It’s been six years since Giving Tuesday was organized and recognized internationally as a day and movement that celebrates philanthropy. But the movement goes beyond a day, and a number of people on our team are passionately involved with various foundation and charities all year long. In honor of Giving Tuesday we wanted to share a few words on their behalf about their work and the charities they care about.

In addition to serving as our Organizational Development HR, Maayan is the marketing and recruitment coordinator for Lobby 99, a non-profit organization that promotes socioeconomic matters, economic reform, and transparency in the Israeli government through hired lobbyists.
