SCN Israel making a small difference

Last week was my first week back to work after my maternity leave.

After 6 great months spent with my wonderful family, I was happily rejoined with my beloved colleagues at SCN. I truly felt that I have a lot to be thankful for, and was glad to be given the opportunity to help those who were less fortunate than me. I decided to join the volunteering activity initiated by my colleague Idit Herzog.

It was a cold Thursday afternoon, as the SCN Israel team left the office towards a shabby shed, not far from here. The organization we were volunteering for receives food from companies and businesses and feeds those in need.

We were given simple instructions: fill boxes of food, with some bare necessities, such as rice, sugar and milk.  These boxes were intended for families would not be able to properly feed their children.

After a couple of hours we finished our task. As a project manager, I am used to the elation that comes when one reaches a milestone, but this feeling was even better. We were actually making a small yet significant difference in someone else’s life.

These hours together helped our team bond, as we shared the feeling of being part of something that was bigger than us. I was really proud of SCN and my team.

Under the true spirit of SCN, we had a chance to contribute to our community which was truly rewarding!

      Hats off to SCN for putting points gained by users for more constructive use like World Food Program 2008, PlaNet Finance 2009. There are smaller groups / individual within SCN universe that have been  contributing towards society. Your blog goes on to highlight such groups / individual which is great. One such individual is Marcelo Ramos from Brazil.
      Best regards,
