It began with a simple plea from Anthea Cox, vice president of human resources at Commonwealth Bank – let’s reach into our own pockets and raise funds to make life a little brighter for the less fortunate. The hint caught on with the instant popularity of new Beyonce release. Staff donations poured in. Executive management threw out a challenge—raise a minimum of $5,500 ‐‐ $10 per person for every single employee in the Commonwealth Bank family ‐‐ and we will match whatever you raise. By the time it was over, an idea born out of wanting to help the less fortunate had turned into a reality, raising $11,200, enough to help The Salvation Army and Great Commission Ministries feed hundreds of people and provide food packages to go.
