A few weeks after Irma hit Florida, the BBC conference was on full swing in Orlando. Instead of taking our technical equipment back home, we decided to offer it up as charity to those in need.
Irma Hurricane, which swept through the Atlantic coast in September 2017, was among the strongest hurricanes ever recorded. It hit many islands in the Caribbean and left in its wake serious damage in Florida.
This November, was the second time we have participated at the BBC conference, which took place just a few weeks after Irma, in Orlando. Usually, we rent the technical equipment we need for the business talks on the show floor, but this time we wanted to do it differently.
We instead bought it and offered it to the kids at the Makvirag Preschool and Elementary School of Orlando.
“It’s just a television and few other pieces of equipment, but we really wanted to help to someone in need. We looked for an organization that serves the local community and one that can use the equipment for a good cause. We didn’t have to search for long as we found the cute children of the Makvirag School. It’s great seeing the kids using the television! 🙂 ” – Niki Csonka, marketing assistant.
See you next time in Orlando!
