Shakopee, MN, November 16, 2020 – OSAS, a leading provider of business software, is pleased to announce a recent contribution to the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation for its 2020 charitable giving campaign.
OSAS’s long-standing annual tradition was able to continue with employee participation in the first-ever virtual Halloween Charity Event. Staff engaged in an interactive day of online activities on October 30th – focusing efforts on fundraising and increasing awareness for the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation. Activities included friendly competition filled with games, a silent auction, costume and pumpkin contests, and a raffle for prizes – all designed to raise donations for this worthy organization. Also, employees were encouraged to give back through service to their local communities across the US, connecting with the company’s Volunteer Time-Off (VTO) program – a philanthropic opportunity for staff to receive up to 4 hours of paid time per year to make a positive difference. Every hour of volunteer time completed by the day of the event was monetized by OSAS with a match and added to donation totals. Along with the help of our preferred partner, TrueCommerce, we successfully raised over $9,600 for the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation – far exceeding the company’s goal!
Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation helps children and families in crisis throughout Vietnam including those living on the streets, runaway children, kids with disabilities, rural-urban migrants, child prisoners, and the rural poor. Extreme poverty has exposed them to the dangers of human trafficking, homelessness, sexual exploitation, drug abuse, and illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, requiring intervention. The foundation provides holistic services including rescue and crisis care for individuals in immediate danger, shelter, long-term support, and training to provide advocacy until assistance is no longer required.
“Each year, our Halloween Charity Fundraiser provides our staff the opportunity to give back to the local community and globally, and this year monetary donations went towards global efforts at the Blue Dragon – an organization that does amazing work,” stated Dr. Michael Bertini, OSAS CEO. “Despite the change of format this year, our fantastic staff stepped up to enthusiastically support this great cause along with volunteering time with organizations that matter most to them.”
