Thanks 2018 – time to give back

Thanks 2018 – time to give back

One thing I have been doing consistently on the last day of each year since I started BizTalk360 back in 2011 is donating a small amount to GOSH as a way of saying thank you for one more successful year. 

In spite of where I’m in the world, I make a note on my personal calendar to do this activity first thing on 31st December. 

A definition of success is different for different people, for me, it’s pretty simple, being healthy (people around me and myself),  moving forward a few steps ahead from where we have started and try and help others move forward as much as I can. As long as we are not standing still or moving backward and everyone around me is happy then it’s a successful year. 

This year we contributed $10k to GOSH bringing the total contribution to approximately $47,000 in the past 7 years. Here is the summary.

  • 2012 – $1,625
  • 2013 – $2,125
  • 2014 – $5,000
  • 2015 – $10,000
  • 2016 – £5,000
  • 2017 – $10,000
  • 2018 – $10,000

About GOSH

GOSH is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, housing the widest range of specialists under one roof. GOSH opened its doors back in 1852 with just 10 beds, today they get around 600 new patients every day. It was the first hospital in the UK dedicated solely to the treatment of children.

GOSH was supported by some of the great individuals like Charles Dickens, Queen Victoria and Diana Princess of Wales. 

We feel proud to be associated with such a great organization with such a great cause.

BizTalk360 – Thanks 2017, time to give back

One of the main thing on my agenda on the last working day of the year is to make a donation to GOSH (Great Ormand Street Hospital) charity. I started doing this since we launched BizTalk360 back in 2011.

Here is the summary of what we have contributed to GOSH in the last 5 years with the links to the articles.

bringing the total contribution to ~$36,000.

There are some incredible stories what GOSH has done to young people with challenges like  Moment 16-month-old boy hears sound for the first timeGift of life for little Elliott after long-awaited heart transplant

There are times in life when “thank you” doesn’t seem enough. There are some great people out there doing some incredible things, this is our way of giving little support to them. We hope to do more in the future.

Let the new year brings joy and happiness to everyone.
