NYC Company Gives Workers $100 To Do More Good
Executives at Nylon.com decided it was time to give their employees a break from their busy day and encourage them to do something good.
The media company gave ten employees $100 each to do something nice for people in New York City and sent videographers with them to document the deeds. They called it the "Hundred Dollar Challenge."
Some employees bought pet food and toys to donate to a local shelter; while others helped out the homeless by buying them pizza and socks. One woman even took a taxi cab for a short while and paid the driver a big tip!
“The feedback was tremendous and everyone was really excited about giving back to the community,” Paul Greenberg, CEO of Nylon.com, said. “They felt really, really good for a long time afterwards.”
