DXC Cares: The LemonAID program raises money for blind children’s education

DXC’s Bucharest Center hosted a fundraising event on the 23rd of November called LemonAID in which we encouraged our employees’ participation in the aim to help blind children’s education and sustain their long-term development and integration.

Our beneficiary was Fundatia Cartea Calatoarea (the Traveling Book Organization), which for over 20 years has supported the integration of people with visual impairments into society by facilitating access to information, education and employment.

The event took place on each cafeteria floor where DXC has active employees, offering them fresh squeezed lemonade and homemade cookies prepared by our CSR volunteers, who with their dedication managed to organize and coordinate the two-hour event.

The reward was amazing, managing to raise 2.600 RON (~$700 USD) out of which we could help the creation of special textbooks for some blind children who need them the most:

  • 328 pages of a written manual with pictures and tables (e.g., literature, history, geography, biology)
  • 218 pages of a written manual for studying foreign languages
  • 164 pages of a written manual containing tables and scientific formulas (e.g., mathematics, physics, chemistry)

These types of events help us share kindness with those in need and remind us to be grateful every day for the amazing gifts we have.

I’m proud to have been given the opportunity to meet and work with these great people our DXC volunteer team has, caring and smart people who learned to take action in a “too busy world.”
