AOLers Build Hope for People in Need

AOL is in the business of helping people, and a bunch of AOLers lent a hand to build gifts for those in need during AOL's Epic Sales Conference in December. Many members of the AOL Sales and Advertising teams took time out of the day to handcraft rocking chairs, wheelchairs, bicycles and more, to give to those in need during the holiday season.

These gifts will benefit both Big Brothers Big Sisters by giving bicycles to children on the waiting list for a proper big brother or sister and the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center by donating wheelchairs to a hospital with a surplus of veterans and a shortage of wheelchairs.

We'd like to take a moment to thank these great organizations for the work that they do and for their help in making this happen.

Take a look at a gallery of AOLers hard at work, and some of the recipients trying out their new gifts below. To learn more AOL's Corporate Social Responsibility efforts, visit the AOL Corporate Site.

AOLers Join Forces for Cycle for Survival 2013


AOLers Cycle for Survival

AOL takes great pride in being a company who's in the business of helping people and AOLer Janet Balis saw this first-hand when AOL stood behind her and Cycle for Survival, raising money for cancer research. Janet's close friend Jennifer Goodman Linn founded the charity in 2007 and in the years that followed, grew the effort to become one of the fastest growing non-profits in the country, raising over $18 million. As she writes on HuffPost Impact:
I wanted to introduce this important cause to my new home at AOL. The response was overwhelming and very touching, particularly in the year which would be our first time ever cycling without Jen, who lost her battle with a rare cancer called Sarcoma in July 2011. In that emotional moment, I suddenly felt like I was very much part of a team. The corporate cause team sprung into action to spread the word. An AOL sales executive decided that he not only wanted to start a team in Detroit, but that he would do it as a satellite experience since there was not even an Equinox location there for the spinning class. Across the company, I marveled as people sprung into action -- this truly was a place that did what it said.
