Ivan Gracia, a Tech Lead based in Madrid, has volunteered 1,500 hours for the Land Search and Rescue team of the Spanish Red Cross since 2008.
"It was part of an old debt; when my climbing partner fell, we had to call in for a helicopter. I pledge my time and financial support because of the good they do all over the world."

Shamika Abraham, a Senior Specialist on the Security team in San Francisco, planned a day for our Black Twilions ERG to engage with students at Bret Harte Middle School in Oakland, CA.
“We were able to open the students' eyes to opportunities they didn't know existed, and show them that people who look like them can thrive working in tech.”
