This summer, Accurate Background continued its Kids Around the World partnership with another fund raising competition. Team members raised over $7,500 for meals to be packaged and shipped to South Africa! The top two fundraisers, Armida Steele and Ashley Mejia, won the opportunity to travel with Kids Around the World as Accurate Background ambassadors, to distribute food and build playgrounds in impoverished areas of South Africa.
For a third year, Accurate Background is partnering with Kids Around the World, KATW. This partnership was inspired by KATW's mission to support communities where meals and designated play areas are not plentiful. The past two years the office has held a friendly fundraising competition and sent the top two fundraisers to Paarl South Africa to built playgrounds and distribute hundreds of meals to families in need.
Last year, we were able to raise $8,500 in one day team members packed 32,000 meals in our Irvine headquarters. As one of last year's winners reflects below, the experience is life changing for the communities it supports and for the employees who participate.
For the second year in a row, the Accurate Background team supported non-profit Kids Around the World with a fundraiser to provide meals and playground equipment to South Africa. We kicked off our partnership with a little friendly competition. Team members competed to raise money to purchase meals to be packaged and sent to South Africa. The top two fundraisers received a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be an Accurate Background ambassador for Kids Around the World and will spend two weeks on a humanitarian trip to Paarl, South Africa.
