Getting chilly for charity

I’m not sure if you’ve been on the Internet lately, but there’s this “ice bucket challenge” thing going around. Sure enough, some members of the AgileBits crew were challenged, and in good form … we challenged all of our co-workers.

We’ve made a donation to ALS (as well as several other causes near and dear to our hearts) and thoroughly enjoyed helping our teammates take the plunge.

Now that we’ve done our good deed for the week, we challenge YOU. Make the world a better place. Donate to a worthy cause and dump a bucket of ice water on a friend.

Help 1Password support Adults with Learning Disabilities

FSsite01We like to help people here at AgileBits, whether or not it involves keeping your passwords and other things safe. When we discovered we will soon have an opportunity to do a little of both, we couldn’t resist, and we wanted to see if you could lend a hand.

Frederick Sarran likes to ride bikes. He also happens to work near Greig Allen, one of our Customer Support Happiness Engineers, for Balnagask Court in Torry, Aberdeen, a complex for Adults with Learning Disabilities (ALD) and Mental Health issues. Balnagask Court helps these adults with activities like outings, arts and crafts, and music. On August 8, Frederick is going to start riding 450 miles all over Scotland, UK to raise money so Balnagask Court can do more. This is where we all come in.

You can donate to Balnagask Court at Frederick’s website and help spread the word with his Facebook Page. Every little bit helps, and his biking trip is fully funded which means 100% of your donations will help Balnagask Court provide better communal rooms, new chairs and equipment, and more activities that do wonders to enrich the lives of adults with learning disabilities.

To say thanks for your donation, Frederick will promote you, your company, or simply your personal Twitter account on his website and on the ride. AgileBits made a donation to sponsor the ride so Frederick will wear a couple of our t-shirts for parts of the trip. We hope you can chip in too.
