The DonateMySport is a Volunteering initiative brought to you by Salesforce with its key aim to educate the public on the principles of organ donation and to highlight the worldwide shortage of donor organs. All around the world, there are thousands of people alive today, unified by a common bond. Some owe their lives to living donors, who are family members or friends, others to the generosity of perfect strangers, organ and tissue donors driven by the desire to give life to others after their death. The need for an urgent or life-saving transplant knows no boundaries – it affects people regardless of their gender, age, religion or ethnicity.
The Salesforce 1:1:1 integrated philanthropy model encourages its employees to make a difference in the communities where they live and work. The DonateMySport is one of these Initiatives and has been organised by salesforce employees who are passionate about raising the awareness of Organ Donation as well as how sport helps the recovery process of people that have had lifesaving organ transplantation.
