WHO WE ARE - The LinkedIn Biz Recruiting Culture Committee (BRCC) seeks to create a variety of experiences to bring the Biz Recruiting team together to have fun and create a sense of community, but also to do good wherever and whenever we can. This summer, we're coming together as one to raise funds for Kids in Need Foundation!
WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING - We're in a time of financial hardship for many in this country. Parents and caregivers will struggle more than usual this year to purchase school supplies for their children. Many teachers buy supplies for their classrooms and students each year out of their own pocket. Kids in Need Foundation seeks to take the financial burden off of teachers and students across the country by providing funds to classrooms. Kids in Need Foundation believes every child in America should have equal opportunity and access to a quality education. In 2021, the Kids In Need Foundation supported over 7.8 million students and 316,900 teachers through 13,807 under-resourced schools. More than $162 million was distributed in free supplies and classroom resources nationwide.
HOW YOU CAN HELP - Our goal is to raise $2,500 between July 11th and August 8th, 2022. (This is enough to fund 10 classrooms with the supplies they'll need for the coming school year!) But, you know us - we already have a stretch goal in mind. If we meet our goal early, we're not stopping!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE - This fundraiser is available to both full-time LinkedIn employees and contractors, whether you're in GBO, Corp TA, or another team! Everyone is welcome to donate, and sharing is encouraged. Promoting our fundraiser in your own networks will expand our reach and the number of donations.
