Blitz Inc Bellevue has dedicated their entire philanthropic efforts of 2013 to this charity in particular. Tom Peck, Blitz Inc CEO, reviews the company’s current charity work: “Here at Blitz Inc, we understand that in order to achieve a higher level of fulfillment, we must reach out to those who are in need. Not only does this help a particular charity, it gives all of us a sense of fulfillment and making a change in the world.” Donations can also be made at http://support.operationsmile.org/
The global charity, Operation Smile, provides medical treatments, education, and aftercare for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate. Through a collaborative effort of over 5,000 medical volunteers from over 80 countries, Operation Smile provides free surgeries and implements self-sustaining policies and procedures through medical training of local medical staff. Since the charity utilizes medical volunteers, costs are as low as $240.00 per surgery.
In previous months, Blitz Inc Bellevue has attended home games of Bellevue College’s basketball team to raise funds for this charity. Tom Peck of Blitz Inc reviews the company’s previous results: “One of our client managers, Angela, has been a coach of the women’s basketball team at Bellevue College and suggested that we utilize the venue to raise funds. All of our employees rallied around this idea and we were able to raise over $300 from donations. For those who donated, we gave them an Operation Smile branded bracelet. We feel that this also helped raise awareness for the cause.” For more information on Blitz Inc, please visit http://www.careerbuilder.com/
