JumpStory is a company that values people more than anything, not only employees but also people in need. Every week we do a sales competition at our headquarters in Denmark, where we celebrate the weekly top seller. We’ve decided to give the winner quite a different prize than the usual bonus or cinema tickets etc.
At JumpStory you win a check of 100 US Dollars to donate to a charity of your own choice. The winner is chosen every week on Friday, and he or she has enough time to think about which charity to choose over the weekend. The sales winner announces their charity at the office the following week along with an explanation of why they decided to donate to the particular cause.
Below you can read more about each of the amazing causes that our staff members have decided to support. Every year our company donates more than 4,000 USD to charity through our ‘Who Cares Wins’ sales-competition.
