Another exceptional year

Before the pandemic, this event was carried out in a physical setting, organizing activities for employees and their families. However, this is the second year that the HP volunteers have organized all the fundraising activities virtually. The team has organized more than 30 online learning and leisure activities addressed to HP employees and families. The activities organized had the purpose to raised money while sharing knowledge on different topics and entertaining the participants. For example, the HP team hosted a session about sign language, 3D design workshops, programming for children, an Escape Room, a Bingo session, and much more!

One of the most remarkable and amusing initiatives has been the composition of this year’s HP Charity Journey song, written and played by a few HP volunteers!

You can see all the organized activities here.

Thanks to these activities organized from June to October– HP employees have achieved 33.000 euros in donations, which was matched by HP donating the same amount of money to add to the final total contributions reaching more than 66.080 euro

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made it possible!
