As an extraordinary year concludes, Awin Global donates $32,300 AUD on behalf of our partners to local COVID-supporting charities worldwide.
This year has forced everyone to review the status quo and quickly adapt to something we had no real comprehension of. A core focus of ours throughout 2020 was to ensure that clients felt supported during a difficult time. We also thought it made sense to extend that support to those who need it most across this festive season. Below is the Awin COO Adam Ross, who personally thanks clients for their continued partnership throughout 2020 and touches upon our global initiative.
This year has forged many new learnings and has shown how we all provide pillars of strength and solidarity within our communities when it is needed the most. With that said, Awin Group felt it appropriate to invest our holiday budget into rebuilding communities where Awin Group’s offices are. While much work is still required, Commission Factory is delighted to support the initiative in any way that we can alongside Awin. Below is an overview of local charities that have been donated to below with hyperlinks in case you would like to donate too
