Helping our people help others
We couldn’t imagine doing what we do without the help of our AO’ers, so we want to help create a better tomorrow for causes that are close to their hearts as well. Whether they’re raising money with a fun run or giving up some time to volunteer at a local animal shelter, we give our people the opportunity to do their own thing for charity.
Make A Difference Days
Sometimes it’s better to roll up your sleeves, get stuck in and do something amazing for charity – which is why we have Make A Difference days. Every year, AO’ers can go ‘MAD’ and swap two days at their desk to do some volunteer work – as long as their colleagues don’t miss them too much!
People can volunteer wherever they like. Whether that’s a local animal shelter, soup kitchen or a charity shop on the high street, they can use a regular working day to lend a hand and make a difference.
As well as working with our charity partners, we want to support our people when they’re fundraising in their spare time. AO’ers can apply for a boost from AO Smile*, where we’ll contribute to their final total – getting them closer to their goal, helping them to smash their targets.
Over the years, AO’ers 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. We can’t wait to see what they get up to next.
