Days like this

So back in October, I blogged about a touching experience at a Cineplex Odeon cinema and featured a charity called Gordon House Youth S.E.A.R.Ch. that was responsible for getting the young man that I wrote about at Cineplex Odeon, his job.

Then, just before Christmas, I noticed that Gordon House Youth S.E.A.R.Ch. posted a proposal at GiveMeaning trying to raise money for 12 computers and wrote a follow-up piece on my blog directing readers to their proposal.

Gordon House needs the computers so that they can provide at-risk youth with a means of searching for jobs online, updating their resumes and providing basic IT skills development.

And yesterday, I got a call from a man named Sergio Vettese who works for Softchoice Corporation, a publicly-traded (TSX-SO) Toronto-based company, which describes themselves doing for IT what I'm trying to do at GiveMeaning. Here's what they say:

"A distinctive corporate culture developed at Softchoice, one that continues to promoted integrity, forward-thinking and individual responsibility as the basis for every customer interaction. To this day Softchoice Corporation’s focus on finding better ways to help customers buy and manage their IT resources remains the central motivating force behind everything we do.

Sergio has facilitated a donation of 12 Laptops to Gordon House S.E.A.R.C.H, thus fulfilling the proposal before it even got its 100 votes!

I'm most certainly going to turn this into a Podcast! It's stories like this that make all of us GiveMeaning giddy!

Thanks Softchoice Corporation!!!
