Charitable Giving is a big part of the culture at HomeAway, but as a global company, it's sometimes tough to find causes / charities that we can all get behind.
Breast Cancer is unfortunately a disease that impacts people around the globe. In fact, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. To show our support for our colleagues, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, daughters and friends who've been personally affected by this disease, we coordinated a global Pink Friday on October 24.
Each team celebrated a little differently, from bake sales and pink breakfasts to smoothies and donated fashion illustrations, but the one commonality is our team members all over the world wore pink to help raise awareness for this deadly disease.
We also raised money! In total our teams donated more than $5,000 to breast cancer charities in their local communities.
Here are some of the fun photos from the day.
