Mad Days & Boosts

Helping our people help others

Nothing would be possible at AO without the hard work and determination of our AOers and we’re proud that so many of them take that ethic with them outside of the office too.

Crawling or walking; running or dancing; swimming or flying – however they choose to do their own bit of good, well support it.

Make A Difference Days

Nothing’s better than rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in for charity. That’s why we offer MAD (Make A Difference) days. Every year, AOers can go ‘MAD’ and swap two days at their desk for two days out in the wild doing good.

People can volunteer wherever they like doing whatever they like – as long as it benefits those who need it most, and, over the past 12 months, a whopping 40 charities have had a helping hand from us.

Fundraising boosts

AOers also have the option to apply for a boost from AO Smile Foundation*, where we’ll contribute to their final total – helping to get them closer to or smash their target.

Over the years, AOers have raised money by pushing themselves to their limits, facing their fears and trying something new – all to put a smile on someone else’s face. And over the past 12 months, we’ve happily provided boosts for 25 UK charities. We can’t wait to see what our people get up to next.
