For her birthday this year, our Annick Hernandez is once again swapping out personal presents for shared ones. We liked her note so much that we wanted to share it.
I’m about to turn a year older. And, this time, I’m actually wiser. I learned that 800 million people on this planet still don’t have access to clean drinking water, and I’m doing something about it.
This year, I’m giving up my birthday for charity: water.
Instead of giving me presents, or writing on my Facebook wall, please donate $23 for my 23rd birthday, and help me bring clean water to people in need.
Go to my campaign to donate: http://mycharitywater.org/annicks-birthday
What’s really cool is that 100% of the money we raise will directly fund water project costs in the field, and charity: water will prove every single dollar. When the project we help fund is complete, they’ll send us a digital completion report with GPS coordinates and photos of the community we helped. Here’s an example.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than by giving the gift of clean water to people in need. Please join me.
Thank you for your support! Annick

Our Toshiba crew recently headed to South America to participate in a roadshow for Toshiba’s new product line. They also shared our first campaign together: Toshi.
The team was pretty excited about their successful trip and decided to share a few photos from it.
Hard at work with our fantastic client.
In Peru, they were introduced to “Coy,” a delicious traditional Peruvian dish (no Toshis were hurt in the making of Coy).
As usual, the gravitational pull of clubs was too much for Luis to resist and he ended up playing at one of the top clubs in Chile.
What happened when the team found themselves needing an office on the go? The resourceful group created their own…even in bathrooms, or as Luis says, in the “toilet.”
Now that they’re back, all we can do is hope that they won’t be stingy with their Pisco sourvenirs. Sharing is caring.
The Rijksmuseum in Holland uniquely attracts visitors by bringing the 1642 Rembrandt painting, ”Night Watch,” to life.
