On the eve of our company’s 26th anniversary, final preparations are taking place for our second annual Discover Your Impact Day tomorrow, Discovery Communications’ company-wide volunteer effort spanning more than 20 countries and 35 offices. What better way to celebrate this milestone than by giving back to our local communities.
Discover Your Impact Day was launched last year and this year more than 3,000 employees (and a few faces you may recognize from Discovery Channel and TLC) will be making a difference through more than 140 projects – everything from working with animals (Gayle will be at Washington Animal Rescue League) to refurbishing local schools (you’ll find me at George Washington Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia).
We’ll report back next week on the people and projects, but you can join in on Twitter by following @DiscoveryComm and the #ourimpact hashtag as our employees in the Asia-Pacific region begin sharing updates from their sites tonight. Thank you to all of the organizations that have opened their doors to our employees…here’s to making an impact!
