This year, staff at RoZetta Technology are getting involved with the Australian Red Cross Blood Donation Service. We have turned donating blood into a fun team exercise and on a quarterly basis we walk to the Elizabeth Street Donation Centre, donate as a team, have a bite to eat, walk back to the office with a warm feeling knowing that a small gesture can save a life.
Over the past we have donated to charities including The Smith Family, the Cancer Council, R U OK? and Jeans for Genes, and in each event we have had a positive experience in raising spirits, team pride, leadership and a sense of unity within RoZetta.
