Amidst Recession, TIG Global Develops Philanthropy Task Force
Travel E-Marketing Company Dedicates Resources to Giving Back During Tough Times
“I was truly overwhelmed when TIG Global offered to build a new website for us and handle our e-marketing strategy,” said Joey Schmitz, co-founder of Bike to the Beach. “Our previous web marketing efforts were extremely basic, but our redesigned website will now allow us to track donor dollars and exponentially increase our fundraising efforts. TIG Global’s service team has listened to each of our needs and educated us on the best web solutions for our organization.”
TIG Global’s philanthropy task force has also taken on a variety of other hands-on projects. As a team, the company wore matching jerseys and ran in the annual Race for the Cure to raise money for breast cancer research. The employees also held a food drive for the Manna Food Center, collected over 900 articles of clothing for the Lamia Afghan Foundation, participated in the Washington, D.C. AIDS walk, and donated their large collections of hotel toiletries to a local shelter. Additionally, every other week the company’s cafeteria is transformed into a production line for the Manna Food Center. Employees spend their lunch hours preparing Smart Sacks, backpacks filled with nutritious food, for underprivileged children to ensure they have meals over the weekends when school lunches are not available to sustain them.
“While regularly giving back to the community is extremely important, it becomes even more vital during tough times,” said Trip Schneck, president at TIG Global. “Despite the economy, TIG Global has been fortunate enough to continue to grow and excel. We wanted to use this momentum to encourage all of our employees to get involved and help others in great need.”
