Worldwide, Pledge-1% moves companies to give back to society. One percent of their time, capital, products or profit is donated to a charitable organization of their choice.
Atlassian, Salesforce and Rally launched this initiative in 2014. Today, over 10,000 members around the world are already involved. XALT is part of this community.
Drinking mulled wine for a good cause
Thanks to the initiative of employee Benedikt Dollinger, TEAM XALT was able to do its part at the Leipzig Christmas market. Together with the Round Table Leipzig mulled wine was served to visitors for a good cause. Julia, Ben, Philipp, Anton and Jan took on several shifts at the stand during their working hours. The proceeds from the sale of the hot delicacy (there was of course also children's punch) will be donated to 100% to various charitable organizations.
In addition to the donation amount, it was nice to talk to countless people about social projects and thereby also learn more about the interlocutor. Really everyone had a story in which you could find the basic idea of "doing something good" again.
And in the end, what matters is not how many Euros you've collected or how many hours you've worked, but that you put the needs of others above your own and do something.
This year, in addition to the mulled wine stand, Round Table is again offering their Leipzig gastronomy quartet. A total of 32 Leipzig restaurateurs are participating in this campaign. On each card of the quartet is still a voucher for the respective place, a win-win situation, because the proceeds will be donated to 100% again this year.
The donations go to the Parents' Aid
In 2023, the proceeds of the project will again go entirely to the Parents' Aid for Children with Cancer Leipzig e.V.. Founded in June 1990, this association supports families and accompanies children, adolescents and young adults with cancer on their difficult journey.
A team from the fields of psychology, social work, sports, art and music therapy is used to provide the best possible support for the children.

We look forward to being a part of more campaigns in the future, adding value to the community.
