12 Charities in 12 Days

Australia’s leading Information and Communications Technology Company Data#3 today launched its 12 Days of Christmas program designed to support charities and community groups across Australia.

12 Days of Christmas, is Data#3’s annual charity giving program that runs across the first twelve working days in December. Each day, one of the twelve different charitable organisations is announced to the business and will be supported by pledged donations and fundraising activities.

Data#3 CEO, Laurence Baynham said that the continued success of the program has highlighted the importance for Australian businesses to give back to the wider community, particularly during the Christmas season.

“Data#3 has a long history of engaging with and supporting charitable organisations and projects within the community. The 12 Days of Christmas program is an event that the Data#3 Team look forward to every year. It gives us the opportunity to support the communities in which we work and live, and the charities our employees are passionate about.”

“The charity we have chosen to launch the 12 Days of Christmas Program for 2014 is Bush Heritage Australia.” Baynham concluded.

James Murray, Supporter Relations Team Leader, Bush Heritage Australia also commented “A big thank you to the team at Data#3 from all of us here at Bush Heritage Australia! Bush Heritage strives to protect landscapes with significant conservation value throughout Australia, and we know the importance of working with others to help achieve this goal – we could not do any of this work without the contributions of so many. Your support toward our work in conservation over the festive season is greatly appreciated by all here.”
