Happy New Year! 🎉 We hope you had a wonderful Christmas period and found some time to recharge "between the years".

Today I'd like to give you the results of our Xmas Donations campaign.

I'm happy to report that 78 of our members took part and distributed their virtual 5€ among the four organizations we picked:

Thanks to everyone who participated! We have decided to double each donation and will transfer the sums within the next days.

Just like every year, we'd like to use the Christmas season to give something back by supporting some charitable organizations, and involve our members in the process! 😄

This is how it works: from suggestions from our community, we picked four organizations we'd like to support, and each member gets 5€ (in virtual currency) that they can allocate among them. We (Uplink) will then — after Christmas, when everybody has had the chance to participate — sum up the allocated amounts and donate the money to these organizations.

We've had a fantastic year here at Uplink — the size of our community more than doubled to almost 600 members, we hosted regular craft beer meetups in Berlin where we had the chance to meet many of our members in person, and we moved to a nicer office — just to name a few highlights of 2018.

A few weeks ago, we sat down and thought about how we could give something back to our community. Quickly we came to the conclusion that we wouldn't impress anyone with a small gadget or voucher — and let's be honest, it would probably end up in a drawer or trash bin anyway. So we thought "how about engaging our community to give something back to other worthy causes?"
