Akamai Customer Care East Accepts the #IceBucketChallenge

Many charitable organizations have been established over time and people have found innovative ways to give back to each charity. However, none of these efforts have come close to the magnitude with which the #IceBucketChallenge has spread awareness across different social mediums. This challenge has raised millions of dollars since its inception. Touched by the world's efforts to spread awareness and help raise charitable contributions to benefit Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS),we at Akamai Customer Care - East, decided to do our part. We took the Ice Bucket Challenge and we now nominate the Global Akamai teams for Customer Care and Professional Services, as well as our valued Customers to get involved! Our motive behind extending the challenge to these teams, as opposed to individuals, was to reach out to a larger audience.

Day in and out, charities provide services and needed support to people in communities all over the nation. While some may receive government grants or private donations, this is never enough to take care of the many causes they pursue. Charity car donations are a planned part of the non-profit organization's budget. These vehicle donations can make the difference in the kind of services they can offer. So if you donate vehicles you will help these organizations continue to function.
