Thank You, Google!
We had the distinct honor of participating in Google's employee “G-week,” which is designed to champion philanthropy throughout the company. Luiz Barroso, a Google Fellow, was asked to select a nonprofit and selected IPPF/WHR as his charity of choice. We were delighted to be one of only fourteen organizations that participated in Google G-week, and proud to have raised the most donations of all the organizations! In addition, all employee donations were doubly matched by Google.
“The amazing response from Googlers to our challenge match was a highlight of our year,” said Catherine Warner, Luiz's wife and a longstanding supporter of IPPF/WHR. "We have chosen to support efforts that promote the health, education, personal dignity, and independence of women and girls because we believe that to be among the most financially-effective ways to improve all people’s lives. And frankly, because we believe every society is improved by the full participation of women. IPPF/WHR is an organization committed to those goals.”
We offer our sincerest gratitude to Google and its employees for their support.
