On the last Friday of each month, the halls of the Home Office are full of Colleagues sporting bright green “chari-tee” shirts. The shirts show support of the charity that will receive that month’s donations. Colleagues pay $2 a month to participate in the charity day, and many of them are enrolled in payroll deduction to automatically support each charity. Last December, we talked about how the charities are nominated by Colleagues and selected by lottery. In July, our Colleagues are supporting the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, an organization dedicated to teaching leadership, confidence and citizenship. Rainbow Girls volunteer for their community and travel around the world, visiting other clubs and making new friends. Along the way, they gather invaluable life skills. Currently, Rainbow Girls are working to help the Cavett Kids Foundation, whose mission is developing character, coping, and connection for kids battling life-threatening illnesses. Each month, American Fidelity Colleagues donate almost $1,000 to the featured organization. We’re proud to support the non-profit groups that work so hard to strengthen and improve the quality of life in the community where we live.
