Elefante – 02

WHEN GRATITUDE TAKES FORMThis month we bring you a handful of inspiring stories about giving. 2015 was an incredible year for Mark Zuckerberg’s philanthropic initiatives. Blake Mycoskie, founder of TOMS, continues to support an ecosystem of businesses that give back to different communities. Coca-Cola imposes its holiday agenda in Mexico. We applaud how a group of citizens provide Syrian migrants with life-supporting aid. At E Buró, we share some of our recent volunteer efforts this month: Cheering sick children, giving art workshops to kids, and touching the lives of 16 people and 1 dog in 1 hour on the streets around our office.
