This week, Cyber-Duck donated to World Jewish Relief (WJR) for their latest campaign: Boot Our Poverty 2012.
Now that the Euro 2012 football championships have begun in Poland and Ukraine, they are beginning to be showcased as modern, progressive and developing countries, but away from the cameras Ukraine is desperately poor and cannot afford the basic necessities of life such as food, heating, fuel and medicine.
The charity aims to raise awareness of these issues and help impoverished children and those with disabilities, who have to deal with these harsh conditions on a daily basis in Ukraine. If you would like to help contribute towards this great cause donate and follow the latest news on twitter by following the hash tag #bootoutpoverty.
Cyber-Duck have also made a further charitable contribution to the Marketing Manager of EGS and client, April Hatcher, who is raising funds for a great charity called Cry in the Dark. They are a charity who work tirelessly to improve the lives of children and young people marginalised by poverty, sickness or disability. April will embark on a 250 mile sponsored cycle ride with a team from her Church, who are all participating to raise money and awareness for such a great cause.
Lastly, we would like to congratulate Jessica, a 17 year old Sixth Form student from Jewish Free School in Kingsbury who successfully completed a week long work experience at Cyber-Duck. Jessica was delighted at having the opportunity to work at Cyber-Duck, stating: "I had a great time being at Cyber-Duck for work experience. The environment is friendly and welcoming making my time here enjoyable and exciting through the insight given into the company. I've picked up many skills and will hopefully be able to return one day and learn more."
