It’s Pi Day this week (3/14) and at VMware that means geeking out on giving back.
Together with our extended community, VMware will celebrate Pi Day tomorrow with a Service Learning fair, where employees can build connections with local causes and learn more about how they can give back.
Continuing our tradition of employee-led giving, VMware will donate $31,415.92 to local nonprofit causes and employee votes will determine how we slice the Pi.
Pi Day speaks to the spirit of community at VMware that recognizes our interconnectedness as citizens of the world. (Read more about VMware’s EPIC2 values here.)
You might remember that our last blog post described VMware’s Service Learning program. For us, Service Learning goes beyond traditional volunteering, including an explicit focus on learning – through reflection – on our experience of service. On Pi Day, we inspire each other to serve and learn. As part of the celebration, we’ll have an “Inspiration Station” where people share what inspires them. For me, #iServe because IT matters.
I invite you to geek out with us by sharing what inspires you to serve. Use the hashtag #iServe to follow the Pi Day conversation and share your own inspiration or experience on Twitter or Facebook or leave a comment below.
Following the event, we’ll be sharing a few fun pictures, so stay tuned to the Company Blog for Pi Day updates!
