AOL CELEBRATES 6th ANNUAL MONSTER HELP DAY

We are in the business of helping people. Period.

Strengthening communities around the world is a core part of AOL - - as a company it is in our DNA - - built into our mission of culture and code. One of AOL's core values is about helping people, and to date, AOL has donated more than 70 billion impressions to over 500 nonprofits that our teams, advertisers and consumers care most about.

  • 3,000 AOLers volunteering internationally

  • More than 85 projects around the world
  • AOLers in 27 cities across the globe are getting involved

AOL Celebrates Our 28th Birthday With the Fourth Monster Help Day


Beverly Hills office, Operation Gratitude

Monster Help Day is back! Today, AOL is embarking on its fourth Monster Help Day whereby over 2,000 employees will be supporting 54 volunteer projects across 21 offices worldwide. Monster Help Day, which started in honor of AOL's 25th birthday, (we are now 28!) enables employees to step away from their busy working lives and give back to the communities around them.

Employees will engage in a variety of different service activities including Hurricane Sandy Disaster response cleanup, painting wall-sized canvases for hospitals and even reading to elementary school children in underserved schools to promote early literacy. The day of service AOLers are doing will total roughly 10,000 hours of community service.

One of our core values at AOL is that we are in the business of helping people, period. And although AOL employees demonstrate this value each and every day, they take it one step further on Monster Help Day.

The charities are in the communities in which our offices are located, as well as near and dear to our employees' hearts. Visit the Monster Help Day website to learn more about AOL's Monster Help Day and the charities we are working with.
