On the international day of love, VMware employees will once again celebrate their true love for giving back to the community with an event called “Speed Dating with a Cause – Fall in Love with a Cause”.
The Idea Behind
A few years ago, members of the internal VMware Bulgaria volunteering organization – Sofia Heroes Giving Network, came up with the idea for this cool event. The format is based on Speed Dating as a matchmaking process where single people meet several potential partners consequently. They get to talk to each person for a few minutes, before moving on to the next one.
The idea was adapted to fit our goal of bringing causes and people closer together. This gives us the chance to meet with several nonprofit organizations and fall in love with causes that touch our hearts the most.
This year, seven nonprofit organizations will visit our office to tell us all about their amazing causes. We will have the pleasure to meet representatives of Volontime, Gorata.bg, Council of Refugee Women in Bulgaria, Dare2Care Animals, Radost Foundation, Natural Explorers, Bulgaria Touch.
This will give us an opportunity to learn about their upcoming initiatives and how we can join efforts towards a positive change in our community.

Caring for people and the environment is a vital piece of VMware’s culture. The Sofia Heroes Giving Network is part of a global structure – the VMware Foundation, which nurtures us, the citizen philanthropists, by supporting the nonprofits of our choice.
It’s a privilege that we have the freedom to show our love for Service Learning by organizing or participating in volunteering and charity events.
