Every year a group of Rackers, their friends and family members get together to participate in a great charity called Extra Life. The main event is a marathon 24-hour game-a-thon full of every imaginable computer, console and tabletop game. Every penny raised goes to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
When it comes to community support, Rackspace is generous in giving back. As part of our second quarter Rack Gives Back program, San Francisco Rackers voted to make charitable donations to multiple organizations that focus primarily on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).Winners included the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Open Oakland and the Ada Initiative. But Rackers made the largest charitable gift to Black Girls Code (BGC).
Most companies are familiar with one or more types of Business Process Modeling. Many are also used to donating time, money or other resources to charity. While each are common practices, what happens when they collide and the gift is actually helping a non-profit diagram how it works? Well, through our Rack Gives Back program, a small group of Rackers and the San Antonio Food Bank are learning just that.
