Pi day 2019 fundraiser is finally complete!
This is my third year of running this fundraiser at Salesforce - I get executives and ICs to agree to be bid on to take a whipped cream pie in the face with the winning bid going to the charity of their choice (most people then match these bids). After that, Salesforce matches employee donations up to $2500/$5000 per year based on how much you've volunteered. So frequently, $1 in bids is $4 to the charity of choice.
This year before Salesforce matches, I personally raised $13k (omg holy crap!) for Planned Parenthood.
Across the three offices that hosted the event this year, if everyone uses that corporate matching - we're looking at raising above $125k spread across about 25 charities.
I'm both so grateful to everyone that participates every year, and happy to be able to bring such a fun event to so many people!
