Charitable signing fee
Every new hire at ToThePoint receives a Charitable Signing Fee of €500 to spend on a charity of their choosing. By shaping our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), we try to make a difference in creating an Evolutionary responsible world for the future.
World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
Gilian Sterckx, Frontend Developer from OneDot, has chosen WWF as the recipient of his Charitable Signing Fee of €500.
WWF does more than saving animals
The reason why Gilian chooses this charity is because WWF stands for way more than merely trying to save animals. They are actually striving for improving the climate we all share by pointing out the necessity of humans living in harmony with nature. This is an important issue, because we’re all a part of this great world of ours.
By protecting certain lands from ecological disasters, Gilian believes WWF thus makes a huge difference in protecting the animals and ecosystems that inhabit those environments.
What is your favourite animal?
Gilian’s favourite animal is his dog, Snuffel (a Jack-Russel Terrier).
Which animal must be protected the most?
If I have to pick one animal to save from extinction, it would be the bees. A much neglected species that is imperative for the survival of almost any ecosystem.Gilian Sterckx
Opinion on ToThePoint’s Corporate Social Responsibility?
[The Charitable Signing Fee Program] is a great initiative to give everyone a chance at supporting a charity of their choosing. ToThePoint’s Charitable Signing Fee program clearly showcases an awareness of responsibility to a world we all share, as they try to push it a little further to the better side. I’m thankful for this opportunity.Gilian Sterckx
If you would have unlimited money, what charity would you choose?
Gilian says he would solely choose initiatives that create technologies that tackle climate change in a future-proof manner, such as zero-carbon energy sources and a better method of managing waste / recycling.
Doing our part
ToThePoint feels humbled by Gilian’s pick for his Charitable Signing Fee. Just like he, we’re glad to do our part!
As our car park is going green (1, 2) and the fresh wave of charity support is rolling out, we hope to keep making a difference in creating a future-proof evolutionary responsible world.
