Natixis’ 10th anniversary: solidarity

To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Natixis invited all employees throughout the world to a collective and digital celebration.

For one of the events, Natixis invited employees to participate in a solidarity initiative with a clicking game for the benefit of UNICEF.

Organized in teams, participants were asked to 'virtually' blow out the company's birthday candles by clicking on the flames. The response was massive with some 200 teams and more than 510,000 clicks.

Each click helped collect funds for UNICEF's emergency programs in Syria, which consist in providing emergency supplies for the winter (clothes, food vouchers and other supplies) to close to 2.5 million children victims of the conflict in that part of the world.

On 5 January 2016, Ghinwa, 7, and her brother Alaa, 11, at Al-Khalidia Al-Khamisa informal settlement in Homs. As their house in this unfinished building remains in a dire condition and many repairs are needed to make it suitable for winter, Ghinwa and Alaa are trying to get warm with blankets.

UNICEF is targeting one million children throughout the country with winter supplies during the 2015/2016 winter season. So far, winter clothing kits and blankets have reached 95,000 children while delivery and distribution is ongoing for 545,000 children. In addition, 2,000 heaters are currently being installed in classrooms benefiting 80,000 children.
