Here at AOL, we're in the business of helping people, period. Although we try and live this value every day, each year on AOL's birthday, we take it to the next level with Monster Help Day, a global community service day where AOLers around the world come together as a company to help strengthen the communities we live and work in while sharing a rewarding experience with our colleagues. On Friday, May 18th, we are celebrating our third annual Monster Help Day – an initiative created by employees, for employees.

This year AOLers from 21 offices around the globe will support more than 38 charities by doing volunteer activities like building care kits for troops, serving lunches at food banks, and planting trees in local parks. From Bangalore to Palo Alto, AOL employees will take the day off from work and support the charitable organizations in our local communities while reinforcing one of our core values. Over the last two years AOL employees have spent over 50,000 hours doing community service on Monster Help Day and have helped nearly 100 charities. We've built houses, sent packages, and helped those most in need, take a look at what we accomplished at last year's event:
