TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Klick Health announced it will donate 25 cents to Free The Children every time someone watches its Epic Office #HolidayRemix video today as part of #GivingTuesday, the global day dedicated to giving back.
Click to tweet: Klick will donate a total of up to $15,000 to the international charity and educational partner, which believes in a world where young people are free to achieve their fullest potential, and empowers youth to remove barriers that prevent them from being active local and global citizens.
“We couldn’t think of a better day to launch our annual holiday video and are proud to be part of the #GivingTuesday movement, raising money and awareness for Free The Children,” said Klick CEO Leerom Segal. “We are strong believers in giving back to the community and hope our video will help make spirits extra bright this holiday season.”
Released today at klick.com/holiday, the video stars almost all of the digital agency’s 400+ employees orchestrating 134 everyday office sounds, intricately repeated and interlaced 1,256 times, to create a unique electronica rendition of Jingle Bells and high-octane dance party that can best be described as ‘David Guetta meets A Christmas Story.’ Employees wearing Santa suits and antlers bust a move while a staff DJ pumps up the volume in the office-turned-nightclub.
#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on December 2, 2014. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners— charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a global moment that is dedicated to giving around the world.
