In the beginning of the year Datagroup launched a charity sports project “DataHeart: sport for life”. The project's goal is to engage the company's employees into various sports and activities thus raising funds to provide surgeries for children with congenial heart defects.
The employees register their sports activities in a special online system. Each registered training earns funds which company transfers for charity. If an employee is not involved into sports, they can make a personal contribution.
Running, swimming, training means helping save little hearts! So far the company has already raised funds to help 7-month-old Masha Gaydash: May 23 successful surgical occlusion was performed at Amosov National Institute of Cardiovascular Surgery. Now the fundraising continues to purchase special surgery equipment to help three more kids. The information on wards and projects is constantly updated on the website of the project's partner – Ukrainian philanthropic marketplace.
For the employees of other companies who have already joined the project, there is a separate form.
“When I first heard about the employees' idea to start a DataHeart project, I felt very proud. The project, started within a company and initiated by its staff, means for me as a leader that we are moving in the right direction. DataHeart has two goals: first, to introduce more people to sports and make us healthier, and second – charity. Children are our future, and giving them the opportunity to grow up healthy is a great joy.
I personally supported this project and encourage even more employees to engage into sports. It's a particular joy to welcome the "athletes" from other companies who offered their efforts and assistance. We invite all Ukrainian companies to join the DataHeart project. Your employees can register in the system and transfer funds to young patients. A partner company will receive a report on its employees' trainings and will be able to transfer additional funds to the wards of the project. Join us! Together we can achieve more!" commented Mykhailo Shelemba, Datagroup CEO.
