Oh, IMPACT Day. A 15 year tradition that puts Green Dotters in matching t-shirts and unleashes them upon their communities to "give back." From serving meals to the hungry to providing murals to art-starved walls in need, IMPACT Day is Deloitte's way of showing the community just how much they care for one day out of the year. And it's going down in two short days!
According to this guy, 26,000+ people will be missing from Deloitte offices on Friday, spreading their generosity, goodwill and blue shirts across more than 800 volunteer projects.
Did we mention there are shirts involved? OH SO MANY shirts.
We will save the cynicism previously expressed in 2010, 2011, and 2012 to simply say good for you guys! We hope everyone has a wonderful and heart-warming IMPACT Day. Remember, we're here to share your courageous acts of selflessness in corporate-branded t-shirts so feel free to check in on Friday to tell us all about those kids/hungry people/walls you're helping.
For those of you not in the spirit who will take this opportunity to catch up on work at the office without being annoyed by your ambitious but assy colleagues, good on you.
And should any non-Deloitte folks out there run into any charity-spreading Green Dots in blue shirts running wild in the streets, remember do not make eye contact. As we all know, public accountants are easily frightened when approached in unfamiliar situations such as outdoors on a Friday.
