Someone Gives a Damn – Qube Does!

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Qube donates over a thousand gifts to show those that find this time of year lonely and difficult that ‘Someone Gives a Damn’ our Christmas charity project.

Our technical champions de-mystify technology both in and out of the Cloud.  We enable you to orchestrate your entire technology lifecycle by deploying your infrastructure of choice, with the service provider of your choice.  Keeping true to our company ethos we extended our ‘human’ side and donated 1,000+ gifts to worthy causes and local charities.  Originally set up by Polly Arrowsmith, CEO, the ‘Someone Gives a Damn’ project is now fully supported by all staff who are aware and want to do their bit for those that can find the festive season a very lonely and difficult time.

Although we still have a few donations left to give, so far the ‘Someone Gives a Damn’ project has delivered beautifully presented hand wrapped gifts to many London charities and worthy causes including a woman’s refuge, children’s charities, OAP Christmas parties, plus mental health and homeless charities.

Although we are unable to wave a magic wand, we hope that, by donating and hand delivering gifts we let those less fortunate that someone does care and make Christmas that little bit more bearable for them.

The story behind ‘Someone Gives a Damn’

When Polly was 9, her mother travelled back to her family home in Lapland and unfortunately, had a car crash.  This resulted in the family unable to spend Christmas together and the box of presents her mother sent didn’t arrive in time.

Polly recalls “My father took my sister and I to stay with family and friends, however, Christmas morning proved even more difficult as not only was my mother not there our relatives opened a huge pile of presents, whilst my sister and I unwrapped a box of chocolates, only to have the family dog eat them later.   I know this sounds like the script for a new Christmas film but the experience made me realise that not everyone has the idealistic family Christmas portrayed on the TV. So when I was able to I personally started to donate and volunteer to help worthy causes and charities.”

Having shared her story with the rest of the team it was clear Polly wasn’t alone in wanting to help, and now because we care Qube staff regularly volunteer at events, charities, wrap or donate.

Do you know of a London Charity worthy of a donation?

As a business we believe in putting our customers needs first and this project is no different, and so, for this year we’d like to increase the reach of our ‘Someone Gives a Damn’ project. However, disappointingly we had a number of no responses or a denial of donation due to policies, but as it’s not in our nature to give up we’d like to invite you to send details of why your nominated worthy cause or London Charity should be be considered for donations of toys, toiletries and chocolates this year to someonegivesadamn@qubems.com
