for those of you who haven’t been to Columbia… we’re not exactly the headquarters of online advertising), we’re simply a staff of caring, committed employees.
From blood drives and adopting families at Christmas, my favorite way we connect with the community is through Coyote Hill. Coyote Hill, a local charity, is a home for abused and neglected children. They do a great job of providing the kids with a comfortable lifestyle while away from their homes. Each day, an employee takes a break in their busy day to spend time with the children. My hour of tutoring the kids after school has turned into playing “horse” and walking the kids home for dinner. This summer, they even took a trip out to the office for a visit. We even participate in their annual fundraiser, the Annual Boots n’ Bids for kids auction. I know the AdKarma team is looking forward to it next month.
While volunteering in the community is personally rewarding, it also brings good morale and attitude to the office environment. This is a piece of the pie that makes AdKarma as successful as we are.
