KDAN Teams Up with The Garden of Hope Foundation for International Women's Day Initiative

KDAN has always prioritized corporate sustainability and endeavors to foster an inclusive workplace culture. This International Women’s Day, we’re honored to lend our support to The Garden of Hope Foundation, an NGO dedicated to assisting marginalized children, adolescents, and women, while advocating for a world free from gender bias and violence. We aim to translate the care of our employees into impactful donations, spreading hope through tangible assistance. Additionally, this article features interviews with several KDAN employees who participated in the event, sharing their perspectives and insights.

What inspired you to get involved in this donation initiative?

A: There are many foundations or NGOs that dedicate themselves to noble causes, but it can be overwhelming to navigate through all the information and decide where to direct donations. Some might also feel restricted by limited resources or the high thresholds set by certain organizations. Fortunately, this donation initiative, organized by the company in honor of International Women’s Day, offers a lower barrier to entry, making it easier for individuals to contribute, even with packed schedules.

B: This donation drive not only resonates with the essence of International Women’s Day, with its main focus on supporting women, but it also holds personal importance for me as a woman. Additionally, I have some items at home that are sitting idle and don’t serve any purpose to me, so participating in this event gives those items an opportunity to be utilized by those who truly need them.

What are you hoping to accomplish with this donation effort? Are there any particular goals you’re aiming to achieve through these contributions?

A: The Garden of Hope Foundation extends support to diverse groups, with a significant focus on women in vulnerable situations. My aspiration with this donation initiative is that the women, children, and adolescents who benefit from these contributions find comfort and courage to embark on new beginnings.

B: My aim is to offer assistance to those facing hardships and to convey a gesture of kindness. While I recognize that donated items alone may not solve all problems, the significance lies in the goodwill behind the gesture. By engaging in this event, backed by both personal and company support, we have the potential to influence those around us positively. Moreover, it demands minimal time and resources, making it a meaningful endeavor.

Did you have any special feelings during the donation process?

A: Sorting through old items reminded me of the moments when I acquired them, whether through impulse purchases or from special events. These memories are beautiful, and I am grateful for the experiences that have shaped me into who I am today. I hope this beauty can be passed on to others.

B: Seeing news about regions with limited resources, especially during cold winters, it struck me that many children are left without warm clothing. Given Taiwan’s milder climate and brief winter seasons, along with the fact that children tend to outgrow their clothes quickly, I believe these winter garments can make a significant difference in ensuring that children in colder areas stay cozy and protected.

What personal impact or significance does this initiative hold for you?

A: Personally, I find a sense of fulfillment on a psychological level through this initiative. As someone typically occupied with work, keeping updated of social issues is not easy. This event offers a chance to delve deeper into the work of The Garden of Hope Foundation and recognize the multitude of social issues that merit attention. From a societal standpoint, leveraging the company’s platform, including our social media channels, to advocate for these social causes and donation endeavors holds the potential for broader and more impactful reach than individual efforts alone.

B: This event breathes new life into these donated items, enabling them to serve their intended purpose and create a cycle of kindness. Moreover, it provides a platform for cherished memories to be repurposed, ensuring that hope continues outward. I look forward to seeing and participating more of such initiatives in the future, as they have the potential to extend aid to even more individuals in need.
